    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...

              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]).

                reply to: theartfullodger - the question relates to the agent's commission - the contracts are for one year or more and whether the agent should charge commission of a tenant stays longer than a year

                reply to Andrew Dodd - I think you've misunderstood. As I mentioned the house has been let since 2006 - the agent finds the tenants and secures the rental amount, draws up the contract - it's a successful operation. My query related to the period the agent wants to charge commission on. That's what...

                I use an estate agent on a tenant find basis with no management but always interview each of the prospective tenants who pass the tests, i pay 1 months rent as their fee and that is it, if the tenancy lasts 1 year or 10 years i pay that one fee and that is it. Anything else i would not accept.

                Hi All

                We have a property which is managed by a letting agent
                He has found new Tennent's that want to lease it for 5 yrs. There is a large hospital near the property and the tenants are NHS workers.

                My questions are as below.

                1) I read somewhere a long...

                So either do it yourself, no agent, or specify 6 months then rolling periodic.

                Can I ask advice on this matter. I've had a property in London since 2006 which is rented. Whichever estate agent I use, they all want to charge a letting fee (let only not managed) on the whole term. Tenants often sign for more than a year and the estate agent is keen to charge a commission for each...

                Why exactly do you want to use an agent for a Let only non-managed?

                The most critical bit of the process which you should be doing yourself (even for fully managed) you are devolving to others. Will end badly....

                I really would be grateful if someone could please comment on my above post ;-

                1) Can you make an amendment to the existing tenancy agreement removing the estate agents as managing agents?

                2) if the estate agents will not amend the existing agreement and still say a new tenancy...
