When to use this Section 21 Notice
This document is suitable for a landlord who has let his or her property under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement (AST), where the fixed term of the tenancy has expired and a periodic tenancy is in place.
Example Section 21 below. This legal notice informs tenants that their tenancy is going to end and the landlord is going to take repossession of the property. A Section 21 Notice is commonly known as a ‘no fault notice’.
A Section 21 notice is the only valid way of ending an assured shorthold tenancy where the tenants have not breached the tenancy agreement. It must also be completed in a prescribed format to be valid. Your tenant may be able to refuse to leave the property if you don’t serve the notice correctly.
