Section 21 Notice to Quit
Our Section 21 Notice to Quit includes two versions of the Notice. The Section 21(a) version is for use when you have a tenant that is subject to a fixed tenancy agreement and the expiry date of the tenancy has not yet passed. The Section 21(b) notice is for use when you are dealing with a tenant that is subject to a periodic tenancy. This can be either a general periodic tenancy or a tenancy agreement where the expiry date has passed but you have allowed the tenant to remain in occupation of the property. The latter situation causes the tenancy agreement to automatically become a periodic tenancy agreement.
Tenancy laws are in place to protect both the landlord and the tenant. When the tenant or landlord wishes to end the agreement there are steps that must be followed to ensure that this is done legally. A Section 21 Notice to Quit is one document you can use to end a tenancy agreement.
Section 21 is a clause under the Housing Act of 1998 that states that the landlord can give a notice to quit to the tenant in order to regain possession of a property. Typically the document is issued at the end of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. The landlord must provide a notice to quit the agreement. Failure to provide the Section 21 Notice would breach the tenant's rights. When using the Section 21 Notice, the landlord does not have to give a reason to end the agreement.
The landlord has the right to gain possession at the end of the tenancy as long as the legal procedure is followed correctly. In 1996 ,an addendum to Section 21 was added to state that a written document hasto be served, rendering any verbal communication to terminate a tenancy invalid.
