Legal and illegal eviction

Is my landlord's Section 21 notice valid?

Your landlord can take back their property without giving any reason. However, they must:

  • Protect your deposit in a deposit protection scheme
  • Provide you with a copy of the Prescribed Information
  • Give you at least two months' written notice via a fully completed Form 6a
  • Make sure the leaving date they set is at least six months after your original tenancy began
  • Hold all the correct licences if you are in a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO)
  • Evict you after your fixed term expires or make sure you have a periodic (month-to-month) tenancy
