Valid Section 21?
I posted a message a short while agao but it does not seem to have been posted.
Anyway, a landlord has asked us for help with a problem tenancy. He has served a 2 month notice but he suspects they will not leave.
The notice he served may not qualify as a Section 21. I have copied the text as follows:
Two Month Notice to Vacate
Tenant's Names: xxxxx
Address of Property:xxxx
This notice is to inform you that your tenancy will be terminated in 2 months from the date of service for this notice.
You are required to vacate the premises and remove all your possessions from the premises by this date: 4/12/2011. All keys to the premises are to be returned upon your move out.
Your rent and any relevant bills for the premises will be payable until the termination date.
PROOF OF SERVICE
I, the undersigned, being at least 18 years of age, declare under penalty of perjury that I served the above notice, of which this is a true copy, on the following tenant(s) in possession in the manner(s) indicated below:
[ ] On __________, I handed the notice to the tenant(s) personally.
[ ] On __________, after attempting personal service, I handed the notice to a person of suitable age and discretion at the residence/business of the tenant(s), AND I deposited a true copy in the [Name of Your Postal Service], in a sealed envelope with postage fully prepaid, addressed to the tenant(s) at his/her/their place of residence.
[ ] On 4/10/11, after attempting service in both manners described above I placed the notice in a conspicuous place at the residence of the tenant(s) AND I deposited a true copy in the royal mail in a sealed envelop with postage fully prepaid, addressed to the tenant(s) at his/her/their place of residence.
Is the notice valid or will he need to serve a section 21. He delivered the notice in the letterbox on the date of the notice.
