Section 21 Notices

Unlike the Section 8 notice, the serving of a Section 21 notice requires no breach of the tenancy agreement by the tenant.

When the notice period expires court proceedings may be issued to gain possession.

In the past there were two options for this notice depending on whether the tenancy was fixed term or of a rolling/ periodic nature Since October 2015 there has only been one type of Section 21 notice and there is a very strict format which must be followed.

A valid Section 21 relies upon there having been:

• An appropriately protected tenancy deposit scheme in place 

• Sufficient information provided to the tenant on the deposit arrangements (usually referred to as ‘prescribed information’)

• A valid Energy Performance Certificate for the property, provided to the tenant at no charge to them 

• An up to date Gas Safety Certificate for the property

• Provision of a copy of the government Issued booklet ‘How to rent: The checklist for renting in England’

• A check that the notice has not been served within the first 4 months of tenancy (landlords are not entitled to serve notices within this initial period)

• An appropriate license for the letting of the property (where required by the relevant local authority)

• No evidence of the landlord being prevented from carrying our retaliatory or revenge eviction

• The required number of smoke alarms/ carbon monoxide monitors within the property (for all tenancies) and the recommended schedule of testing and checking of these prior to the commencement of tenancy (for tenancies starting after October 2015).
