New possession notice regulation & template

Filed in Landlords by on 27th September, 2015

The New Section 21 possession notice template for AST’s can be found within the recently released “The Assured Shorthold Tenancy Notices and Prescribed Requirements (England) Regulations 2015” by clicking here. The regulation comes into effect from 1st October on all AST’s agreed on or after this date.  It can be used on existing AST’s, however, there does not appear to be any advantage in doing so. The regulation details the prescribed information that must have been provided to the tenant (EPC & Gas Safety Certificate). There are some new rules, so it’s worth a read. I am just waiting for the first court to reject the notice because a blue pen was used instead of a black one!
