Housing 21 Tenancy Agreement

Deposit and information protection requirements apply to any new lease. In the case of a consecutive tenancy between the same landlord and the tenant, the deposit is deemed to be repaid to the tenant by the landlord at the end of the old lease and the tenant immediately pays the deposit to the landlord for the new lease. [xxvii] As of March 26, 2015, if successive rental conditions apply to the same or substantially identical property, if the security deposit is maintained at the beginning of a new lease under the same approved system, as at the time the lessor complied with the final requirements. [xxviii] [36] According to paragraph 1, point b), the tenant must be subject to a period of at least two months for the landlord to need the property. [18] If the lease contains a break clause to determine the lease before the term of term expires, a notice pursuant to section 21, paragraph 1, point b may be sufficient to determine the lease in accordance with the pause clause. [x] The legislation remains in force and there are no clear authorities as to whether the notice can take place before the fixed term expires without a non-break clause. [18] A lessor cannot disclose section 21 within the first four months of a lease. If there are successive tenancy agreements between the same landlord and the tenant for the same property or substantially the same property, this prohibition applies at the beginning of the initial rent. The prohibition does not apply to a legal practice tenancy agreement. [xxxv] [36] Section 21 of the 1988 Act provides for two different mechanisms under which a lessor may terminate his contract in order to enter into possession of his property. In both cases, publication must be made in writing since the 1996 Act came into force.

[viii] A representative of the owner may report it on behalf of the owner. If there is a common owner, this can be communicated by each of them. If the tenant has a subtenant, a senior landlord cannot, at a time when he is not the direct owner of the occupant, make a valid communication, even if the tenant is completed before the notice period expires, so that the tenant is a direct tenant of the senior landlord. [ix] [16] If the notification is notified by a company, it must be signed or otherwise executed in accordance with the Companies Act 2006. [17] The Deregulation Act 2015 introduced a number of amendments that imposed new obligations on owners, the non-compliance of which revealed communications that appear to be inoperative under Section 21.
