How to issue section 21 if landlord not up to date with regulations?

Thank you, that could be an interesting option. The fear I have which I will find out once I finish doing the tenant audit is that some were not served a GSC at commencement of tenancy and seems no way around that.... Read More

Thanks Michael, section 8 ground 8 wouldn’t be applicable I don’t believe as tenants are not in arrears.

It is a mystery as to how it can be almost impossible to ask tenants to vacate if something hasn’t be done quite right as in this case!... Read More

Thanks so much for your comment. I beleive that if I issue EPC's, How to Rent Guide, as GSC's to tenants and refund their deposits (if not protected, need to double check for all tenants) and then issue the S21 it should be valid?

I am going to first speak to all tenants via email to let them know plans and offer 2 months notice to see if they agree to move out without the need for S21's, hopefully. Although have been informed there are a couple of tenants that are a little tricky!

That's an interesting thought of issuing new tenancies, I guess we would then have to wait the 4 month period before being able to issue the S21's if taking that route?... Read More

Hi Neil,

Thank you for taking the time to reply. I need to check the status of the GSC as believe these should be in place for two of the properties as they are licensed HMO's.

I understand that if the landlord didn't protect the deposits the option would then be to return them prior to issuing the section 21 notice and it wouldn't then make it invalid? Although appreciate the tenant could then take the landlord to court as a separate issue because of no deposit protection and nothing to avoid that risk?

The landlords are elderly and want to get on top of the situation now and start a fresh with new tenants once refurbs have been done and have the admin etc. handed over to a property manager to keep on top of compliance etc.... Read More
