New regulations for Residential Landlord & Tenant notices
New regulations for Residential Landlord & Tenant notices come into force
On 09 September 2021 new regulations were laid and come into force on 01 October 2021 which in effect put notice periods back to pre Coronavirus Act 2020 notice periods. Please see The Coronavirus Act 2020 (Residential Tenancies and Notices) (Amendment and Suspension) (England) Regulations 2021.
The Regulations also provide a new prescribed Form 3 (Section 8) and Form 6A (Section 21) to the Assured Tenancies and Agricultural Occupancies (Forms)(England) Regulations 2015.
It should be noted that these changes on 01 October 2021 will not validate a pre 01 October 2021 notice with the incorrect notice period given or if the incorrect prescribed form was used. Before serving notice it is wise to check you are using the correct version of Form 3 and/or 6A as there are incorrect versions out there!
