Section 21 Update
Still confused about how to serve a section 21 come October, as we know many landlords are? Listen to our webinar recorded on the 8th October '18 to get up to date, expert advice on the new rules for S21 and how to complete form 6a. The Deregulation Act 2015 imposed new rules on landlords wanting to gain possession back of their property through the no fault eviction notice. The changes first came into force on the 1st of October 2015 but only applied where the Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) started or was renewed for new fixed terms after that date. The rules will apply retrospectively from the 1st of October 2018 and from then Deregulation Act changes will apply to all ASTs. Understanding the new rules including amended time limits is key to avoiding unnecessary disputes and court delays.
