MHCLG have finally as of yesterday updated and corrected the wording of the Section 21 official document 6A seeking possession. This is after articles written by Giles Peaker in Nearly legal along with behind the scenes communication. Click here to view his article.
Giles wrote detailing the mistakes saying: “Form 6A is prescribed by statute. The wording of Form 6A is set out in regulations, most recently The Assured Tenancies and Agricultural Occupancies (Forms) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2019. I say most recently, because there has been no statutory instrument to bring into effect the changes that MHCLG have made. None has even been laid.
“What this means is that the Form 6A on the gov.uk site under ‘assured tenancy forms’ is currently not actually valid as the prescribed form and should not be used. Which, as problems go, is a corker. The form 6A in the Forms Regulations remains the prescribed form for use.”
On the 12th of August MHCLG wrote updating their notes to say: “On the 30th of July 2019, an incorrect version of form 6A was incorrectly uploaded. If you have downloaded the form 6A which was available between 30th July and 12th August 2019 please replace this with the correct form.”
The form is now safe to use again, click here to download, but Giles said: “Both the ‘How to Rent guide and Form 6A snafus have been corrected. It really shouldn’t be down to eagle eyed watchers like Rich Greenhill and David Smith to have to spot these things, though.”
