I have often read that Landlords issue a Section 21 notice at the start of a tenancy.
My Question is what are the advantages of doing this, and are there any drawbacks that I should be aware of?
What happens if the AST ends and then rolls on to a Periodic tenancy and after a few more months and I require possession. Do I then give the tenant a written letter to say they have to vacate in 1 month which is the same amount of notice they have to give me, or do I then have to issue another Sec 21 giving 2 months notice again?
I have recently done this on a new 6 month AST and the tenant was not happy. Although I enclosed a letter saying this had become a standard practice with Landlords and I still wanted a long term tenancy, they assumed I wanted possession.
Any advice and guidance from readers will be gratefully received.
