    Different landlord names on Section 21 and tenancy agreement - Both own the property

    Does this invalidate the section 21 notice?

  • #2
    Yes, unless the tenant has been advised that the landlord has changed from "Mr A Bloggs" to "Mr A Bloggs & Ms B Jones" - it must be the landlords name as the only person who can evict is the landlord.

      When you say landlord - is the estate agent the landlord or just acting for the landlord? Can an estate agent issue a S21 with only their name on it or must it say something like "on behalf of the landlord...".

        It seems like there are joint owners, and one name is on the tenancy agreement, and the other is on the Sec 21.

        The OP needs to give a lot more information than the one line sentence in the opening paragraph
        Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

          Well, the legislation says 'the landlord' must give notice.

          I take this to mean that "Lettem and Weep Ltd" can not say "we require possession", but as agents for the landlord, they may be able to say "the landlord requires possession" (as opposed to "Mr Bloggs requires possession").

            If we assume that the property is jointly owned by 2 persons acting as joint LLs, this would appear to apply (from another thread)

            http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1988/50/section/21

            (a)that the landlord or, in the case of joint landlords, at least one of them has given to the tenant a notice [F4in writing] stating that, after a date specified in the notice, being the last day of a period of the tenancy and not earlier than two months after the date the notice was given, possession of the dwelling-house is required by virtue of this section;

            It is best that any Notice includes the identical T/LL details that appear in the Tenancy Agreement IMO

              They can not be joint landlords because only one of them is mentioned on the tenancy agreement.

                Because the poor old OP of THIS THREAD has seen it derailed by a long but nevertheless valid debate/argument/discussion about the interpretation of law, I've started a new thread because the discussion has raised some questions I'd like answers to.

                well I kind of hoped that the OP would get their thread back if it was rerouted here but I didn't realise that this really only arises where there is disagreement. Plus the debate over there shows no sign of slowing down despite the OP's plea (in post #39 that he's now confused!).

                okay... so if I'd asked them to leave in the middle of the period, then I'd have to refund but my example had them leaving at the end so no refund due....

              • Can Mrs T change locks?
                Berlingogirl
                Mr and Mrs T are splitting up. Mrs T is looking for a new place before giving notice to LL. Mrs T is going to give notice to LL then move immediately to new place. Mr T has mental health issues and verbally intimidates and bullies Mrs T so she needs to get out before he can start on her.

                ...

                Tenancies don't change just because someone (usually LL) changes the locks.
                Mrs T needs specialist advice, as does LL if Mrs T explains her dilemma to him.

                LL could offer Mr T a sole Tenancy after expiry of Mrs T's Notice.

                My example was hypothetical. Both parties have "plans/wishes" and, feelings aside, there are plenty of reasonable situations where a LL might want to ask a decent T to leave their home.

                We have two properties where we might have to do this in the next few years. One involves co-ownership...

                wilfred
                If you get tenants from the council waiting list, and the council pay the monthly rent direct to the LL, when their 12 month tenancy comes to an end, do the council still advise them to remain if the tenant has nowhere else to stay? It would be all the same if the LL wanted to sell the property asa...

                Thanks for clarifying that for me artfullodger, and I didn't know they were homeless people the council asks LLs to house for 12 months.

                Artful - It's not that's going to be changing the locks - It's Mrs T.

                I'm not the landlord in this instance. Sorry, I should have made that clear.

                Mrs T is concerned that if Mr T remains in the property after the notice period ends she will be responsible for all the ££££...
