The Risk of Extending Your Section 21 Deadline

Posted on August 2, 2022

We have spoken to a number of landlord clients recently who have agreed to extend their Section 21 deadlines in order to assist their tenants and the local council in rehousing the tenants.
This is risky.
It is really important that any landlord or agents note that a Section 21 notice can only be used as the basis of a possession claim if the possession claim is issued within 6 months of the date on which the Section 21 notice is given to the tenants.
On three recent occasions our landlord clients have granted extensions of the Section 21 notice whilst in discussions with the tenants and council. By the time they come to Barwells the 6 month period has expired and we then have to issue a new Section 21 notice.
If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to contact us on litigation@barwells.com or 01273 582271.
