    Section 21 Date of Expiry

    Hi All,

    I'm just about to serve a section 21 to a troublesome tenant and I'm not sure about the Date of Expiry.

    The tenancy is outside the fixed term.

    Does this require 2 clear months? ie. I want to serve the notice 12th Jan 2010-is the date of expiry 11th March 2010 or 31st March 2010?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Please answer:

    * What date did the AST's fixed term end?
    * What is the rental period, e.g. is rent paid monthly, weekly, etc.?
    * Is any protectable deposit protected?

      Hi Tom

      Fix term finished yesterday. (Nothing to do with serving s.21 today)
      Rent is (should be) paid monthly. (Always just inside 2 month so can't serve s.8)
      I've just protected the deposit today!

        Fixed term ended on 10/01/2010. a STP (Statutory Periodic Tenancy) now exists, which runs from the 11th of a month to the 10th of the next month.

        The notice may be served on any day, but must expire on the 10th of a month (the last day of a tenancy period); and, giving a minimum of 2 months notice.

        If a valid s.21(4)(a) notice is served on 12/01/2010, the earliest expiry would be: 'after 10 April 2010'.

          3 months virtually! I'm in danger of losing the other 3 tenants at the moment and 3 months minimum won't impress them.

          Thanks Tom for your help.

            It would have been better to serve an s.21 notice in the fixed term; in which case expiry would not need to end on the last day of the rent period, e.g. if s.21(1)(b) was served on: 09/01/2010, then expiry would be: 'after 08/03/2010'.

              Tessa Sandersons book says about S21

              "it must expire on or after the end of your fixed term"

              is this incorrect advice ?

                No but a mite misleading. The Notice has to expire no earlier than the AST does. Her 'on' could be ambiguous.

                  The problem is that the EICR is a safety issue.
                  And there is the potential of a large fine if one isn't carried out by the end of this month.

                  I have had one check done while the tenant was working from home.
                  They had to take half a day off work to allow it to be completed, and...

                  It would be possible to create a tenancy agreement that was not made as a contract until other documentation was supplied to the tenant.
                  Conditional agreements are possible, although why a landlord would do that is lost on me.

                  However, a contractual term which allowed the landlord,...

                  If a gas certificate was not given to the new tenant at the start of the new tenancy, would it invalidate the AST ???

                  Why aren't we supposed to look at social media? I always do and have rejected one tenant for my HMO because all his photos showed him with a pint in his hand and out with the lads which gave me a really bad feeling. Unfortunately, he arrived in a gang of contractors so I couldn't really refuse him....

                  Hello,
                  I wonder if anyone could recommend a credit check service please?
                  I have seen a few posts recommend openrent but just wondering if that's what everyone is using?

                  Thank you.

                  Agree with the above really.
                  If the issue for the tenant is working hours then find someone who will do the work evening or weekend.
                  If the issue is covid concerns then leave it unless it is a proper safety issue....

                  If it is not an emergency, urgent or a safety issue I would not attempt to enter a tenant's home until the COVID restrictions are suitably eased to allow people from one household to enter another household (step 3?). Aside from the risk of infection between occupiers and employee/contractor is it right...
