    Not quite. If Notice is served DURING fixed term, it's under s.21(1)(b) and the Notice period is simply two months from date of service.
    The rent dates and periods are IRRELEVANT in such case.

On this basis I am now not happy to renew their contract and would like to give notice to them.

    My questions are:
    1. Should I just serve a notice under section 21? If so, is it still two months notice or could I end the contract early? What would my position be in terms of getting rent if I have to give 2 months notice as this would be after the end of the tenancy agreement?

    2. Should I serve Section 8 for breach of contract (this would be based on complaints from freeholders and their tenants)?

    Are there any other options?

    I think ideally I would give them until the end of October so that they have some time to leave/arrange alternative accomodation but would like to ensure that I am in a better position should they not want to leave?

    Any advice would be gratefully received
    Thanks
    Unless you have already served a section 21 notice you cannot insist they move out at end of October. They need at least two months' notice to co-incide a rent due day.

    I think she probably does.There has been a change in the law since I stopped doing conveyancing. My understanding is that today you must disclose anything likely to affect a buyer's decision to proceed. However, I have no practical experience of how the law works in detail and that is why I suggested...

    During the last year or so, the mental health has deteriorated of the neighbour to my rental property. Two tenants have moved out due to the noise made by this person. After the first tenant moved out last year, I tried to sell the property, but the buyer withdrew when they heard that my neighbour was...

    It doesn't matter where the money comes from its about income & affordability. Some benefits eg state pension give a guaranteed income, so this is really good source of income - you can't get sacked from your retirement!

    Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

    The party not in power always makes bold and often hollow claims like this as they want the sound bite/headline and don't need to give any thought to unintended consequences or actually doing as they say. If the RRB (Renters Reform Bill) and EPC changes and more tax increases were all too severe it...

    Rachel Reeves R4 this am told the interviewer that Labour (when in power) would raise money by taxing those with BTL property much more than at present, she opined it was wrong that “they” were “getting away with it”. No challenge from BBC or fact check as to present tax. You are warned.

    The current prevailing form of capitalism, where the inequality between the few super rich people and everyone else is vast and growing is worse than the type of capitalism I grew up with.

    For the record, I don't think socialism is a viable way to run anything - but there's got to be a...

    Capitalism is the worst form of economic system, except for all the others.

  • Reply to Garage left filled with tenant's goods
    by Lawcruncher
    The agent has not thought this through. If you get an order for possession that will still leave you with the goods in the garage. An order is unnecessary. If the notice to quit was valid the tenancy has come to an end and you can enter. If the agreement says nothing about disposing of goods you have...

  • Garage left filled with tenant's goods
    by robbo2233
    Hi! Hoping the forum can advise me. We have a lock-up garage in a residential estate that had been let to an individual who ceased to pay monthly rental. Notice to quit was served by our letting agents Countrywide in October, and yet the tenant's goods still remain in situ. Agents have advised...
