  • Please help me date Section 21

    I need to create a section 21 notice for my tenants. No problems with them I just want the place back, so two months is fine.

    They have an AST for which the 12 month period ended 4th Feb 08.

    I am assuming I have missed it for this month and will have to set the Section 21 so that vacant possession is required 'after' 4th May, is this correct?

    Thanks

    You don't have to specify the date, merely to state you require the premises back at the end of a rental period two months from the date of service - that way you won't make the mistake of getting the date wrong. But, yes to answer the question, you can't make the Notice effective any sooner than "after 3 May"
    The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

      Thanks very much, I didn't know that.

      So, to be completely sure - for a 12 month agreement dated 5th February 2007, where the end of the term is 4th February 2008, the date I need to put on is 'after 3rd May 2008' ??

      Thanks again

        Sorry it's the 4th May - I didn't read your post correctly.

          • what is current requirements for smoke alarm?
            daxu
            Hi,
            I have a one bed flat that is let out at the moment. I asked an electrician to change the fusebox to a consumer unit and asked him for a cost of changing my battery smoke alarm to a main conntected one.

            What he told me is that I need two alarms, one smoke alarm and one heat alarm...

            The electrician is quoting the wrong requirements, as per Mr Shed above.

            You need a Carbon Monoxide/Smoke detector unless there's an open fire.
            Heat detectors are a requirement in a kitchen in an HMO.

            You need to test the alarm on the first day of the tenancy and agree...

            This is an interesting one, got me into a spin.
            Tenants signed AST but decided to leave after 6 months and 3 days (problem with moving) using the break clause in the AST. I protected the deposit using DPS (Insured) and returned the deposit minus deductions when the moved out.
            I served the...

            You don't mention PI so should we assume you can't prove you served it?...

            I don't think the solicitor is chancing their arm or that the allegation is false.
            The tenant has identified that you didn't give them the prescribed information and the solicitor is acting on that.

            The penalty is likely to be on the low side (1 x the deposit perhaps - even though...

            What a load of rubbish this sparky is spinning to you!!

            A single battery operated smoke alarm on a single floor is absolutely fine.

            To be fair, allowing DPS to send the email is even worse, as this doesnt help you prove that they received it.

            In fairness it doesnt sound like you did in fact give them the prescribed information...

            Thanks Guys for your immediate response, i will write and will attach the confirmation email from the DPS to the solicitor.
            @AndrewDod I did not send them email, DPS did, i also asked them to post the confirmation to tenants but they said due to DPA, tenants needs to request that!
            Is there...

            I've just posted something on GDPR and then wondered whether it had been discussed on here before - a quick search implies its never been mentioned.

            I thought I would raise a topic to discuss it and the implications on landlords.In effect this is a replacement of the Data Protection Act...

            Depends on the storage provider. The other problem is though that in a disaster recovery position, they usually fail this to somewhere else, out of EU - which puts you in breach
