    Section 21 form 6a

    I served a tenant a section 21 in july 2020 and gave them the recommended 3 month notice period at the time due to covid 19. Is it too late for me to apply for the possession order now? Wil the section 21 still be valid?

    Thanks

    In July 2020, section 21 notices had a six month expiry, so it's probably just expired.
    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).

        Is there any other option? Is the tenant in 6 months arrears or close to it? Is there any anti-social behaviour?

              Only if you want to end the tenancy.

                Did the section 21 have an end date of July or was it issued in july to end in october ?

                  Other options:

                  - ask tenant nicely to leave
                  - try bribery (legally)
                  - decide to live with them staying
                  - sell the place with tenant in (entirely legal)
                  - etc etc etc
                  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...

                      Serve notice, and stay alert of when it expires and proceed to with court action as quickly as possible. Ensure all your paperwork is in order otherwise you will back serving the notice again.

                        Don't do anything, when it due to end either increase rent or serve notice.

                        Hi

We have now found out they plan to have their partner move in. please can anyone advise what is best for us to do? Does it need to be a whole new contract or can...

                        Hello All

                        What county court bailiffs do if they come to evict and the tenants say they are not feeling well?...

                        I didn't, but since the tenant hasn't engaged at any stage, including attending hearings, complying with orders, responding to texts, emails and letters, I think it's a good claim. He wouldn't even respond to requests to allow access to the Gassafe plumber for safety checks. The guidance says that...

                        I'm glad you mentioned this, I noticed some of the extremely cheap houses seem to offer the best yield, but I thought to myself "I would not want to live in that area". I like the idea of going slightly above average to try and avoid areas that...

                        Hi all,

                        First post here. I have been reading for a while but thought I'd make a post. I am looking to get into property investing as I sold my business a while ago and have a considerable sum to invest. My main objectives for investing are long term inflation protection and a couple...

                        I have rung up about a few houses for sale that have tenants in place. Also, I have checked recent sold prices of houses that appear to need minimal work doing to make them ready to rent, though admittedly you can only see so much from pictures...

                        Also, I'm completing the MCOL application now for submission tomorrow, before the tenant has even left because, a) I've no idea where he'll disappear to and b) I've next to zero chance of recovering any money. I've no experience of this and am completely winging it, so I won't be offended if anyone...
