    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.
