    Serving notice help

    Hello,
    hoping to get some advice from the experts!
    I have never had to serve notice before and I am having to do so now because I want to sell the property (personal reasons).
    This tenancy began 14th October 2017, it is a 12 month contract, ending 13th October 2017.
    I plan to visit the tenants next weekend, Saturday 22nd September to sit down and respectfully let them know.

    I have found a “form 6a” online.. and I see there is a date I must insert. Would this be “Saturday 22nd November”? And if we agree they can stay longer whilst property for sale, is this okay?
    Many thanks in advance

    yes all legal requirements complied with, simply just double checking the date is ok for the form?

    its a joint tenancy in England. There should be no problems as I know they wish to move to a bigger property anyway. I just wanted to make sure I’m completing this form correctly?
    So you'll be fine with all of this then?

    Wishing to move into a bigger property is all very well. Many would like that too, but have no prospects nor funding to do so...

    If you're giving them the notice by hand on 22 September, whether the date of 22 November is okay depends on what your tenancy agreement say about how service may be effected and when a notice is deemed served. Since you haven't answer that question, we can't answer yours.

    Answers to these questions would help.....

    Assuming assured shorthold tenancy, assuming England, then yes Form 6A. Notice does not end tenancy, it merely allow you to apply for possession in the county court after the notice period in the notice and within 6 months of the notice being served. The notice period is "at least two months" from when the notice is deemed served, and the date (almost certainly in law) cannot be before the fixed term ends. What if anything does your tenancy agreement say about how service of notice may be effected?

    Have you complied with all your legal requirements for which non-compliance would render you unable to give a valid section 21 notice? Tenancy deposit protection & associated prescribed information, annual gas safety certificate, energy performance certificate, property/landlord licensing if that is required.....

  • Breach of lease contract

    I bought the new leasehold flat refurbished 5 years ago by {Mod name removed}. From last December the building cladding fails to stop the rain water infiltration in my flat. Each rain the water penetrates through the walls and round the windows panels. In February, I sent the disrepair notice to {Mod...

    I think that the cladding is not watertight, can be a latent defect. The problem is how to make builder to repair or correct any defective work. The developer denies any liability for problems have arisen 2 years after completion.

    There is only the damage insurance. No collateral warranty, no NHBC or something similar

    Good Evening All,

    I found this forum by a happy accident and would like advice on a tenancy issues on which I am not an well versed in.

    The landlord doesn't have to be the owner (however you define it) of the property. Your landlord is whoever granted you the tenancy (i.e. who it says is the landlord on the tenancy agreement).

    You have a right to unwind within 90 days of the start of the tenancy but if and only if you signed...

  • Universal Credit - Rent Arrears - Tenant not paying - Section 8
    funkar
    Hello everyone.

    It's about my tenant who was destined to give me trouble.

    So, as soon as universal credit started, Rent payments switched to UC from the local council.

    My tenant is ever since mostly drunk and enjoying the money which he was supposed to pay me as...

    I think the one real **** up about UC is the fact the govt thought that those in receipt of full HB could be trusted not to drink it all or smoke it all, sadly we know a lot can not handle any form of budgeting and it's this element which is causing most issues, get the tenant out ASAP and think very...

  • Renewing A Tenancy
    ABC123
    The tenant wants to renew the tenancy for a further fixed term of 3 years (with a break-clause). The current tenancy agreement has some special terms (e.g. the T can remove certain items of furniture but will have to replace them with like-for-like furniture at the end of the tenancy).

    Lots can go wrong/change in 3 years. Never tie yourself up for tenant advantage. Go periodic, if not I'll bet you'll be back on here needing more advice on how to activate a possibly dodgy break clause.
