Section 21 "No fault" Notice to Residential Tenant to Quit

No grounds for eviction, but want your property back? Then serving a Section 21 notice will be just the ticket for you!

The Courts believe it is your right as a Residential Landlord to claim your property back and so Section 21 gives you this procedure to document your request and for the Court to agree and issue a Notice of Repossession. 

Commonly known as a ‘no-fault’ notice, a tenant can be removed from your property even if they haven’t broken the contract. A Section 21 notice can also be used if you have a tenant that will not vacate your property after their agreed leasing term has elapsed.

Advantage of a Section 21 Notice

Many landlords prefer to use Section 21 rather than Section 8.  Why?  The landlord does not have to give any reason for wanting to gain possession of the property and does not need to turn up at Court for a hearing.

Before issuing a Section 21 Notice

It is to be noted that, as per the Deregulation Act 2015,  Section 21 Notices in England will not be valid for any property where a local authority has served an Enforcement Notice after a tenant has made a complaint about the condition of the property.  All such disrepair must be remedied for a landlord to be eligible for his Section 21 Notice application to be considered.


With the exception of falling foul of the Deregulation Act of 2015,  a judge will either grant or reject your application based on the merits of your application as well as on consideration of the consequences for the tenant i.e. is the tenant vulnerable, will the tenant be left homeless. 


The Court also considers whether you have been an informed and enlightened landlord and managed your rental property according to best practice and in compliance with the various regulations and laws governing landlords.


Normally, it is a requirement to attach to the application the following documents : 

the property’s Energy Performance Certificate
the government’s ‘How to Rent’ guide
the current Gas Safety Certificate  

which must be valid,  issued within the correct timeframe and for the right duration.

Of course, as an enlightened landlord, you should have already supplied these to the tenant.

Failure to attach these documents to the application for Section 21 will not only cause your application to fail but could also mean that you are financially penalised in that you might have to pay back some or even all of the rent already paid by the tenant. 

If you have not satisfied all conditions or are unsure about whether you have satisfied the conditions,  just call us at UK-Debtcollection.com since our job is to get your documentation in order and maximise the likelihood of obtaining the Section 21 Repossession Notice based on the evidence at hand or based on valid reasons for any lack of evidence. 

Ensure that all these conditions have been met and the correct evidence provided.

Avoid Section 21 errors 

The landlord must protect the deposit, use the correct form and give the right length of notice to the tenant to vacate the property which is always 2 months minimum.  This is not all that needs to be done.

It used to be easy for a landlord to serve a valid Section 21 Notice. However, now, there are various Section 21 Notice versions,  changes to the rules for new tenancies in England and conditions that the landlord must fulfill. 

Since the whole issue of Section 21 Notices is now more complicated, it is easy to make a mistake. 

Why risk a mistake leading to dismissal of your application for a Section 21 Notice and a consequent delay in removing your tenant and regaining possession of your property, a delay which will cost you time, money and worry ?

Avoid mistakes.  Instruct us to accurately assess your situation and ensure all the requirements are met.
