Hi all

I have created a Word form to use when providing a S21(1)(b) notice and would appreciate comments from the experts on the site as to whether this is helpful/useful/appropriate for landlords to use.

If there are other bits of text of help that you feel should be added please let me know, I'll amend it and post the revised form for whoever wants to use it to download.

Couldn't attach the form, so here's the content. Obviously it's much better as a Word doc as it's formatted better, and has some help text included in the fields. If anyone wants me to send it over to review it properly, please send a PM.
________

Housing Act 1988 Section 21 (1) (b)

Notes:

2. The length of the notice must be at least two months and, if given before or on the day on which the fixed term comes to an end, will expire on the date shown.

So, what do you think?

Amend as follows (capitals show wording to insert)?

"...give you notice that, UNDER SECTION 21(1)(b) OF THE HOUSING ACT 1988, I INTEND TO APPLY TO THE COURT FOR AN ORDER FOR possession of...WHICH YOU HOLD OF ME UNDER AN ASSURED SHORTHOLD TENANCY WHICH EXPIRES on..."

"SUCH APPLICATION WILL BE MADE on...UNLESS YOU HAVE BY THAT DATE QUIT THE PREMISES".

I still prefer to use the printed S21 Notice from Lawpack to download versions from LandlordZONE or elsewhere.

For contents of Lawpack notice see my post number 6 in S21 Notice/s from LandlordZONE (http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=2319)
