  • Section 21 Date

    Hi,

    If anyone could help with this would be much appreciated

    I wish to give my tenant notice. The start date of the tenancy in the 6th August 2009 for a six month period so am I right in putting the date - 5th May 2010 on the section 21 4 a notice.

    Any help on this would be great

    Thanks

      Better to say 'after 5 May 2010'.
      Oh, and it's a section 21(4)(a) Notice; don't omit the parentheses.

          No, well before 6 March 2010. Don't delay, you'll kick yourself.

          In this case, the rent period runs from the 6th and ends on the 5th of each calendar month.

            OK Thanks Poppy - I will issue it tomorrow 12th February 2010 and stat that I require possession of the dwelling after 5th May 2010.

            I'm worried about getting it wrong. Thanks again

              I agree with Poppy, and yet I would be worried that an early s21 may induce a 'what have I got to lose' mentality and negative effects on the reliability of rent payments. Your choice.

                As a landlord what approach do you take to replacing white goods in your rental properties?
                Do you buy cheapest brands and then dispose of them when they go wrong as it is pricey to repair?
                Or do you go for a better brand and hope for longevity?

                I've never been able to get a fridge repaired, they only have one working system and when it breaks it's time for a new fridge, so I buy the cheapest one that fits with a name I've heard of.

                Washing machines can be repaired, so I pay more for one that has...

                This is an interesting one, got me into a spin.
                Tenants signed AST but decided to leave after 6 months and 3 days (problem with moving) using the break clause in the AST. I protected the deposit using DPS (Insured) and returned the deposit minus deductions when the moved out.

                That would be pointless.

                The tenant would have to sue to get their own money back.
                Apart from the waste of the court and tenant's time, there would be little or no compensation because the tenant would suffer no loss to compensate them for (loss of interest?).

                Your right that the penalty claim is the law and it's your right to claim it.

                Unfortunately however you won't receive much sympathy on here,as most of us recognise that most of the breaches have been made by inexperienced landlords and not through any intention to rip you off.

                The legislation has been in place for a decade and has been revisited at least twice (and tweaked each time).
                The deposit schemes have fairly clear guides about what needs to be done and how and when to do it.

                Given the tenant(s) the Prescribed Information is part of the process of...

                It discourages landlords from taking a deposit at all, and instead making it up with higher rent. This discriminates against tenants staying for a long time.

                I think that is what is happening to o/p.



                It's all a lot of nonsense. Tenant could always sue if landlord...

                I buy the cheapest machine I can source. It is usually a Hotpoint or Indesit. And they all come out of the same factory. Some of them last for years. I've just replaced a Hotpoint WD after 11 years with a new Indesit one. I try and avoid the ones with the digital display and too many fancy options as...

                What’s evident from responses in this thread that equal emphasis was given to deposit protected within time frame and T were informed in a prescribed manner, some going as far as getting the T to sign the acknowledgement!
                I am really flabbergasted to read some of these emphasis, surely the point...
