Section 21 Notices (eLearning)

When a landlord requires possession of their property the first and most critical step is to serve the tenant with notice. A Section 21 Housing Act 1988 notice is a 'no fault' way of obtaining possession from a shorthold tenant. However recent changes in legislation have made the service of this notice far more complex, with an increasing number of regulations that landlords must comply with to ensure the notice is valid. In addition, there are now several different rules depending on when the tenancy commenced and whether the property is in England or Wales. It is vital that the Section 21 is completed and served in the correct way as failure to do so will lead to the process having to start again, causing further delays in gaining possession.


This interactive eLearning course is designed to assist landlords in understanding which Section 21 they need to serve and how to successfully complete and serve the notice.
