    Another section 21 Question

    This is a slightly different question, does a section 21 notice have to be served at the property concerned ? Can the noticed be served to the tenant in the agents office?
    I am here because I am inexperienced and want to learn.

    That's your answer.
    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.

      Why cant it? If the T signs it to say they have recieved it (in the agents office) is it invalid?

      I always post mine anyway but a lot of agents serve them at the start of a tenancy in the agents office.

        I see what you mean. It is fine to serve it at the outset as you are serving it personally on the tenant which is what is required (but not before the tenancy has commenced i.e. until they have moved in!). When the tenant has moved in the chances of the tenant coming to the agent's office that often is unlikely and S.196* states that the Notice should be addressed to the tenant[s] in his/her/their own name[s] so service at the property is preferable for the avoidance of doubt - Note too the word addressed.

        * Look at S.196 Law of Property Act 1925 for definition of correct service.

          Thank you Paul, as usual to the point answer.
