    Section 21 Periodic Tenancy Notice - Dates

    Before you Groan, hi sorry this is probably a silly question but I just want to make 100% sure I get it right and would appreciate your confirmation thank you so much

    I have a tenancy who had an assured tenancy

    Started on 1st Feb 2010 ended on 31st July 2010 - since then its been a periodic tenancy month by month - they pay the rent monthly on the 1st of each month.

    Can I just 100% confirm that I am sending them a Section 21 Notice Periodic NOTICE TO QUIT

    The date I want them to leave giving two months notice - would it be 31st March 2011 or 1st April 2011.

    Can you please advise I know I have to get this 100% right thanks so much

    A s.21 Notice IS NOT A NOTICE TO QUIT. Geddit?
    No matter how many times we [= westminster, usually] posts that, people keep ignoring it.

      If you serve under s.21(4)(a), correctly and subject to usual pre-requisites, your Notice whenever served:
      a. must give T at least two months' advance warning of your intention to seek possession; and
      b. has to state a possession date such as 'after 31 March 2011', if you serve before the end of January.

            Err.. no, if tenant (not tenancy) has an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. If they had an Assured Tenancy then you would not be able to issue a S21...
            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...

              The generic term (for any letting under Part I of the Housing Act 1988) is 'assured tenancy'.
              There are two types of AT:
              1. AST (Assured Shorthold Tenancy).
              2. SAT (Standard Assured Tenancy [= any AT that's not an AST]).
