Hi there,

You do need to serve a Section 21 unless the tenants themselves give you notice. Otherwise the tenancy will continue, even if it is only a 6 month agreement, as a Periodic tenancy.

Just download one from the documents section, fill it in correctly (there are guidelines in the Documents section, I think) making sure he end date is the date the tenancy expires, or the rent due date. You have to serve it at least 2 months before you wish the tenancy to end.

Make sure you get the date right. It is pretty much the only thing that can trip a Section 21 up. Post it, obtaining Proof of posting (not Recorded Delivery as they can then not sign for it). Or hand deliver it and have a witness sign to say they observe you delivering to tenants, or serving on the address (you only need to post it through the letterbox if it is in the door, or push it under the door.

If you're unsure about the dates, or access, check with Dave A at the helpdesk.
