A complete guide to section 21 compliance

18 Aug 2018

What is a section 21 notice?

In a nutshell, a section 21 notice is used by landlords to evict tenants without having to give a reason for eviction. The notice allows landlords to regain possession of their property but it can only be served for a shorthold tenancy. Find out about shorthold tenancies in this article from gov.uk

When can they be served?

Section 21 notices can be served once a tenancy has come to an end or you can use a break clause to end the tenancy before it’s completion. However, a valid section 21 notice can not be given in the first six month of tenancy and the break clause must be included in the tenancy agreement.

How do you serve a section 21 notice?

You need to contact the tenant by the means specified in your tenancy agreement, this is usually by giving it in writing to the tenant directly or pushing it through the door of the property. If you’re not sure what needs to go in this letter, please speak to the Ultra Lets team and we can advise.

What do landlords need to have done to be able to serve a section 21 notice?
