The MHCLG .Gov website (click here) has just released new Assured Tenancy forms including 6A which confirm the new government policy of 3 months notice. This is also under review and as threatened in Scotland could be increased at a later date to 6 months.
Form 6A: for a no fault possession notice on an assured shorthold tenancy Click here
This form should be used where a no fault possession of accommodation let under an assured shorthold tenancy is sought under section 21(1) or (4) of the Housing Act 1988.
What to do if this notice is served on you You should read this notice very carefully.
It explains that your landlord has started the process to regain possession of the property referred to in section 2 below. You are entitled to at least three months’ notice before being required to give up possession of the property. However, if your tenancy started on a periodic basis without any initial fixed term a longer notice period may be required depending on how often you are required to pay rent (for example, if you have a periodic tenancy which is half yearly or annual, you must be given at least six months’ notice (which is the maximum)). The date you are required to leave should be shown in section 2 below. After this date the landlord can apply to court for a possession order against you.
Where your tenancy is terminated before the end of a period of your tenancy (e.g. where you pay rent in advance on the first of each month and you are required to give up possession in the middle of the month), you may be entitled to repayment of rent from the landlord under section 21C of the Housing Act 1988.
If you need advice about this notice, and what you should do about it, take it immediately to a Citizens’ Advice Bureau, a housing advice centre, a law centre or a solicitor.
