    Section 21 Dates for 6 Month Fix Term contract

    I am hoping someone can advise me as I am confused. I let my property out on a six month contract, which started on 31st October 2011 and expired on 30th April 2012.

    I issued a Section 21 Notice on 4th April 2012, giving two months notice, which expires on 6th June 2012. I was told that the expiry date was wrong by a friend and was told that it should have been 30th June 2012 instead.

    Please can someone advise me if I am right or wrong with the date. Thanks

    Seems fine. You say you 'issued' it on 4th April - the date 'served' is what matters, when did you serve it? How did you serve it? Does the AST say you can use that method of service?

    Obvious questions - was there a deposit?
    Was it protected in a governemnt approved scheme? what date?
    Did you give the tenant the full info (called prescribed information) about how they recover their deposit nd the schemes terms and conditions?

      Thanks for your quick response, the section 21 notice was served on 4th April 2012 by a friend, who hand delivered it through the letter box. I have a certificate of service with his signature.

      The deposit has been protected in one of the government deposit scheme and the certificate was emailed and delivered by post to him. The 'information for Tenants' was given to him.

      Thanks

        Was it protected before 4th April 2012?
        Does your AST allow the service of information by email?
        Can you prove you did give the information if he disputes it?

          Much as I have sympathy for your clients and would like to support your work, I like jpkeates, would be unlikely to accept this kind of tenant. There is just too much risk for a private LL.

          I did once rent a property to a similar organisation and the problem was not the tenant but her boyfriend...

          Hello,

          I work for a homeless charity and I am hoping you don't mind me bending your ear and gaining some landlord insight on a model we are imminently implementing for some of our service users.

          Traditional housing models within the homeless sector require the service user...

          Hope you held on to the deposit

          Our property was let part furnished however upon leaving the Ex. tenant took it upon himself to relieve us of the white goods and wooden blinds.

          The dishwasher, washing machine, 2 x fridge freezers and wooden blinds throughout were actually ones purchased when the property was our main...

          I posted elsewhere on here and feedback was a mix of its not worth it as nothing will happen (plus police will treat as a tenancy issue) and its worth doing to get a crime number.

          Not going to claim on insurance given excess etc. The fridge freezers value second hand / age considered probably...

          A 15 year old washing machine has almost zero value (and will have less when you move out).
          The landlord can only legitimately claim for their loss if you bin it.

          A mid range washing machine is about £350 (and they haven't changed much in price recently), and imagining one would...

          We've recently rented a house that from the very start seemed badly taken care of - there were various problems like a mouldy washing machine/curtains, broken curtain rails, etc. When we arrived to meet the inventory clerk, we signed a 2-page document of handwritten inventory notes (we broadly agreed...

          Trust you've reported the thefts to police

          This is very helpful, MdeB, thank you. I will try to relax about the inventory now. In regards to the mould - the landlord has a letter from the curtain cleaning company stating that the mould has been "killed" during the cleaning. I actually spoke with the curtain cleaner when he was here...

          The process seems to have changed recently.
          The landlord claims from the deposit and that claim should have a summary of what they are claiming and why.
          You dispute that and then you both have one chance to explain your side of the story.
          But you do that with only access to what the...
