We are delighted to announce that our private wealth law department has continued to maintain its Band 2 position in the latest edition of Chambers and Partners High Net Worth.
As you will be aware the Form N5B is the claim form used for accelerated possession proceedings following service of a Section 21 notice seeking possession (in respect of an assured shorthold tenancy). The newly revised form incorporates the changes to the requirements for valid Section 21 notices by requiring confirmation by the Claimant landlord that it has provided a copy of the property’s Energy Performance Certificate and Gas Safety Certificate to the tenant. The landlord must also detail when these documents were provided to the tenant.
The updated form also reflects the additional statutory requirements for private landlords (such as those concerning deposits and the ‘How to Rent’ booklet) and requires confirmation of compliance with these requirements. However, the form does recognise that Registered Providers do not need to fill in all sections and clearly signposts which of them must be completed.
Claimants must use the new form N5B for all new accelerated possession claims for all tenancies that commenced on or after 1 October 2015. It can be found here. If you require any further information please contact Baljit Basra.
