  • S21 by hand, Time of day??

    I have recently served a section 21 by hand. On the correct date but in the evening.

    Afterwards i was having a look on various forums and found that some people were saying that the section 21 should be served before 16:30 and some others were saying before 17:00 for the s21 to be valid.

    Is this true?

    If so could anybody provide references?

    Thanks in advance.

    A s.21 notice's validity doesn't depend on whether it is served before 4.30 on a business day unless it's served hours before the 'deadline'. As I said in the other thread, it's best not to serve notices just before such a deadline. Far less risky to add in a few extra days to the notice period - a s.21 notice doesn't need to give *exactly* two months, that's just the absolute minimum notice period.

    The rules of deemed service may be found in the Civil Procedure Rules, Part 6.

    http://www.justice.gov.uk/guidance/c...6.htm#IDAWP2HC

    If a document is served before 16:30 on a business day, it's deemed served that same day.

    (Having said that, AFAIK there's no authority which says that CPR applies to the realm of notices served outside the context of a civil claim, nevertheless it's a reasonable indicator of when a document may be deemed to have been served, in the absence of anything else).

      • Freeholder Scaffolding Over My Flat
        Jcg76
        I have a leasehold studio flat with a garden in London that I rent out to tenants.
        Recently, the freeholder gave me three days notice that he was extending part of the building my flat is joined to and he would need to put scaffolding on my flat roof and in my garden. I immediately objected saying...

        Thanks for the above info, especially the 20-30% info, I wanted to get an idea of the standard/reasonable amount.
        He does have permission, but we were not informed, although our lease stipulates that we cannot object to any of his building works. SO not a lot I can do about that.
        Can anyone...

      • Three guarantors = three guarantees of deed or just one?
        aciduzzo
        I will have three guarantors as there are three (student) tenants. The agency has sent me a guarantee-of-deed sample, but i'm not sure whether i should send a separate one to all guarantors, or just have one listing all guarantors. What do others on here do?

        I've used landlordreferencing.co.uk for the referencing and RGI. They seem to think it's standard to ask the guarantors to guarantee the full amount. They weren't even sure whether they could provide RGI if the guarantors are only liable for 1/3 rent. So i have asked them to check with the underwriter...

      • Burglary Damage - Who Pays?
        Pb21
        Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

        Hi, Guys, I have posted a few threads on this forum now and although the section 21 notice is probably invalid I don't want to let the landlord know that yet.
        I'm after help with writing my landlord a letter. He wants us out on the 31/07/17 and keeps asking me how I intend to leave the keys for...

        I hear you Wright76 we're stressed out as well. We have 3 kids all with additional needs so don't want any court action and definitely not bailiffs. My landlord doesn't understand why I'm being picky, with the needs my kids have they all need separate rooms. I haven't told the landlord this as it's...

        Thanks for your reply jpkeates, although just so I am clear and for the avoidance of doubt is your statement that as there has been damage while we were responsible for the property we are, consequently, responsible for the damage, your opinion or a fact?
