I have just bought a house with an existing tenant. The tenancy was for a fixed term of 1 year beginning on 13 February 2013, and so the tenant has been holding over since February this year. The original landlord served a s21(1)(b) at the start of the tenancy.
I am wondering if I can rely on that s21 as I am not the landlord named on it, or in the tenancy agreement to which it relates. Do I need to serve a new notice and how do I transfer the tenancy to me as landlord in order to do this? Conveyancing solicitors on both sides have been absolutely hopeless.
If I do have to serve a new notice, should I rely on Spencer v Taylor and use s21(1)(b)?
A last question, where can I obtain a template for a rent authority letter?
The seller’s solicitor promised to provide one on completion but hasn’t yet done so, and the rent is due in a few days. The seller, who has fallen out with his solicitor, is prepared to sign such a letter.
Very grateful for any help!
Thanks in advance
