New regulations come into force on 1 June 2019, amending the Section 21 (s21) prescribed form template for use with assured shorthold tenancies. Ensure you replace your template notice!
The new Regulations amends the prescribed Form 6A, which is the s21 notice. The new Form 6A must be used from 1 June 2019, otherwise the notice is highly likely to be invalid.
The main changes are in the explanatory notes section, which state:
- the notice cannot be used where, under the Tenant Fees Act 2019, a landlord has received a “prohibited payment”;
- the notice will not be valid if a landlord has not applied for a licence where they are required to. Notably this now includes HMO licences; and
- information for tenants concerned that they are at risk of becoming homeless upon receiving the notice.
The full Regulations (The Assured Tenancies and Agricultural Occupancies (Forms) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2019) can be found here.
We have also created an electronic Word document of the amended s21 notice which is free to clients. If you would like us to send you a copy of this version, please email Helen Tucker or Rumandeep Dhariwal.
