Property: Eviction notice periods change from 1 August 2021

Should the government stick to their timetable then eviction notice periods will reduce from 1 August 2021, marking the fourth change in notice periods required by landlords since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.

A current s.8 notice must satisfy one of the prescribed grounds for possession, the most common of which is rent arrears, in order to determine the notice period. For rent arrears, the required period of notice is currently either four months (for less than four months' arrears) or four weeks (four months' arrears or more) providing the notice was served on or after 1 June 2021. From 1 August the minimum notice period for tenants with arrears under four months will reduce to two months.

I have worked with Ortolan Legal since 2010 and used their services extensively. They have provided corporate and commercial legal advice and we have also drawn on their capability in the areas of employment law, dispute resolution and property law. What makes them so different is their ability consistently to deliver commercially focussed and high quality advice at a price point which simply cannot be matched by other law firms. They aim to strip out unnecessary overhead costs, concentrate on the quality of their core service and pass on these cost savings to their clients. It works.
