    I want to sell the house I'm renting

    I'm wanting to sell the house that I rent out. My tenant is 3 months into the six month ast agreement. Can I put the Notice to Quit in a letter or do I have to go down the Section 21 route?

    You can sell today with tenant still there. New owner becomes her landlord.

    NTQ from you will have no legal effect.

    s21 cannot be issued until 4 months into fixed term.

    Was deposit protected & PI served with 30 days of payment? Have "How to rent" booklet, GSC & EPC been served on tenant (served, not you happen to have them somewhere..)

    If no to any then any s21 would be invalid.

    Nothing to stop you agreeing an early surrender with tenant: Maybe money being involved.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      You can't serve notice before the first four months of the AST. Assuming all your paper work to do with the deposit protection is correct, serve notice in the new year.

        Call me annoying if you like,

        But your title should have read

        I want to sell the house I'm Letting.


        I am renting a house, I pay the rent, but
        I cannot sell the house I'm renting. ( it's not mine to sell )

        Two words to try not to confuse / flip, are Renting and Letting.
        It saves confusion on here.

            When landlord has left land registry details with his address as the property. Tenants set up false ID, sell or remortgage the place, loads of lovely money....

            (Think it has happened....)

              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...

              Almost everything is telling you to sell them - far away, no experience, higher rate taxpayer, current environment

              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...

              Totally agree, the classic - still the best. They sound like a nightmare and i would be looking to get rid as soon as i could whilst we still have S21, removing kitchen cupboards !!! In a 2 bed flat...... why the hell would you remove part of a fitted kitchen, what are you going to do with the space....
