The Section 21 notice has changed and a new format has to be issued for all tenancies starting on or after the 1st October 2015.
A Section 21 now cannot be served during the first four months of the initial term of the tenancy.
Court proceedings cannot be issued later than 6 months from the date of service of the Section 21.
The change to the legislation also means that a Section 21 notice cannot be served on a tenant if they have not been provided with a copy of the up to date EPC and Gas Safety Certificate and also a copy of the Right To Rent booklet.
All maintenance issues reported to a landlord MUST be responded to in writing within a reasonable time stating what will be done and when. If this is not done and a tenant makes a complaint to the local authority, you will not be able to serve a Section 21.
For all tenancies pre 1st October 2015, the old format Section 21 can still be used and the above new requirements do not apply.
