Section 21 Notice in England
A notice under Section 21 is most commonly given where a landlord wants the property back after a fixed term ends or during a periodic assured shorthold tenancy. Obtaining possession of a property under S21 is sometimes called ‘no fault’ possession due to there being no requirement to specify why the landlord requires possession.
Section 21 Notices: Wales
Serving a Section 21 Notice is the first step that a Landlord takes to make a Tenant leave the property. It does not mean that the Tenant has to leave the property immediately – it will provide a notice period with the date to leave specified in the notice. A Landlord does not need a reason to serve a Section 21 Notice.
