Landlord issued a s21 last week

He gave me the documents last week needed for the s21 to be valid.  Including gas certificates I've never seen before. I moved in November 2019. These gas certificates are December 2018 November 2019 just before I moved in. The next gas check was done august 2022. I called up the gas registry and they told me gas man who done the gas check 2018 and 2019 was not registered! This same man came round when I could smell gas In 2020 who said everything was fine but then the gas check in 2022 came back at risk!!

Does this help me at all? Is the s21 valid

Thank you


If the gas safety certificates aren't valid, then the section 21 notice isn't valid either.
If the certificate for November 2019 isn't valid, the landlord might not be able to serve a section 21 notice at all.
