The legal system in England and Wales is set to undergo significant changes with the introduction of new costs regime which was introduced on 1st October 2023. These changes will impact all new claims made after this date. Fixed recoverable costs are the set the amount of legal costs that the winning party can claim back from the losing party in civil litigation. They already apply in most low-value personal injury cases, but the government has extended these areas from October to include civil litigation.
For any tenancy granted after 1st October 2015, the tenant must be provided with the most recent How to Rent Guide available at the time. The Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities has on 24th March 2023 issued a revised version of the guide. If you fail to serve your tenant with the relevant copy of the guide you will be unable to serve a valid S.21 Notice should this be required further down the line. It is therefore important to ensure this step has been followed at the outset of any new tenancy agreement.
