    Hi,
    6 month AST started 8th of August 2011 can someone please confirm the dates that should be on sec 21 and sec 8 notices and when they should be served?

    I have done the following please tell me if it is correct,

    Section 21,(21(1)(b) was served on 29th November with a date of expiry 7th of Feb 2012

    Section 8 was served today as he is now 2 months in arrears and was dated the 8th of December where the landlord signs should that of been dated 9th of December?

    The grounds are 8,10,and 11.

    Thanks

    section 21 is fine so long as it says "after 7th Feb" as you can't claim ON the 7th Feb as that is still within the fixed term.

    Dates aren't such an issue for section 8 - you just can't commence the court process until after Christmas.

      Section 8 was served today as he is now 2 months in arrears and was dated the 8th of December where the landlord signs should that of been dated 9th of December?

      The important date is when it can be considered served, allow 14 days from then

      The grounds are 8,10,and 11.

      Thanks
      Hope that helps

        Section 21 actualy says Date of expiry of this notice 7th February 2012
        We require you to vacate the property on or before this date.

        This was done by my letting agent if it is wrong when can i issue him with another?

        Thanks

          Since you are still in the fixed term you can issue another one immediately, but it must give a full 2 months notice, because it is a S21(1)(b) it is not bound by the expiry date of the tenancy, so if you send it tomorrow on the 9th, allow two days for delivery and service and make the date After 12th February 2012.

          Ps. Send two copies from different post offices and get proof of postage from each, do not use a 'signed for' service.

            Sack your letting agent.

            Re-serve a new s21(1)(b) and ensure it gives at least 2 months notice.

            Yours is wrong without the word "after", because you are applying to seek possession during the tenancy. There is no absolute need for this new one to have the word 'after' as it will end after the end of the fixed term, however, the same wording is always required on s21(4)(a) notices so it is best to get into the habit of doing so.

            Fortunately, you asked the question at a time when this 'error' will not delay isues by much.

                      Hi there

                      Well done: Hope someone got LOTS of evidence (eg photos) of tenant's departure, all belongings gone. You had questionable legal right to change locks: Until bailiffs "execute" the possession order there is still a tenancy, it's still the tenant's home, the tenant's property. Hopefully enough...

                      Hi.

                      I was looking for some advice in regards to a Section 21 served.

                      A 6-month tenancy was originally granted in September 2015. Upon expiry a new 1-year fixed term tenancy was signed. Is this a new tenancy or a replacement?

                      In September the EPC and GSC was given...

                      Hi everyone,

                      I was wondering if you can help me with my issues with my LL. Apologies for the long post, but I’m going through a very stressful time.

                      My landlord tried to increase my rent “illegally” in Sept/Oct and wanted me to sign a backdated agreement and requested...

                      All very well but realistically you can simply refuse access, change locks, say it's not convenient then. Yes they may have a contractual right but to enforce it they'd need a court order, which would take about as long as evicting you.

                      And which potential purchaser is going to await a...

                      I filed a section 8 notice (correctly i believe) then a possession claim on line. The court hearing was 6th Dec - in stupidity or naivety having had no experience with the law before, i did not realise i had to attend the court hearing for a straightforward case of rental arrears (tenant owes £3000...

                      Id try and get it reinstated, if she didnt show the first time or make arrangments to pay its unlikely she will the second time, I recently had to fly back from the US to attend court on a section 8 and was in and out in 15 minutes - good luck to you.

                      Yeah, i read all 33 pages of the thread... it is difficult though to understand exactly where i stand when it's so personal, rather than theoretical question!

                      They already pointed out which clauses say they can come in. There's one that says the landlord, his agent and any person authorised...

                      UPDATE

                      Ok I flew home to attend court on 4th January, I was in and out in 15 minutes, possession was granted on rent arrears alone and anyone living in the house was given 14 days to leave, the tenant was also ordered to pay all arrears and court fee.

                      This meant they had to...
