  • Section 21 help please

    I want to serve a Section 21 on my tenants but am unsure as to what date to use. It is a 6 months assured shorthold tenancy which commenced on 9/01/10 when they paid their first monthly payment in advance. However because they wanted to decorate we said they could have have 1 week free of payment and make their monthly payments on the 16th of each month instead of the 9th. I am aware i must give them 2 months notice but do not know what date in May i should use.Should it be related to the Tenancy agreement or the rental payment date
    Thanks

    Tenancy agreement.

    If you use the phrase "after 8th July 2010" and serve it any time before 8th May.

      Use the date on the AST agreement.
      Private agreements concerning refunds or the date the rent is paid, do not affect the starting date of the tenancy. It is this starting date which is relevant to the section 21 notice.

        Yes. Whether using a standard form or a letter, ensure that it complies with s.21(1)(b) of the Housing Act 1988.

            I've lost track of the number of times I've seen on this forum posts like this. Why would you consider going into business with someone who you dont trust due to previous issues? Walk away.

            I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

            I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

            The ones I have mentioned all explicitly state that they are compliant with Privacy Shield.

            I mean, as said and repeated, if you are a cloud data provider in the EU and a minimum serious then your service complies with EU law...

            The only popular (used by real people routinely) cloud supplier who claims compliance is Microsoft for Office 365 storage (since 2014).
            None of the other suppliers, as far as I can find out, claim to be compliant - although it's fudged on most of their "help" pages.

            I am...
            A data storage strategy is important because digital storage media are inherently unreliable and all file formats and physical storage media will ultimately become obsolete.

            Read my comments again... Thank you for your contribution to the thread.



            Privacy Shield has only been mentioned in relation to compliance with current rules.




            As said, I'm sure providers will update their operations to comply with the GDPR,...

            I feel that GDPR is being misunderstood here (which is common).

            Privacy Shield is one tick box (of many) towards GDPR compliance. It allows the "transfer" of data outside of the EU jurisdiction.

            However, it doesnt (for example) address the needs for the Data Controller...

            It currently allows to send data to the US legally. As said, if your provider either keeps the data in the EU or complies with Privacy Shield then there is no problem.

            I have no doubt that storage providers will adapt to the GDPR so as to continue doing business legally in the EU. Landlords...

            I was responding to this point.

            And said


            Many landlords store data on their phones, laptops and PCs.
            They don't have a data strategy in place, they just have documents and files that hold personal data.
            Those are often connected to a cloud service automatically...
