Tenancy Evictions

Landlords must give at least two month’s notice under Section 21 of The Housing Act if possession is required at the end of, or after, the expiry of a fixed term tenancy agreement.

This is obtained by serving a Notice Requiring Possession.  Unless otherwise stated in the Tenancy Agreement, tenants paying their rent monthly are required to give a months notice whilst tenants paying weekly need to give four weeks notice.

Whilst the term of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy can now be for less than six months, a court can still not evict a tenant under Section 21 of the Housing Act until a term of six months has expired.  There are other grounds for eviction i.e. non-payment of rent where it is not necessary to give two months notice.
