    No expiry date specified on Notice under s.21(4)(a)?

    My legal adviser just issued an S21 4a today. There is no explicit expiry date written. He says its safer not to put a date and you can rely on the saving clause. Any comments on this below ? There's a square in brackets and an "or" in the phrase.. u know how techical judges can be ! The advisor says its OK.


    (4) Date of
    expiry (Note
    3 overleaf)

    after ()


    or the day on which a complete period of your tenancy expires next after the end of two months from the service of this notice.

    There is apparently authority that the practice adopted by your legal adviser is acceptable.

      I just printed one of these forms off from LLzone, so are you saying that we don't have to put the date of expiry in that box? Can we leave it blank.

      I wanted to issue all my tenants with these forms at the end of their AST when they naturally become P'AST's so that if there are any problems in the future these are issued. But I was worried that the tenants might feel insecure if I issue this to them with a date on it, and may decide not to stay.

        You can specify the time by date or by clause as has been done by sandmonsters' lawyer,Specifying by clause takes out the risk of getting the dates wrong.
        However if there is no clause on the form you are using then you must use the dates.
        Sandmonster your advisor is spot on.
        The only problem may be that your tenants whilst intending to leave may not understand the clause or may interpret the date differently to you and still be there on the date you expect them to be gone.

          There has to be either:

          (a) a specific date

          (b) a formula that allows a date to be worked out.

          Unwise (and pointless) to do both as that requires the formula to produce the same date as specified (which of course needs to be correct).

            I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

            We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

            My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

            What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

            Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

            I humbly note...

            The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

            The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

            I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

            In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

            IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.
