    What notice is required?

    Hi,
    I am renting a property to tenants whose 6 month AST expires in about 5 weeks time.
    I have decided to sell the property. What notice do I need to give the tenants?
    Thanks.

    Serve Notice under s.21(1)(b) of Housing Act 1988.
    Serve it BEFORE fixed term expiry date, if possible.
    Notice period should be not less than two months from service (even though that two months will extend past term expiry date).

      I am not suggesting it is the landlord's fault. I am just saying that, in some cases, if a tenant feels secure he is more likely to take care of a place....

      Just had tenants move out of a property after 2 years. Always paid on time, perfectly pleasant young family who have now bought their own home BUT:

      House was grimy - looks like they didn't clean properly in 2 years rather than anything overtly unpleasant
      Garden was left in a mess...

      That is because you have to do things properly for S21 to be valid.

      Do everything properly and the S21 is valid.
      Get one thing wrong and it is invalid. There are many things to get right....

      We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

      Tenant moved in...

      The requirement comes from the tenancy terms. There are various reasons why a contract term may be void or unenforceable. They include: illegal; impossible; contrary to public policy; statute forbids them to be imposed; unfair. A requirement to keep a dwelling clean and leave it it clean is none of...

      I use a Letting Agent. Recently the tenants vacated, prior to the tenants leaving when the letting agent did an inspection they advised the tenants that the property would need cleaning before they vacated. The tenants have now left, the place does need a good clean, the Letting Agents have said that...

      Lawcruncher,

      Why does a tenant need to leave the property in a reasonable state of cleanliness if the property wasn't in a reasonable state of cleanliness at the start of the tenancy? Where does the requirement come from? The deposit protection schemes don't appear to take that approach...
