Will changes to The Deregulation Act 2015 mean you may not be entitled to serve a Section 21 Notice?

Will changes to The Deregulation Act 2015 mean you may not be entitled to serve a Section 21 Notice?

From 1stOctober 2015, The Deregulation Act 2015 (DA 2015) will restrict a landlord's ability to serve a section 21 notice at the beginning of a tenancy or in circumstances where the tenant has complained about the condition of the property and the landlord:

·        has not responded within 14 days;

·        has provided an inadequate response; or

·        responded by serving a Section 21 Notice.

The DA 2015 will also introduce an obligation on landlords to provide information about the respective rights and responsibilities of both the landlord and the tenant under the assured shorthold tenancy (AST). The landlord will be prevented from serving a section 21 notice when it is in breach of this requirement.

Click here for full details of the implications of the new rules which will apply to ASTs granted or or after 1st October 2015.

To discuss how these changes to The Deregulation Act 2015 affect you as a landlord, please speak to one of our experts:
