On 1 October 2015 certain elements of the Deregulation Act 2015 come into force. This will affect Landlords who are contemplating evicting their tenants.

If you act now before 1 October 2015 you will avoid the restrictions imposed by the new regulations. The new regulations affecting evictions are as follows:-

  • From 1 October 2015 all Section 21 notices will have a life span of 6 months.
  • From 1 October 2015 a landlord will have to wait four months after the tenancy starts before a section 21 notice is served.
  • Retaliatory Evictions – From 1 October 2015 a landlord will be prevented from serving a section 21 notice if a tenant has made a written complaint regarding the condition of the property or common parts and the landlord has not responded or provided an inadequate response.

Regency Law can draft and serve your section 21 notice for you. If you would like us to do so, please use the instruction form.
