  • New s21 for April 2012 hearing?

    Good evening

    I've tried to evict a tenant.

    But i didnt have proof of serving the s21.

    There's a hearing in April 2012 (long delays nowadays).

    Could I serve a new S21 expiring in over 2 months, with proof of receipt and use this one at the hearing?

    Or will the judge insist that a new eviction should have started, as on the n5b form, we have the old s21 dates on there.

    Thanks.

    You have to give 2 months notice before you can commence court proceedings. An s21 issued now can not be served 2 months before a case thats already started!

    I would serve a new s21 in case this hearing fails, but you may be able to submit a statement as proof of service - It has worked in the past but no guarantees.

    In the MyTown County Court -- Claim Number MT0982011

    Claimant: Mr E Green (landlord)
    Defendant: Mr N Otwanted (tenant)

    I hereby declare that the section 21 notice attached was served by myself on xx/xx/2011.

    Statement of Truth

    I believed that the facts stated in this document are true

    Signed______________________________ Claimant

      Thank you snorkez

      Can i wait for that hearing in April

      And start a new eviction after the new section 21 expires

      So in affect have two evictions running at the same address for the same person? (just in case the April hearing goes against me)

      Thanks

        You don't need proof of receipt, you need proof of service.

        You won't be able to use new paperwork with an old claim, but Snorkerz has given you advice as to what to do at the current hearing.
        Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

          Hi,
          Can a LL issue a valid NTQ during the six-month fixed term of an AST agreement?
          (A residential let in England.)

          Except that the repossession order doesn't actually end the tenancy either, it simply says that it must end.
          Then, either the tenant has to surrender the property to comply with the order or the order has to be executed by bailiifs.
          Which actually ends the tenancy.

          So the court...

          I'm pretty unlikely to agree with anything you write, as a matter of general principle; and certainly, see no value in debating why. I wish you a good afternoon....

          Let's try to construct that piece of legislation.

          (1) & (2) can stand on its own. There's no inconsistence to prevent accepting that a tenant leaving after receiving a s21 before/without court is leaving "as a result of the service of a notice". The bit some have difficuities...

          The legislation the says that also says that it must happen at a hearing that is impossible.

          It has to happen at a repossession hearing when the tenancy has ended as a "result" of a s21 (and ended during a tenancy period to require a rebate).

          The only possible scenario...

          It's perfectly simple. Either you accept the tenancy ended as a result of the section 21 or don't.

          By taking the keys back and control of the property you are somehow accepting the surrender. Now, if you have no written notice from the tenant or deed of surrender your most definitely accepting...

          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.
