If a tenancy for 12 months commenced in April 1996 is it OK for a 21 or section 8?

    A section 8 will be fine but service of a section 21 depends on whether the formalities of section 20 were complied with, which was the notice required before the agreement notifying the tenant that the tenancy was to be assured shorthold and not assured. The requirement for the section 20 notice was removed in 1997.

    Yes, if you want to serve section 21. Otherwise section 8 can be served.
