Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.
It sounds as if you want to know whether or not the S.21 notice is a proper one.
You have not been served a S.8 notice which is one for breach.
You have been given a S.21 notice which means the Landlord can end the tenancy.
So the reality is it makes no difference whether or not you were running a business as its a S.21 you have been served to end the tenancy.
S.21 notice is a non-fault ending of the tenancy.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not might I invite you to leave me a positive rating before you go, this ensures the site pays me for the time spent answering your question.
If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
If they knew for 6 years then you are not.
But the S.21 procedure is for a no-fault ending of tenancy, so whether you are in breach does not matter.
Does that assist?
Sadly not - the Court suspended any Court proceedings from 27th March until the end of this month.
So your Landlord could not even apply for possession because the Court service won't let him
But until you are served with a s.8 notice then it does not matter what he is saying.
If you get served a S.8 notice and you reject it, then a Judge can make a ruling on that basis
Does that help?
If you reject the notice it would have to go to Court if the Landlord wants you evicted
If the Court orders you out, then the Court can award you pay the costs of bringing to Court.
Yes, you would have to show the Landlord knew and gave consentDoes that help?
Yes, that certainly gives constructive notice.
Notice is where they come and see.
Yes, that is why you have a valid defence.
But forget that for the moment - you have not been served with a s.8 notice, only a s.21 notice.
So that is a no-fault possession
Ok - but you don't need to move unless a COurt orders you to do so.As I have already indicated that is going to be sometime away
Ok. Can I assist with anything else tonight?
Yes, they can and no it is not harassment
Does that clarify?
