Section21 1 b notice served in 2013

We would very much appreciate the benefit of your advice. Our tenant has been in the property since 1 June 2013 but, because of problems with the previous tenant, we served a Section 21 (1) (b) notice on 29 August 2013 requiring possession on 1 December 2013 simply to safeguard our position. notice

After six months the tenancy changed to periodic. We are now thinking of selling the property and would ideally like to sell it as a buy to let so that the tenant can stay on.

If however, this is unsuccessful and we put it on the open market, do we have to serve a further two months notice on our tenant and, if so, what part of Section 21 would this fall under.

Many thanks

Carole

Hi Gareth - thanks for taking the trouble to reply. We're thinking of advertising the property on a buy-to-let site initially and then, if this is unsuccessful, to try to sell on the open market so there will be no imminent sale although we would like to sell sooner rather than later. In the circumstances I agree with you that it would be better to serve a new notice, which I presume would be under Section 21 (4) (a)??

Carole- No worries. Yes, as the tenancy is now periodic, you would be serving a Section 21(4) notice.
