This entry is part 10 of 12 in the series It's All Change On 1st October 2015

It’s been very little publicised but in addition to the raft of changes in respect of section 21 notices, there is also a small change being made to the section 8 notice in England.

Changes were made to the section 8 notice in April this year but now under regulation 4 The Assured Shorthold Tenancy Notices and Prescribed Requirements (England) Regulations 2015 the English version of the section 8 is again being amended.

The changed form will only be used where the tenancy was granted on or after 1 October 2015 including a written renewal but not a statutory periodic tenancy arising on or after that date.

For tenancies granted in England before 1 October 2015, the April version of the section 8 notice will apply.

The new October 2015 version will apply to ALL assured shorthold tenancies from 1 October 2018 regardless of when granted in England (assuming no further changes are made).
