    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

    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.....

      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?

        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.

          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...

                Hello, this is my first post.

                I am about send a notice to quit to my tenants, they have been there for over 3 years. The tenancy began on the 27th day of the month. My question is, does it have to end on the 27th or can it end on any day of the month, say the 2nd?

                Thanks...

                I have a friend who has rented a property on an assured shorthold tenancy for 3 years now. The tenancy has long expired and so has automatically converted into a periodic tenancy.

                Recently following an inspection the boiler in the property was condemned and switched off as a result. She...

                She seems to have her own ideas of how the law works, else she is trying to convince you that's how the law works.

                You have told her she can't just write that she is putting it up without your friends agreement and your friend doesn't have to leave if she doesn't pay the increase. No need...

                She also refuses to issue the section 13 notice that I asked for and said the rent is going regardless, although she has now changed it to the 1st April as I said the 1st March was not enough notice....

                We have offered her 11 different dates to come and inspect, she is saying no I am coming on this date at this time. My friend has no problem with her inspecting but she wants to be home at the time and she wants me there to translate and I don’t finish work until 5pm. We have asked her to come at...

                The tenant would be in breach of their obligations. The landlord's remedy would be to start eviction proceedings for breach of covenant. However, if a reasonable alternative time had been proposed, I don't think the court would grant possession as a result.

                On the other hand, from the...

                From that email she isn't saying she will enter if noone lets her in. She is being vague about what she will do. In theory she could get a court order to gain entry. But if you have given her alternative times for access then this would be silly.

                Based on what she says in the email I don't...
