    Section 21 4 a date

    Hi All
    1/ property in uk
    2/original AST sole tenant
    3/date signed 24/06/2012
    4/6 month initial agreement
    5/payment paid on 25th of each month
    6/Deposit was put in protection scheme at the beginning and copy sent to tenant.

    How do i go about ending this tenancy as i wish to move back into the premises as it was my original dwelling, not sure what forms i should use.

    I Dont know what section 8 of my agreement says" notice is hereby given that possession might be recovered under ground 1 schedule 2 of the housing act 1988 if applicable"

    Before the landlord can end this tenancy he shall serve notice on tenant in accordance with the provisions of housing act, such notice shall be sufficiently served if accordance with section 196 of the law of property act 1925

    Also first month rent was waived for repairs to be done which haven`t been done, argued the fact for 3 years with tenant but i was in no place to argue in case i lost tenant. Do i bring that up now or just serve certain papers

    many many thanks for any help offered

    Keep it simple and research Section 21. No fault, no reason, guaranteed eviction... assuming all your admin. is good, as stated.

        Send the S21 with proof of posting and dated to expire in 2 months 3 days to allow for posting. If you like you can include a note to say no hard feelings but I want to move back in. It might help. It might help even more if you feel able to add 'and happy to give you a good reference'.

          You serve s21: TODAY if possible... Go round with witness, shove through letter box.


          When did tenancy start?? Was deposit protected & PI served with 30 days of payment?

              Prescribed information: As you don;t know what it is assume it wasn;t handled correctly, serve it then serve s21 day after.

              Information your landlord must give you

              Your landlord must provide you with certain information about the protection of your deposit. This is called prescribed information.

              Your landlord must inform you in writing about:

              details of the tenancy deposit scheme used
              how to get your deposit back when you leave
              what to do if there is a dispute about its return
              your landlord's name, address and contact details or the contact details of the letting agent that set up your tenancy
              You must also be given a copy of a deposit protection certificate, signed by the landlord.

              In some cases you are also provided with a repayment ID number. This is given to you by the organisation that runs the scheme, not the landlord. Keep this safe. You will need it to get your deposit back when you leave.

                  You only have to send it to the tenant.
                  It's up to you if you want to keep the guarantor up to speed, but you don't have to - unless the tenancy agreement or guarantor agreement says that you will.
                  When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
                  Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

                      Section 21 4 a date

                      Hi All

                      Just need clarification of right date to put on section 21

                      Tenancy started on AST 6months on 24/06/2012 and has been rolling ever since, What is the date i put on form to leave by ?

                      Also ive downloaded form from landlordzone do i send all 6 pages ?

                      I am sending section 21 this week so i am giving just over 2 months notice but not sure of actual date needed as tenancy form signed 24/06/2012, 6 month tenancy started with 1st months rent on 25/06/2012

                      Many thanks

                        The section 21 4a must give two months notice and end AFTER the last day of the tenancy period. So if the tenancy started on the 24th the last day will be the 23rd, the section 21 should end AFTER the 23rd. I would also advice you to put in a saving clause to ensure no errors. By the way the rent payment date should be the 24th not the 25th. However for the purposes of the section 21 your tenancy period runs from the 24th to the 23rd.
                        Any advice I give is my opinion and experience, I am as you also learning.

                          thanks for your reply sunnyp

                          sorry, the AST was signed on 24/06/2012 but term commenced for 6 months from 25/06/2012 so do i date 24th of the month?

                          What do you mean a saving clause?
                          sorry for not understanding

                            The tenancy agreement will say something like " a six month term commencing 25/06/2012 until 24/12/2012" and it's the 24th that is the end of the rental period each month.
                            When it was signed doesn't matter.

                                Rachel Reeves R4 this am told the interviewer that Labour (when in power) would raise money by taxing those with BTL property much more than at present, she opined it was wrong that “they” were “getting away with it”. No challenge from BBC or fact check as to present tax. You are warned.

                                The limited company system has been abused for too long by people trying to save on tax by claiming they are a company.

                                I thought the main issue of taking a tenant on UC is not so much the fact they are receiving benefits, but the fact that its a pain in the proverbial to evict as the council tell them to sot tight until forced out by bailiffs....

                                Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

                                I think you need to ask whether he/she is responsible for the things you say, and whether these warrant immediate attention as you think they do:

When he took over he immediately increased the rent by 25%, annoying but perfectly within his rights. The main issue is maintainance and repairs. I cant report...
