    Section 21 dates

    I have a tenant who I'm serving both section 8 and section 21 notice on.

    His tenancy started on 21st November 2013 and due to expire on 20/05/2014 but I want to get Section 21 in asap.

    Would I be right in using the Section 21 still in tenancy rather than the Periodic one. I rather ask a stupid question then have it thrown out in Court.

    Would the date be 2 months from when I serve or when tenancy is due to finish.

    Many thanks

    You use a Sec 21 based on what the tenancy is when the Sec 21 is served, not what it will be when the Sec 21 expires.
    If I were posting/hand delivering one tomorrow, I would use an expiry date of the 20th July 2014.

      Thank you,

      Just filled in the form off the Landlordzone, there is a date when served, but nowhere else for writing when the expire date is. The form just looks too simple. Also rent paid weekly, I believe tat may alter thigs, but I will use an expire date of 20th July, would I just put this date on the Court form later on.

      Its just that the for says "after the expiry of this 2 months notice, which I will serve on the 12th May.

      Cant afford to get things wrong.



        I use this Sec 21:

        To show date of service, you will have your certificate of posting from the Post Office.

          Thank you thesaint, but thats for Periodic Tenancy, tenant is still in fixed term which ends on the 20th May. I know its only a week or so away from date tenancy goes to periodic but want to serve now as tenant has no end of drug related issues and other tenants are being woken at early hours with dug users banging on his window. Will be delivering by hand as best proof of receipt in the shared house HMO as had previous tenant claim that post was tampered at court and had to start again.




            In that case, I would serve by hand and post, but definitely by post.

              What about getting them to surrender existing tenancy and then signing a new one? Would that work?...

              I’m looking at buying another property to rent out. The one I’m looking at has a tenant in situ. I have seen a copy of the AST and payments to the agents.
              Anyone have any experience of this please ?...

              by asez

              I'm trying to end my tenancy early due to a relationship breakdown with my housemate, hostility, bullying and my items going missing. There's currently four of us on the agreement which I'm trying to leave. I haven't lived there, apart from around 15 days(when the housemate was away)...

              I have a mobile home next to my property. Do I qualify for the rent a room scheme if I rent out the mobile home but the occupant must use the shower and washing facilities in my house i.e. so that the mobile home is not a separate unit of accommodation? There is a provision by the council that it...

              It's almost impossible to reset the tenancy with a new agreement.
              The buyer will inherit the previous tenancy at the same point that they're able to let the property on the new agreement, so any new tenancy is going to be a follow on tenancy.
              So things that need to be done at the very start...

              You're really going to struggle with that not being a tenancy.
              If the tenant can lock the door to exclude you, and they could wash in a sink, that's likely to be a dwelling house.

              I have a basic understanding of regulated tenancy. I'm looking to buy a property with a tenant in situ on a regulated tenancy. In the real world, what are the pros and cons? Is there anyone with any experience?

              How basic is your understanding?

              From your other thread you are seeing a broker about a BTL mortgage. I think you will struggle to secure a BTL mortgage against a property with a Regulated Tenancy in place....
