Is This A Section21 Notice In The Contract

Recommended Posts

Just going over the specimen contract and it has this-

This agreement is intended to create an Assured Shorthold Tenancy as defined by Section 19A of the Housing Act 1988 as amended and shall take effect subject to the provisions for recovery of possession provided for by virtue of Section 21 of that Act.

Since the contract will have the date the tenancy ends, landlords name and our names and the address is this one of those sneaky section 21's slipped in at the start of the contract?

No. This is just a standard clause outlining what your contract is i.e. an AST.

A .21 will look something like this;


I must admit I never understand why people consider it 'sneaky' to serve one at the start of the tenancy?


I think it's sneaky because either they want to be a landlord or they don't so if it's the former then they should give it time to decide what sort of a tenant you'll be before deciding. Yeh you could move in and get one the next day but surely they would by common decency wait to see the nature of the tenant before serving one.
