In the Section 21(4)(a) notice, which is the notice served during a periodic tenancy (after the fixed term has ended), the date of expiry must be “the last day of a period of the tenancy” [section 21(4)(b) Housing Act 1988].
This is one of the most common reasons a notice is found to be invalid, where a landlord puts the wrong date in the notice.
