Section 21 Notice

Using a section 21 notice which in practice results in a minimum notice period of 2 months. There is no minimum length for which an assured shorthold tenancy may be granted and a section 21 notice can be served at any time. However, when court proceedings are based on the section 21 notice the court cannot order the tenant to give up possession earlier than six months from the beginning of the tenancy. Where one assured shorthold tenancy follows another, the tenant is protected for only 6 months from the beginning of the first tenancy under which the premises were occupied. A section 21 notice may not be issued unless the tenancy deposit registration requirements were met within 30 days of the deposit payment.

Serving an eviction notice in the correct format

When you’re serving an eviction notice, it’s important that the names of the parties and the address on the notice to terminate should match those in the tenancy agreement.

  • It is important, even if some tenants have moved out, they should still be named on the notice if they were named on the most recent tenancy agreement.
  • If the tenant is renting a room in a shared house, you need to specify the room (e.g. ‘room 1’) rented by the tenant, as well as the property address.

Hand Delivering Serving an eviction notice

Whenever it’s possible, you should serve an eviction notice to your tenant either by handing the notice to the tenant personally or by leaving the notice at the property, normally by inserting it through the letterbox of the property in an envelope addressed to the tenant(s).

  • If you are leaving it for the tenant at the property it  must be placed in a private box or under the door of the property.
  • If in doubt tape it to the door covering the keyhole and a photograph taken of it.
  • In most cases services eviction noticed by hand

Serving an eviction notice by post

If you’re unable to serve an eviction notice personally, the notice provides for you to send it by post.

  • When using the post to serve the eviction notice get evidence of the service by getting a proof of postage.
  • If you do not trust the tenant to sign and return the copy notice to you to prove service, do not post the notice as you can not prove that it was delivered. Even sending by recorded delivery tenants may refuse to accept and sign delivery.

Serving notice on a difficult tenant

If terminating a tenancy of a difficult tenant, you should serve a notice by hand.

  • Either yourself or arrange for someone else to serve it for you.
  • If you think that the tenant may lie make sure there is an independent witness present.
