Hi

I need to issue a section 21 notice to my tenants. They moved in on 14th May 2015. Contract was for 12 months initially and just carried on since then.  When can I give them this? Am I correct if I give it on 15th January, then it would give them 2 months notice so out by 15th March?

Thanks

You can give it to them at any time you like... the key is that it needs to give them at least 2 months notice... and you should end it on a rent boundary day. The longer you give them the better, you'd think? So you don't need to wait until mid-January...

Serving it doesn't mean they'll be out, though. They could choose to stay.

Thanks. 2 months is ok. Just I don't want to get the boundary dates wrong. Are the dates above ok then? Contract is for 14th so if I give it 15th of the month, that should be ok won't it?

They just messing about with Me & it's been carrying on for a while. At least this might give them the message I seriously want them out.

Thanks

Deliver it by hand, don't include anything else in the envelope and photograph the delivery.. other enclosures can invalidate the s21 and smart arse tenants can deny receiptif you don't have proof of delivery.. I found this out the hard way..
