Serving notice on a Limited company on a non housing act t/a

7 Sep 2017 | 3 comments

Tenants are a Ltd company on a non housing act tenancy agreement. It started 27th November 2015 and is now periodic. No issues as such landlord just wants possession. Is the process the same as usual – serve a Section 21?

    No, notice to quit is needed. You should check the terms of tenancy for any length of notice required (for example sometimes it will say 3 months) but if it remains silent, it will be the same length as a rental period (so if rent monthly, a months notice is needed). The notice expiry should be rounded up to the next day before the rent is due after one month (assuming a months notice).

    E.g. if rent is payable on 20th of every month and notice being served today (7th), the expiry would be 19th October.

      Thank you. And then is gaining the possession order, times scales the same as a residential let?

      Thank you

    Yes, once the notice has expired, possession is very similar. Accelerated possession is not available so it’s a similar procedure to the section 8 notice (but online is not available).
