    Section 21 with a misspelt Christian Name

    Agent has issued a Section 21 with a misspelt Christian Name but correct surname, just one letter wrong in forename. Would he need to issue a new one.

    If you want to go to court asap, I would go with what you have. If it can wait, send one with correct spelling.
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.


      If you are the agent and the landlord, issue a new one. If you are the tenant, assume that the court would be happy with the old one.

        Sound advice. You can never tell if the judge will tell the landlord he should have got his notice right or tell the tenant that the error is immaterial.

        It should be the latter. Whilst the court is more likely to want a notice to be correct in all respects if it has to be in a prescribed form, the general rule is that a notice is not invalidated if the recipient is not misled. No one would query a notice if the address of the premises contained "Raod" instead of "Road". There is no reason why it should not be the same if the recipient's name is shown as "Tohmas" instead of "Thomas". If the name is wrong the recipient may have a case, but possibly not if "Robin" should be "Robert".

          To agree with the above comments, i would not do it. If your tenant came along with a whole load of other builders quoting for the same job then what are the chances you would pick him as being the very best bet ? Just because his is your tenant does not make him the ideal choice..... if anything it...

          Also consider the date of the EPC - the assessment has change a lot since they came in 10 years ago and and old assessment may be out by quite a lot of points or may have had work done that is not reflected in the EPC.

          Some upgrades are easy - LED light bulbs, loft insulation; others much more tricky - floor insulation; party wall insulation; some are just very expensive - external wall insulation.

          The EPC assessment is not fit for purpose so it is really tricky to know what to do. What I wouldn't do...

          I don't want to rain on everyone's parade, but I do not wait for tenants to move out before marketing the property, and I sign the new tenancy agreement providing the current tenant has not attempted to rescind the notice/everything seems to point to them leaving, when they said they would. A 6 week...

          The last 20 years may have been the 'golden years' for BTL. There is more regulation & higher taxation on BTLs; mortgage costs are going up; tenants are getting more rights & EPC C is coming.

          The stock market is the place to go instead - £20k per year in an ISA means all tax is...

          Thanks for the reply. This is a different case.
          The defendants are asking to set aside. Any paperwork sent to me has come from the courts only and not them.

          I still can't think of a better thing to invest in even given all the new regulations. The lessons i have learnt are:-
          1) Never let to people on benefits.
          2) Don't over leverage your borrowing.
          3) Have access to spare funds for unexpected things like a new boiler being required or...

          The two I have done were quite informal - the tenants didn't show up so I had to wait quite a while as they give every opportunity for them to arrive late.

          I was shown into a room with the judge sitting at a big table and offered a seat on the other side of the table. The judge looked at...
