First AST agreement was signed four and half years ago when tenants moved in. I did not protect deposit. Last AST agreement was signed in May 2015 for 6 months, so from then tenants are on periodic tenancy. I was giving tenants gas safety certificate every year, but did not give EPC and “How to rent guide”. I served S21 in the middle of December with possession date of end of February. Tenants did not paid rent for January. When I try to contact them they did not respond. I asked them to signed agreement to make deduction of deposit for unpaid rent, but I do not have respond from them. They ignored S21 and did not move out at the end of February, but paid rent for one month, so they are in arrears of one month rent at the moment. I want to serve new S21, but first I need to return deposit. I prefer to sent them a cheque, but what is the best way to do that? Is it better to put through letter box myself or send by post. Do I need to send EPC, “how to rent guide” or anything else? Can I serve S21 few days after sending a cheque?
