    Of course not. Tenant will just lie and say you did not deliver anything. The N5B form asks for proof of service. Are you going to put your tenant in an arm lock until he signs a receipt?

      For the sake of a 70p stamp and a little walk, I'll continue to send the two letters.
      To be honest, I missed the context - I missed the discussion about sending 1 or 2 copies.

      I am most definitely not a lawyer!
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        .
        An s21 notice is not an eviction notice. It is a notice that the landlord may (or may not..) start court process.

        Use this checklist also: I think it may be more current.. (Sept 2019). The one your link goes to is April 2018...

          So that newer flowchart asks if the CURRENT tenancy started before October 2015. Is the current tenancy the original AST or did it become a SPT after the AST expired after 12 months? I'm confused about this

            I think you'd better contact landlord action after all. You're obviously not up to this.

              Us lesser mortals can quote/.rely on the Interpretation Act for 'presumed delivery'.if procedures are followed.
              In rural areas, adjacent post offices can be several miles apart, not nec accesible via regular public transport.

                Re not needing an EPC I believe there's legislation since October 2018 which says every tenanted property is requires to have one.

                  If tenants hadn't successfully defended s21's by saying they didn't receive anything, landlordzone standard advice would not be to issue two of them.

                    But does not having one stop a S21 notice from being served?

                      I still don't get it. Is the current tenancy the AST which was for 12 months from 07/15 or is the current tenant a SPT which began automatically in 07/16? Surely the answer to this will effect the eviction requirements?

                        Clearly it's the SPT since the original fixed term has expired. The tenancy conditions will be the same except for term, which will be monthly if that was the original period and notice requirements which you've been given already.

                            There's an assumption in that statement....

                              Would a local solicitor or landlord action be the better choice? I used a local solicitor successfully for lease extension and they offer eviction services also.
                              wasted a week with false promises to pay from tenant.
                              Getting sick of this now.

                                  by hazedunks
                                  Hey guys just wanted to check if there are no rent arrears and i simply want to recover the property back is it possible to use an accelerated possession order or does it have to be a standard possession with particular of claims form? Thanks.

                                  If this is verbatim, it is atrociously drafted. You don't, for example, receive a break clause. I'm still trying to work out how to interpret the smoking clause. I think this would have to go to court before one could say for certain what it means.

                                  Hiya, I'm not good at this kind of thing.

                                  I moved​ ​​into a flat in London two weeks ago with a verbal agreement that the other T would not be smoking indoors, at the viewing. This is a joint contract.

                                  I've used openrent too and been happy with the service though it's been a couple of years since I needed a new tenant.

                                  Based on recommendations on this site we used uPad and we had what we thought was excellent service - sadly they have closed.

                                  What are the members current recommendations for online letting agents?

                                  Many thanks

                                  Don't commit to anything until you have a proper evaluation of "leakages".
                                  You can negotiate at any point up to exchange of contracts - after that is possible but can be costly.

                                  As for fraud, yes, don't use email to do anything involving money.

                                  Hi,

                                  We have made an offer to a property in London and we are waiting for the mortgage to come through. However, offer has been accepted and process started. We heard the flat has some leakages so we are asking access to view the property with a plumber so he can tell the work that is needed....

                                  Is the leak from the flat above? In which case, that would be access to someone else's property. You don't have a right of entry. Or is it a leak from the roof, in which case, it is a shared building costs (so all the neighbours needs to pay for repairs).
