Section 21 Notice

from The Landlord Engine

The Section 21 notice is otherwise known as the no-fault notice. This is a notice asking your tenants to give up possession of the property. You are not required to give a reason why. There are various technicalities to consider so that this notice is served accurately. 

It’s very easy to serve a Section 21 notice incorrectly. Before you can even consider it you must make sure that all the boxes have been ticked in connection to issuing relevant prescribed documents to your tenants before and during the tenancy. Any tenancy deposit being suitably protected is also key to being able to serve a valid Section 21 notice. 

A Section 21 notice and a Section 8 notice can be served at the same time if there is also a breach of the tenancy. If there is a tenancy breach many landlords would choose to commence court proceedings under the Section 21 eviction procedure (if possible) because, providing the notice is valid, you are not having to ‘prove’ your case. A tenant cannot defend a claim for possession under Section 21 and generally a court hearing is not required. A court hearing may be required, for example, if a tenant asks for a possession date to be postponed due to hardship. More information on the eviction process can be found here.

  • COST:  Producing a Section 21 Notice: £102 (£85 + vat).

We make our process straight forward for everyone involved:

Step One: Bring us up to speed

We ask you about the current situation and confirm if it’s appropriate to serve a Section 21 notice to your tenants. We’ll need copies of your tenancy agreement and various other documents served. Once we have all that we need we will be able to get started.

Step Two: Pay us the pennies

We let you know the fee. We will ask you settle the fee so that we can move forward and prepare the notice for your tenant.

Step Three: Issuing the notice

We will issue the notice to your tenant via an e-sign system which will be able to authenticate that the tenant received it. We can also post a copy of the notice to your tenants’ address, where required, and can even send you a PDF of the notice should you wish to hand deliver a copy for a ‘belts and braces’ approach. We will keep in touch with you to assess any progress and consider a future action plan, if required.

Step Four: Following up

Should it be applicable, we will diarise to contact you at the expiry of any notice to check in and see if you require any further assistance.

And that’s it! It really is that easy to issue legally compliant Section 21 notices to your tenants. To take advantage of this service please call us on 0333 320 2207 or complete the contact form below.
