Did you prepare your Form 6A BEFORE 1 June, and served it ON or soon after 1 June 2021?

A few days before the 1st June 2021 in preparation for serving S21 notice, I rang the NRLA regarding Form 6A and the new 4 months’ notice. I downloaded the form as per their advice from the govt web site. Filled it in ready with all relevant paperwork, and I served the notice very early in the morning of 1 June.

BUT ALAS, I now discovered a new Form 6A was published on 1 June 2021! The crucial difference between them is ONE tiny little word on page 3, first line of 2nd paragraph. The new form says “four” months’ notice, while the old form says “six” months’ notice.

So this situation have resulted in landlords / agents who prepared their paperwork BEFORE 1 June and then served on the 1 June to have the wrong date – because the old form before 1 June says 6 months’ notice, but I have filled in the date to leave of 4 months’ calculation. No doubt these cases would be thrown out by the courts in due course.

However, it should not be a problem if you have filled in 6 months’ notice as the leaving date on the old form, or your Form 6A was printed on or after 1 June and you have filled in 4 months.

I am sure there are a few notices served on 1st June, with forms downloaded from before 1st June.

Please take a moment to check if you’ve prepared on Form 6A BEFORE 1 June 2021.
