Need your property back? Here's what you need to do

Private landlords must follow strict procedures for an assured shorthold tenant to be lawfully evicted from their property.

On 1 October 2015 certain elements of the Deregulation Act 2015 came into force. This will affect Landlords who are contemplating evicting their tenants and will make it harder for them to do so.

  • From 1 October 2015 all Section 21 notices will have a lifespan of 6 months
  • From 1 October 2015 a landlord will have to wait four months after the tenancy starts before a section 21 notice is served
  • Retaliatory Evictions – From 1 October 2015 a landlord will be prevented from serving a section 21 notice if a tenant has made a written complaint regarding the condition of the property or common parts and the landlord has not responded or provided an inadequate response.
