A few days before the 1st June 2021 in preparation for S21 notice, I rang the NRLA regarding Form 6A and the new 4 months’ notice. I downloaded the form as per their advice from the govt web site. Filled it in ready with all relevant paperwork and I served the notice very early in the morning of 1 June, and tenants acknowledged receipt soon after by text message.
BUT ALAS, I now discovered a new Form 6A was published on 1 June 2021! The crucial difference between them is on page 3, first line of 2nd paragraph. The new form says “four moths’ notice”, while the old form says “six months’ notice”.
So this situation have resulted in landlords/ agents who prepared their paperwork before 1 June and then served on the 1 June to have the wrong date – because the old form says 6 months’ notice, but I have filled in the date to leave of 4 months. No doubt our cases would be thrown out by the courts in due course.
However, it should not be a problem if you have filled in 6 months’ notice as the leaving date on the old form, or your Form 6A was printed on or after 1 June and you have filled in 4 months.
We are thinking of re-serving the notice, but we are ringing the NRLA tomorrow and see what they say.
Any comments and other remedies would be appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.
