About A day ago 76
I am considering evicting a tenant of 2.5 years as they are really hard work, and not looking after my property as it should be.
My last inspection was 2 weeks ago an I found the place is becoming a tip and there is damp and mould starting in some rooms due to lack of heating and ventilating. On inspection I could not even open a window as they were all locked and the tenant had to ask is partner for the key.
I asked them to abide by the agreement that states and damp/mould should be washed off, as it could damage the structure and be a health risk for them and there young children. A week later the damp is spreading and it the landlords job to sort it out.
A section 21 was served during the original AST, and they were rolled on to a periodic.
My question; I know there have been changes to serving a section 21, but is my old one served 18 months ago unaffected by the change. Can I say I want you out in a month or do I now have to serve a new sec 21 and give them 2 months notice.
I’m sure others will be wondering if ones served ages ago is valid.
