Essential Section 21 update for letting agents: Important changes just weeks away


Important changes have been made in real estate agents and landlords, just weeks before the politeness of the law on deregulation. The main changes actually take place in section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 or known as Section 21 Notice. Michelle Cox for the faithful readers of Eye has specially written introductions which specifically focus on this theme which talk about the main reasons that should be aware. It will be no possible the rule to serve a Section 21 of the tenants lived on the property for at least 4 months. This is intended especially for landlords to stop serving section 21 until tenants move into the property.

Any notice like this can’t be expired before the end of the expiry of each final term. A Section 21 Notice will be valid for 6 months only from the moment when will come into force. That means if in case the tenant does not leave, the procedure for possession must be initiated within 6 months of the Section 21 Notice. But completely different rules apply when we talking about the notice period specified in the lease are more than two months. According to Section 21 states that will no longer be valid if the date of possession which is given is not the last day of the period of the lease.

But this is precisely the main reason why Section 21 Notice was not successful. Landowners will be able to serve 21 Section Notice whatever the circumstances when it is contrary to the legal obligations of a tenant. These commitments think the condition of the property, health and safety of the passengers and the failure to provide a certificate of Energy or a valid certificate for gas a property.

Also, if the tenant has raised a complaint against the owner or agent of the property on the condition of the property, where there are also limitations in the service of Section 21. But if in that objection is raised that did not get any proper response, or no response, but no action or decision about correcting the appeal, then the tenant has the right to appeal to the local government. If served relevant notice from the local government, then section 21 notice can respond within six months from the date of that notification.

If the property owner or agent adequately responds to this within 14 days, and the job is done properly, then all this will have no impact on Section 21 Notice. A change which has already been entered into force is the protection of deposits. All deposits have been taken, but still maintained must be protected. Once you complete protection for the certificate of deposits, all information must be communicated to the tenant. Peace of mind for your property investment with our guaranteed rental scheme, no voids or late payments, and no hidden costs.
