Hello. I have a tenant who signed a 12 month AST in November 2013. After that I allowed the tenancy to run on. I now wish to repossess the property on a no fault basis and am not sure which version of the Section 21 i should use. The AST was the RLA Version 08-2010 and ran originally for 12 months. After that is says it becomes a 'monthly contractual tenancy'.

I have never actively served this tenant with a Section 21 notice but wonder if something in the tenancy agreement assumes this and that I can therefore serve Section 21 (1) rather than Section 21 (4)?

Your advice would be very much appreciated.
Thank you
