Question

Applying to Court for Possession — Accelerated Procedure (England) | Landlord Wants Tenant to Leave (England)

Section 21 in name of previous owner

8 Jul 2016 | 1 comment

We have a property where the previous agent served a S21 on a tenant but the property was then sold on but the agent didn’t officially (in writing) inform the tenant of the new owners name and address. How does this effect the validity of the S21 which is also in the name of the previous owner.

    As long as you now serve a [section 48 notice]{http://www.landlordsguild.com/product/section-48-notice-landlord-name-and-address/) which will correct the position and give the name and address of the new landlord, it shouldn’t affect the notice in any way. The new landlord can use the notice.

    The penalty in respect of failing to serve a section 48 is that no rent is payable until it has been done. There is no penalty relating to the section 21 notice itself.
