Have I got the dates right on non paying tenant?Make Text Bigger
I am wondering if anyone could offer some advice re section 21 (4) notice recently served on non paying tenant, because I am not sure if the expiry date is correct gulp!
The tenant has been in since 2013 so it’s a statutory periodic arrangement now and no deposit was taken.
I have given more than 2 months notice, but expiry date was not the last date before a rent payment was due although there’s a clause in relation to this which implies that if the expiry date did not comply then the date of expiry would revert to the next relevant date whereby the tenancy period would end and next payment would be due. I’m actually 2 days too early, but the notice period is over 2 months regardless of this.
From what I can gather it’s very similar to Spencer v Taylor – so the bottom line is would this stand up in front of the judge or is there every possibility it would be thrown out ?
Help needed if anyone has experienced similar please.
