House prices rocket and notice period eases

At last a little help for Landlords that plan to take possession of their property.

Notice periods reduced from 6 months to 4 months

The UK Government has announced that from 1 June 2021 notice periods in England that are currently six months, will now be reduced to four months.


As part of a phased approach through Step 3 and Step 4 of the Roadmap, notice periods are being reduced, apart from the most serious cases, which remain lower:

  • anti-social behaviour (immediate to 4 weeks’ notice)
  • domestic abuse in the social sector (2 to 4 weeks’ notice)
  • false statement (2 to 4 weeks’ notice)
  • over 4 months’ accumulated rent arrears (4 weeks’ notice)
  • breach of immigration rules ‘Right to Rent (2 weeks’ notice)
  • death of a tenant (2 months’ notice)

Opportunity for resale!
