    S21s and a rent of over £25k per year

    I have heard that if the rent is above £25000 per annum that a landlord cannot go for possession under S21 as the tenancy is outside statutory law. Does anybody know if this is correct?

    Yes. it is. A new residential letting at > £25 000 is entirely outside the Housing Act 1988, so the Act's procedures (e.g. s.8, s.21) do not apply- nor do Deposit Protection requirements.

    L has contractual and common-law rights against T, of course, unconstrained by that Act.

    1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
    2. Telephone advice: see http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=34638.
