This is a procedure for documents that can only be used if there is a valid written lease agreement and a valid s21 notification has been served. If all other documents are correct, such as those mentioned above and with regard to the protection of the tenant deposit, and no other complications, Accelerated Possession (AP) may be the best and a slightly faster way to get a property order than the standard way with the N5b justice form. However, a judge is still free to order a hearing when he or she deems it necessary, such as when the tenant establishes a defence. Through Twitter (@garetharcher), I received a request regarding the notice period that a tenant must make available to the landlord to terminate the lease.

Not all landlords comply with the legal requirements for tenant termination and most accept one month`s notice at any time, although tenants are willing to meet the full notice period. The rent is payable up to and including the last day of the rental period, whether or not the tenant interrupts prematurely. The communication referred to in section 8 must state the reasons (Housing Act 1988, as amended in 1996, Schedule 2) on which the lessor relies, and they must be drafted in the communication exactly as they appear in the law. the lease agreement started after April 2007 and you have not paid the tenants` deposit in a deposit guarantee scheme You usually need to get the agreement of your landlord and other tenants to end your temporary joint lease. If you end your lease, it ends for everyone….
