    S21(a) end date query

    I need to evict a tenant

    the agency that manages this property for me registered the tenant as moving into the property on the 31st dec 07, so the rent due date is the 31st of each month, he tells me.

    so now i want to evict the tenant, i need to issue an S21 (my agent issued it before but he got the dates completely wrong as i was told by my solicitor, so now I have to issue the S21 again)

    so if i issue an S21(a) in april, giving 2 months notice takes me into June, but what should be the last date i put on the notice since June has 30 days and rent is supposed to be collected on the 31st?

    the 29th?

    Any help appreciated

    1. Is this letting definitely an AST?
    2. On what date did the most recently-granted fixed term actually start?
    3. Did you receive (or already hold) any deposit from T at that point?
    4. If so, did you protect it?
    5. How long was that fixed term?
    6. Have you already served any s.21 Notice on T?

      2. On what date did the most recently-granted fixed term actually start? - the fixed term started 31st dec 07, for 6 months, so ended in June 08, then it was periodic.
      3. Did you receive (or already hold) anydeposit from T at that point? - no deposit was received,
      4. If so, did you protect it? - NA
      5. How long was that fixed term? - 6months
      6. Have you already served any s.21 Notice on T? - My agent served an s21(b) on the tenant during the fixed term, as a precautionary step, but when i showed this to my solicitor he advised it was dated wrong.

          The original arrangement with the tenants, was it ia fully managed or tenant find only arrangement ? I have done this a few times on a tenant find basis and let all my AST's go periodic (so the tenants stay), i have paid zero to every agent, and they have never been knocking asking for any money.

          With regards to keep or sell. Those 4 properties are not just assets, but you need to see them as say children, which need looking after. You can't switch off because you are busy. It is 24/7 responsibility, as you are responsible for the property and the health and safety of the people living. If...

          Almost anything beats working for a living.

          Running a portfolio is just as demanding and stressful. If someone worked in an office, it is a 9 to 5 job. Their taxes are paid by their employer.


          Running a portfolio of properties, can be demanding. Even with agents in place....

          Becoming a landlord because you've inherited some property makes about as much sense as inheriting several cars and setting up a taxi business.
