    Section 21- correct dates or not?

    Hi again

    Just wondering on the below

    We signed a 12 month agreement on 29th march 2007

    Landlord serves us 2 months notice on the notice it states that the tenancy agreement expires on the 28th march

    Am I right in thinnking that it should expire on the 29th march 2008?


    Also the notice is printed off a computer and says the folowing

    As you know the fixed term of your current assured shorthold tenancy agreement expires on 28th march

    I am writing to give you the required minimum of two months notice to recover possession of the property (Addy here)

    This notice is required under section 21 of the housing act 1988
    can you please confirm nearer that date a suitable time for the handover of the keys and final property inspection with yourselves.

    I read somewhere that the notice had to be in writing

    But can anyone confirm if thats all correct

    Thanks

    Nope, if it expired on the 29th March, that would be 12 months and one day.

      Are you trying to say it should be handwritten?

      if so, you're wrong

        Solicitors have a code of practice.
        They can't conjure possession hearings out of thin air....

        I have today been told that I am getting evicted and that there is a hearing next week.
        But I haven't received any Court papers, no notice to quit, no section 8, or section 21.
        I don't even know how this is possible as I thought there was a ban on eviction hearings.
        I owe rent yes,...

        If there's mould in the property it almost has to come from condensation inside.
        The (alkaline) lime in the plaster and the acid in the mortar mean that water coming from outside doesn't usually allow mould to develop.

        Mould forms when water that condenses on the surface is left there....

        I wonder if I could trouble someone for advice, having recently become a Landlord for the first time ?


        BACKGROUND
        A year ago I inherited a small 1970s one bedroom flat in Birmingham.


        The flat was originally heated with a couple of electric bar heaters....

        by jpkeates
        I don't have any idea how this is meant to work.
        But, the only people who really matter are the landlord and the tenant.

        The agent works for the landlord, and if they've found themselves in a conflict if interest, have to resolve it in favour of the landlord.
        They'll never accept...

        I have received a s21 notice to leave at the end of August (this includes the current extended 3 month covid19 period). I wish to leave the property early as I have now found another property to rent but this can only be ‘held’ for a period of 2 months by the letting agent. I have asked if I can...

        Yes, the courts are still just about functioning, so a money claim is still possible, if unlikely.
        If a landlord came here seeking advice about a tenant in arrears, I would suggest a money claim rather than a possession claim, in the first instance.

        However, tou should still receive...

        Yes if they have claimed for it, but it depends on what basis the possession proceedings are made. I don't think there was sarcasm, just a character. Artfuls comment re benefits is referring to himself, and he gave good advice re shelter. And some landlords are bad we know that, but I'm not one of the...

        Jon66: there were sarcastic responses from a person further up. It's there to read.
        I did contact CAB and my local council. I told my landlord in 2014 there was a leak, nothing done. Same again in 2017, 2018. Told in 2019 bath tub was dangerous, don't bath, nothing done by LL. At that same...
