    Wrong dates on the AST

    I need advice on serving a section 21. If you put the wrong dates on an AST to be from the 1st of May to the 1st of November instead of the 1st of May to the 30th of November, and now want to serve a section 21, do you put the last day of tenancy to be the 1st or what the correct date should be ( 30th nov)

    The dates aren't wrong, it's just that the last day of the tenancy is 1 November. It appears you might mean it should end on 31 October as that would have been 6 months from 1 May (but maybe not if you intended it to be 7 months!). All it means is you have allowed an extra day so the fixed term ends on 1 November, and if it were to go periodic then the next rental period begins on 2 November.

    As you are wanting to serve the Notice during the fixed term all you have to state on your S.21 Notice is that you require possession "after the end of the fixed term". You can serve the Notice now - you don't have to wait.

    It's not complicated at all, it's just people get terribly confused for no apparent reason.
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

      Hi

      My tenant was struggling to pay rent, they wanted to move to council house. And asked me to serve notice.
      I served them the section 21 Notice on 28Apr2020 and gave them 4 months to vacate the property on 31-Aug

      Since then the tenant says he doesn't want to move out...

      I understand you are upset but chase the person named on the lease, if they are together still it will impact the both of them so chasing for the CCJ on the named tenant will still impact the one not named as it will carry forward with them if they don't pay right away and when they try and rent again...

      Apologies if I have posted this before, but I cannot find my original post, if I did indeed post!
      I rented my property to a tenant. I knew at the start of the tenancy that the partner planned to move in at a later date, although the tenant denied the partner ever moved in as I expect they did...

      I agree and this is a problem. Very difficult to find someone you can trust that they would do a good job.

      It looks like one has to become a solicitor first to be able to deal with solicitors. Solicitors forget half of the things you tell them, make errors, expect...

      I can not see you getting anywhere with the ex tenants partner but i totally agree you should chase the non paying tenant until the end of time, its is the previous landlords in not going after the arrears which then caused your tenant to be able to not pay you...... somewhere a stand has to be mad...

      The tenant should produce evidence that he is not paying rent due to coronavirus. Also it does not mean he should continue living in the property forever and not pay rent due to coronavirus
