    Section 21 expiry date - AST expiry date

    Hello everyone,

    Apologies if this question has already been answered - I searched but
    couldn't find

    If the 6 month AST began on the 21st July 2010, and I wish to serve Section 21 Notice with more than 2 months remaining on the tenancy what date shall
    I put the notice to expire - 21st, or after 21st January 2011?

    Also, can you please tell me what the correct syntax is when entering
    the expiry date on the Section21 form?

    Many thanks,

    Simon

    You need to write After 20th January 2011
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

      (Not always a dumb question) on the AST what is the stated end date of the fixed term?? 20th Jan 2011??
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

            Good! Errors in end dates lead to absurdities (e.g. lettings for six months + one day).

              Ah yes, that could become a bit weird.

              One to remember, cheers!

                Section 21 Expiry Date - Query

                Hello,

                Please would someone be able to confirm what expiry date my section 21 would need to have -
                Assured Tenancy Agreement started on 1st May 2009 until 1 May 2010, the rolled onto a Periodic Tenancy.
                If the notice was served on 24/03/11 should the expiry date read - After the 1st June 2011 or, if later, the day on which a complete period of your Tenancy expires next after the end of two months from the service of your notice
                Thanks in advance for your help
                Holly

                  A. Was it really for one year and one day (1 May 2009 - 1 May 2010)?
                  B. Was rent due monthly in advance during it?
                  C. Is the Notice under s.21(4)(a)?
                  D. Before serving the Notice:
                  a. did you protect T's deposit and give the Prescribed Information to T; and
                  b. (if it's an HMO) did you have it licensed by the Local Housing Authority?

                      Thanks. The term ended on & inc. 1 May 2010. Next day (2 May 2010), the SPT began- and on 2nd. of each subsequent month.

                      To end the SPT, your s.21(4)(a) Notice must:
                      a. give T at least two months' Notice; and
                      b. run-on to & inc. an SPT month end.

                      A Notice served on 24 March would therefore have to run up to & inc. 2 June, not 'after 1 June'. But yours is saved by the or, if later, the day on which a complete period of your Tenancy expires next after the end of two months from the service of your notice. That saving wording tells T that you can begin Possession Proceedings on/after 3 June. OK?

                          This is very helpful, MdeB, thank you. I will try to relax about the inventory now.

                          We've recently rented a house that from the very start seemed badly taken care of - there were various problems like a mouldy washing machine/curtains, broken curtain rails, etc. When we arrived to meet the inventory clerk, we signed a 2-page document of handwritten inventory notes (we broadly agreed...

                          The process seems to have changed recently.
                          The landlord claims from the deposit and that claim should have a summary of what they are claiming and why.
                          You dispute that and then you both have one chance to explain your side of the story.

                          Every notice escalated to court is recorded and the figures published quarterly, so breaking out the s21 notices from the s8 shouldn't be complicated.

                          Two of the links are to House of Commons research papers, to be fair!...

                          When a new tenant moves into a property, I get them to sign a section 21 so that if whatever reason things don’t work out, the necessary paperwork is already in place.
                          I’ve never had a need to exercise this yet, but would it work?...

                          It depends on your local market.
                          Mine seems expect a fridge freezer and washing machine as an "unfurnished" property.

                          Blinds not curtains and it varies - usually whats been left behind (have had to add some blind safety hook things in the past).
