New Procedures to End Assured Shorthold Tenancy

without comments

“From 1 October 2015, Landlords, and indeed, their agents, will need to comply with new procedures for ending an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. If Landlords fail to comply with the new procedures, then this will prevent them from obtaining a possession order for possession of such premises. Changes are introduced, via the Deregulation Act 2015, to the “requirements” necessary before a Section 21 Notice to end such tenancies is valid,  the introduction of a new “prescribed” Form of Section 21 Notice, as well as to time limits within which possession proceedings must be commenced.

From 1 October 2015, Landlords will be unable to serve a Section 21 Notice within the first 4 months of the grant of such tenancy. Further, any claim for possession must be started within 6 months of service of the section 21 Notice. If possession proceedings are not started within this period, then a fresh Section 21 Notice will be required to be served before a possession order can be made.

A Section 21 Notice will now be invalid unless, when granting an Assured Shorthold Tenancy, in addition to complying with the existing requirements relating to registering deposits under the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and serving detailed information about such scheme, the tenant is now also provided with an Energy Performance Ceritificate and a Gas Safety Certificate. In addition, the tenant must also be served with “prescribed information”, in the form of a document entitled “How to rent: a checklist for renting in England” which is published by the Department for Communities and Local Government, and which must be the edition current at the time. It would be best practice to ensure that such “prescribed information”, energy performance certificate and gas certificate are all provided at the start of such tenancy.

Landlords will be relieved to know that the changes will only apply to Assured Shorthold Tenancies granted on or after 1 October 2015. They will not apply to such existing fixed term tenancies  granted before 1 October 2015, even if, after that date, the fixed term becomes a statutory periodic tenancy.However, Landlords need to be aware that from 1 October 2018, the new rules and changes will apply to any Assured Shorthold Tenancy, irrespective of when tenancy was created.

These new changes will certainly be food for thought by Landlords and their agents, as failure to comply will be fatal to obtaining a “no-fault” Possession Order at the end of the term. Equally, tenants faced with possible eviction, will undoubtedly take advantage of the new requirements imposed upon Landlords, in finding ways to invalidate a Section 21 Notice.
