A Section 21 notice is used to evict tenants after a fixed-term tenancy concludes or during a tenancy with no specified end date, also known as a “periodic” tenancy. There does not need to be any reason as to why the landlord requires possession of the property. Perhaps they want to sell the property, live in it themselves or rent it to someone else.
The notice must grant tenants a minimum of 2 months to vacate the property. However, longer notice periods may be required for contractual periodic tenancies, aligning with the rental period.
In case tenants do not vacate by the specified date, landlords can proceed to apply for an accelerated possession order.
