    Using form N215 Certificate of Service

    All very straightforward, but at the bottom where a signature is required, the only options are the claimant or the defendant or their solicitor or litigation friend. What can a landlord's agent do about signing this when the landlord is out of the country? Can they sign it 'pp' on the landlord's behalf? The same question applies to completing court papers that require the landlord's signature too!

    Hi,

    Did you find the answer regarding signing the N215 form if you are a Letting agent, considering the options provided?

      Form N215- Certificate of Service- what details to show?

      Background
      A S21 notice was hand delivered to the Let property and posted by the Letting Agent.

      N215 Form
      The options and text I need to complete are as follows, - please correct / advise:

      1. 'on whom did you serve' – enter the tenants name

      2. 'by delivering to or leaving at a permitted place' - tick this box

      3. 'give address where service effected' - enter address of Let property

      4. Being the - 'defendant’s' - tick this box

      5. 'usual residence' - tick this box

      6. Date of service - the next business day, in my case Thursday xxth. Notice was delivered on Wednesday.


      7. Finally signing the form - The Letting agent served the s21 notice - but the only options immediately under the signature box are
      '(Claimant) (Defendant)('s solicitor)('s friend)' – not sure how this should be completed.

        Get LA to write Claimants agent and cross through the rest.

              by Handy21
              Hi guys this might have already been covered before but I’m currently purchasing a 3 bed house and near completion our solicitor has managed to find out they don’t have building regs for the 3rd bedroom (loft conversion). My question is can I let this as a 3 bedroom or is it legally only a 2 bedroom,...

              In the opening post you said there was 6 month fixed term AST with both your niece and her now-ex-partner named as joint tenants. Now you are saying there was never a tenancy agreement drawn up.

              With the benefit of hindsight it would have been better if you'd had your niece pay money into...

              Good evening all,

              I wonder if I could get some advice on ending an AST tenancy in England.

              Originally a 6 month AST last Sept between my niece and her partner, I foolishly listed both on the AST as joint tenants and didn't list him as a permitted, there was no deposit paid....

              Guess I've been very lucky this time. My niece has informed her partner that she is ending the tenancy and signing up for a new one in her name only and he is ok with it. She did point out that he will no longer be responsible for any more rent or bills when it's totally in her name.

              There may be something on the NRLA website, but I don't know of a standard template.

              To be honest that clause doesn't seem to help you a lot, it stops you using a s13 notice (I'd wrongly assumed that because it said "may" you'd be able to) but doesn't actually help you with an...

              Tenancy start date May 2020 in England. 6 month initial AST.
              My tenancy agreement says
              “The landlord may increase the rent after the first 52 weeks of the tenancy…..”
              Is there a specific form I should use?...

              Thanks jpkeates, I looked at the form 13 but that’s for if you don’t have anything in your tenancy agreement with regard to a rent increase. Is there a pro forma for a rent increase if there is a condition in your TA?

              If the tenancy is now an SPT, and you want to be ever so formal (and impose the increase without any agreement), search for form 13 (which is called something else on the government's tenancy forms page).

              Otherwise, you just need to get the tenant to agree and start paying the new rent...

              by jpkeates
              It is quite likely that the 2 additional months might be seen as a deposit, unless the tenancy agreement is very specific about the initial payment being for months 1, 5 and 6.

              If it is a deposit, you won't be able to use a s21 notice without returning it and the deposit will be unlawful...

              Hi All,

              I have recently had new tenants move in.
              the estate agent did the whole thing and put them in.

              The arrangement with rent payments was this. 6 months AST Tennants pay last 3 months rent in advance and then make 3 monthly payments in advance. Ie start of the month....
