    Notice to quit

    Hello. I have a 2-bed house in England with one tenant. She has 6-month STA which started 1st January 2018 and continues on a rolling basis. It stated that either party can give notice to quit based on "statutory" requirements. My question is this:Can I give her a 3-month (or 6-month) notice to quit now? Or must I wait until after the eviction moratorium period before I can issue the notice to quit?

    Many thanks for your help.

    S21 notice can be served now with 3 months notice with the usual caveats of deposit, pi, how to rent, gsc etc

      If you give six month's notice, it will expire before you can do anything to escalate it.

      If you want the tenant to leave, but don't have any particular time pressure, the most effective thing is to communicate with the tenant.
      Starting the process with formal notice is not usually the best first move.
      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).

        A landlord's notice to quit for periodic tenancy has no legal effect (that's in 1988 Housing act). Serve an s21 instead.
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...
