    S21 dates on weekly tenancy

    I have just taken over some properties from another agent and the landlord wants me to serve S21 on those in arrears. I never deal with weekly tenancies and thus am a little confused!.

    Tenancy started Friday 9th Jan 2009 for one week and thereafter weekly.....

    tenant has to give landlord four weeks notice in writing expiring on a monday (according to the agreement)

    I know I have to give at least 2 months notice but 8 weeks notice is not always 2 months so unsure as to what dates I need to give.

    Logically I am thinking that I can give notice on a monday and it has to end on a sunday?

    can anyone help me??

    Thanks guys.

    Assuming that these are ASTs, created as contractual weekly tenancies, the Notice is under s.21(4)(a). It must run for at least two months and then up to the end of a tenancy week (i.e. ending at the end of a Thursday).

        Glad to help.
        Thinks: there is a Rent Book or equivalent, I hope. See s.4 of LTA 1985.

            That's an answer; but not to the question that I asked!

                Hi
                I appreciate this is an old thread, but I need to clear up the last point.
                Would the absence of a rent book as required by LLT Act '85 mean that any s21 notice would be invalid? I can see from the act that not providing a rent book is 'an offence', but I can't see any reference to it invalidating a s21 notice (similar to the way the deposit scheme works).

                Thanks in advance.

                  No it would not invalidate the s.21 notice.

                  But as you said it's an offence in itself for which you risk being fined. So you still should provide a rent book...
