    That's a good point! I'll ask for them. They can have the photocopies back! Thanks for the advice. I'm having a nightmare and feel the situation is very unfair, but I will follow the law. Just wish I had somewhere to live myself.....

    Since you are representing yourself you will need to provide a bundle of documents for the court and I would assume that it is preferable to have the originals in your possession.

    They are no use to the agents, are they?

    Another time, it would be better to send two copies of the s21 from different post offices and to keep the free certificates of posting as a court will accept these as proof you served it. (A T might persuade a judge he hadn't received one notice, but not two!)

    If you have not done that, then the original certificate would be better than a photocopy, I would think. Who has that?

    Hi,
    I have rented my house through an estate agency, and I asked them to give notice to my tenants, which they did as a s21.
    I now need to go through the official channels to get tenants out (council have advised them to stay until formal eviction, grr).
    I am doing the accelerated possession papers myself, but am unsure if I need a certificate of service. As I said, I instructed the estate agency to give the enants notice, and I have photocopies of the S21 and a photocopy of a proof of postage from the post office.
    Please advise! I have never rented my property before, and have had my fingers well and truly burnt.

    Regards, LJB
