Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
If you can forward the Notice to me, as an attachment, I will gladly look at it.
When replying, could you also confirm on what day of the month the rent is due.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Having trouble attaching documents is there an email address I can send them to?
Our rent is due 28th of the month and the original contract start date was 02/07/2014. The S21 was issued on 01/07/2014. I received a verbal notice to leave from the letting agent on Monday 11/05/2015 and the documents on 12/05/2015. Our deposit is protected and I received information about the deposit scheme.
Thanks for your reply, and copy letter from Mortemore Mackay.
A lot of efficient Landlords do serve their section 21 Notice at the commencement of the Tenancy, meaning they do not need to serve another Notice 2 months prior to the end of the Tenancy.
Therefore, provided the section 21 Notice you received does quote the end date of the 1st July 2015, then I'm afraid it is valid and no further formal Notice would have been required to be served by your Landlord/Agent.The letter you received from the Agents therefore acts merely as a courtsey letter to confirm you must vacate at the end of the fixed term.
I am sorry this may not be the answer you were looking for, but it sets out the legal position.
Can they serve the S21 before the contract is due to start?
Thanks for your reply.
You had better send me the s21 Notice, so I can see exactly what it says, if you are able?
Thanks, ***** ***** need to see the actual Notice, if you can forward this,please.
I don't have any other documentation. Is the attached S21 not the notice? Also, our deposit was not protected until 23/07/14. I understand the S21 should not be issued until the deposit is protected.
Tenancy started 02/07/2014 for 12 months. Rent paid 28th of each month.
Thanks Joshua, very helpful. Should the S21 I attached be a copy of the Notice I was served at the beginning of the tenancy, as I don't recall receiving one? The receipt is the only dated document I have, is this proof enough that the S21 was received on that day?
