Product Code: F095 – for update history see tab
If a landlord wants their property back, a notice seeking possession under section 21 Housing Act 1988 must first be served (unless grounds are available for a section 8 notice). The notice must be at least 2 months in length. For all assured shorthold tenancies granted on or after 1 October 2015 in England, a prescribed form must be used. This form covers both fixed term and periodic assured shorthold tenancies. This prescribed form will apply to all tenancies (including those granted before 1 October 2015) from 1 October 2018.
This is the very latest version as published on 29 September 2015 (not the original one which contained errors).
There are occasions when a section 21 notice may not be served for example if a HMO license is required but not obtained or applied for , or, if a deposit has been taken but not protected or prescribed information given. Therefore care needs to be given before service.
