Section 21 is the no fault way of obtaining possession from a tenant who has signed an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST).

What is a Section 21 Notice?

A Section 21 Housing Act 1988 notice is the first step to obtaining the property back. These are used when the landlord wants to regain possession of a property at the end of an assured shorthold tenancy or wishes to exercise a ‘Break Clause’.

The landlord is able to issue the tenant with a Section 21 notice without giving any reason for ending the tenancy agreement.
