I am hoping for clarification on this as it seems many in the profession are acting on conflicting assumptions/understandings.
If landlord uses the Form 6A on a tenancy which commenced pre-01/10/15 did he need to comply with the changes under the the DRA2015; i.e. serve Gas Cert, EPC & How to rent guide? Or can they use the new form 6A, not serve the documents because those new rules only apply to post 01/01/15 tenancies and thus no need to provide them.
So in short there are 2 understandings floating around……
1. You can use form 6A in any event and because the tenancy is pre-01/10/15 there is no need to serve the prescribed documents;
2. You can use form 6A in any event but even though the tenancy is pre-01/10/15 you must still serve the prescribed documents in order to be allowed to use the form 6A.
I would love to get this clarified!
