Hello,

I was issued a section 21, back on 2nd October 2020 and my fixed term tenancy wasn't due to expire until 30th October 2020, is the section 21 valid? can I challenge it if it came to court? I was given 6 months and that ends on 2nd April 2021 and with the housing situation right now, I've not found anywhere to live.

Thank you in advance for your advice.

There's nothing wrong with giving a s21 notice during a fixed term tenancy so long as it was at least 4 months since you started living there if you're in England.

Go through this to have a check to see if the notice is valid: https://nearlylegal.co.uk/section-21-flowchart/
