Landlords sometimes let their properties to companies, who then accommodate employees in these properties. If, however, as occasionally happens, the company fails to pay the rent, you may want possession as a result. Even though it is a ‘company let’ rather than an assured shorthold tenancy, you cannot enter and change the locks – this would still be a criminal offence under the Protection from Eviction Act 1977. With a company let, you cannot serve a Section 21 notice: if the fixed term has ended, you will need to get a court order for possession. This is initiated by serving a ‘notice to quit’. The notice period must not be less than 28 days and should end on the last day of a period of the tenancy. You can claim rent arrears in the possession claim, but must not include this on the notice to quit.
