    You may wish to rephrase that 😀

      Additional information pertinent to the reasoning behind serving of notice none of which appears in the initial post.

        It's best not to base opinion on ifs, buts, probably and assumptions. Best to ask for the facts first.

          You have more confidence in estate agents than I do but it seems like you are a lucky person so you may get away with it. I am curious to know why you are bothering with a forum like this when you have access to people who never make mistakes.

            Indeed, for someone who didn't know a 6a is a s21, I'm flabbergasted at how clever this poster is!

                Have a read of the OFT and Foxton's. A large agent whose arrogance got shot down by the OFT.

                    Let's hope that your recent run of good luck continues, and that your unequivocal faith in letting agents is never shown to have been misplaced. Please remember that you are putting your arse in their hands, and no-one wants to see you being on the receiving end of an agents’ enormous cock-up.
                    All advice given by me is purely on the basis of being ‘in my opinion’: please check with the relevant professional before acting on it. If my advice saves you money, mine's a pint.

                        Tenancies run from midnight to midnight.
                        Courts will treat them as if they do anyway, so there’s no point pretending otherwise.

                        If a 12 month agreement is less risky than a 24 month agreement, why isn’t a 6 month agreement even less risky?

                        You still haven’t explained why your agent seemed to think the section 21 notice would cause the tenant to leave.

                          Midnight or noon, same result, 8 days rent, agent agreed which matters. Chat lines have different opinions with ifs, buts, probably and assumptions which don't work in real life.
                          0 to 7 including 7 equals 8. Simple maths.

                          6 months is less risky but too short period makes impractical for residential lettings.

                              All of my properties are let on six month terms.
                              However, I am not letting in London which is a different market.

                              I cannot imagine a let in London with a six month fixed term being any kind of obstacle, other than to your agent if they book management fees in advance.

                                  For both notices the notice period is 2 months and does not have to align with tenancy periods. Courts deem notices sent my first class post as served 2 working days after it is posted....get proof of postage.

                                  Hi,
                                  I let a flat to a tenant on an AST in England which has been running for a few years on a contractual periodic basis. I have now found myself in a position where I need to live in the property.

                                  I did serve the s8 "prior grounds" notice (Ground 1 and 2) before the start...

                                  I don’t think you’ll get the property back by October either. The tenant is angling for social housing and the council will advise her to hand in until bailiffs physically removed her from the property. Insurance companies and solicitors can’t make the process go any faster. A solicitor might...

                                  Properly insulated properties also help to keep the air cool inside during summer. Much in the same way a Thermos flask can keep its contents either hot or cold.

                                  If you had a well insulated home then you wouldn’t need larger radiators to use with heat pumps. Once you reached the desired...

                                  Looking at the news today (similar to yesterday and the day before), they are talking about combined energy bills of 4-5k a year...... by April 2023. There are many properties up north where the combined rental per annum is between 6-7k....... that is insane.

                                  I really can't see the new PM (who ever that is) is going to reach into their pockets to then give out more money, If they do I think it's going to be like the winter payment, only selected people will be eligible, and guess what LL's will not be one of them.

                                  I am trying to work out the best way to recoup some of the increase in the cost of the gas given that we can only put up the rent once a year but the cost is going to be increased in October and probably every 3 months.
