    Tell us:
    a. is it residential or commercial;
    b. is it in England/Wales or elsewhere;
    c. when did tenancy start;
    d. was it for a fixed-term (if so, how long);
    e. if fixed term has ended;
    f. what Notices have already been served; and
    g. rent position- arrears (how much & for how long) or up-to-date?

        Of course not because a s21 notice is a private notice so nobody will know how many are issued in the country each day, and this would only change if all s21 notices would need to be centrally lodged (I can’t see that happen and can’t see a good reason for it either).

        When a new tenant moves into a property, I get them to sign a section 21 so that if whatever reason things don’t work out, the necessary paperwork is already in place.
        I’ve never had a need to exercise this yet, but would it work?...

        The characteristics of the people you wish to home would be obvious red flags to most PRS landlords.
        I don't think you would be able to persuade me to risk the value of my property when the option to remove a problem tenant is, essentially, unavailable.

        I have only thought about this...

        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...

        I thought the whole point is that you don’t need to go to court to remove non-tenants? You simply get some burly friends and perform re-entry yourself?

        Hi all,

        I am asking a prospective tenant to provide a guarantor and was wondering how the deed should be dated with regards to the term of the tenancy. The tenancy will be a 6 month assured shorthold agreement but I would want the guarantor to continue to act for the duration of the periodic...

        How good are you at citing authorities and giving arguments on how your DIY form is "substantially to the same effect" to the prescribed form?

        Just use the form as prescribed.

        by doorstop
        Hello all

        I've just been looking at a S21 validity checking flowchart from a well known Housing Law blog. It suggests that unless the S21 looks "exactly like the Form 6A", then it is invalid.

        However, the .gov website states that "In England, use form 6a if your...

        A problem would probably arise when the "special tenant" served notice and the actual occupants didn't move out.
        When the landlord goes to court to remove the trespassers, there's a reasonable chance that the court would choose to treat the "special tenant" as the sham it ...
