    Which Section 21 Notice to serve for a tenancy which started in 2003

    Hi All,

    I have a very long standing tenant (2003) & the Landlord wishes to sell the property, Form 6a (Section 21) is for all tenancies which commenced after October 2015 but where can I find an old Section 21 notice? Can someone send me a link please?

    Use a form 6a, court will be more familiar with it. Find it on gov.uk
    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...


      In England, you have to use Form 6A, even if the tenancy predates 1 October 2015.

      (There was a time when that was debateable, not anymore.)
      I am not a lawyer, nor am I licensed to provide any regulated advice. None of my posts should be treated as legal or financial advice.

      I do not answer questions through private messages which should be posted publicly on the forum.

        I was hoping no one would ask that! I have to go back a long time to when I learned it. I did do some Googling hoping to find some authority, but failed to do so.

        When you think about it the point of posting is a logical moment to choose because it achieves certainty and is the moment when...

        Morning all

        Do any of you have any experience or knowledge of what to do in this situation.

        The landlord has been opening the ex-tenant's post and found a cheque and saying he isn't going to pass it on to the tenant because the ex-tenant owes rent arrears.

        I know...

        I have been in my new house for 4 years now and still get post for the other owners...... they did leave with a lot of debt though !!! And funnily enough no forwarding address with anyone...... strange that. I have found that returning the post to the sender does little and it just keeps coming, i now...

        The downside is that, I imagine, fairly often, the landlord thinks that there's no chance of actually collecting anything and doesn't bother with enforcement, possibly thinking the ccj is "enough",

        I'm sure it used to be the case that you could simply ask the court to register...

        My tenant stopped paying rent in August of 2019, and in November a notice was served. Beginning of February a possession order was granted and a judgement for money. Then the lockdown, and you can imagine the rest of the story. Now 13 months of unpaid rent. Am going out of my mind here, and nervous...

        I was told it affords the Defendant one last chance to comply and pay up between the Order being made and enforcement being taken, not sure how true that is but seems reasonable....

        That has always been the case for orders made during possession hearings.
        No idea why....

        Other than the postal rule, could you point me at a source to support this?

        This isn't particularly relevant to this thread, it's been something that's fascinated since it was a discussion while I was studying law that was inconclusive.
        That was a while ago, but it's bothered me off...

        As a matter of interest how long it it acceptable to be expected to return to sender? When I moved here I did it for 6 months then everything that came after that went into the bin. They did have a postal divert (I assume for 6 months as we started to get more post after that time) but some things...

        To avoid that being an unfair term I would rephrase that so that the obligation is not to do anything which which would be a breach of the lease. A copy of the lease needs to be given to the tenant so they have time to read it. If the lease has a schedule of "regulations" dealing with matters...
