Ground 3 Holiday Let Notice


England and Wales



Product Code: F046

A landlord may serve this ground 3 notice before a tenancy commences notifying the tenant that the property is normally let as a holiday let and that possession will be required for this purpose at the end of the tenancy. The tenancy must not be for more than 8 months. This notice is not normally needed anymore since assured shorthold tenancies are default (since 28 February 1997). A landlord may serve this notice if they wish though (and need the property back for the purpose of letting as a holiday let.)

Nowadays, a section 21 notice is easier and more effective.
