Can a new Section 21 be served before the 8 month expiry of previous notice?

24 Feb 2022 | 1 comment

I have some problem tenants who are claiming to know nothing about their Section 21, despite our discussing it many times shortly after receipt. It was served in September 2021 so has, I believe, 8 months to be acted upon. For the avoidance of doubt, am I able to issue/hand deliver a new Section 21? I wouldn’t want to cost the landlord £350 in fees for the original to be thrown out.

    You could serve a new section 21, which is now at least two months’ notice.

    However, if you have any proof of service, such as proof of postage from the post office, that proof should be enough. Also, if you have any record of the discussions you had after receiving it, such as emails, that would likely be fine.
