Landlords! Are you ready for the Update to Section 21 on the 1st October?
Welcome to my blog, Rumbles Blog. The blog of probably the most knowledgable English Bulldog you will ever meet!
This week I've been researching the Governments changes to Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 that come into force on the 1st October 2015, changes that could potentially cost landlords thousands of pounds if they do not handle it correctly.
There are quite a few changes that relate to section 21. Changes relate to how and when the notice can be served to a tenant, how long a notice is valid for, and the process of dealing with the serving of a notice.
Some of the changes are black and white, others are a little more complicated and very easy for the Landlord to misinterpret and implement incorrectly.
However, landlords need to be fully aware of these changes and very aware of the legal costs that can be involved. If you get any element of serving a notice incorrect it can cost a landlord thousands of pounds. Solicitors fees for serving a notice can be a small fortune and something a landlord needs to ensure they take steps to avoid.
