My name is ***** ***** I will try and help you today.
I am sorry you are experiencing this problem with your landlord.
Is it an assured shorthold tenancy for a fixed term?
Then the landlord is at liberty to serve a section 21 notice to evict you in any event.
At the moment the notice period has to be 4 months but it can be done to expire in November 2021.
If you receive such a notice the landlord still needs to obtain a court order to evict you.
To succeed the section 21 has to comply with various requirements.
If you paid a deposit it has to be registered with a scheme; the landlord had to provide you with a Gas Safety Certificate and Energy Performance Certificate and the government's "How to Rent" booklet.
Also the notice must be on Form 6A.
If any of the above are missing the notice is invalid and they cannot evict you.
However, if they are determined sooner or later they can do so.
I suggest you try and negotiate with them as they are being extreemely unreasonable.
Possibly if you can prove his ill intent because the nature of the section 21 is a no fault notice.
Keep the text as evidence.
