I thought it would NEVER happen! Weโ€™re getting to normal in the housing market.

As you may know, the notice periods for getting possession back on a property have moved all over the place in the last 18 months. Weโ€™ve had six-month, four-month and now finally two-month notice periods, returning to pre-COVID levels.

This has been a nightmare, with the goalposts moving continually but finally, we have returned to normality. From 1 October 2021 new prescribed forms to complete for Section 8 and Section 21 notices have been issued with older forms now considered invalid.

It should be noted though that the government โ€œintends to retain the power to implement any similar measures again in the future should the public health situation worsenโ€.

So what does this mean to you if you want to get back possession of your property?

What we advise:

Firstly we still recommend using a legal representative to draw up your Section 8 & Section 21 notices (we do), since itโ€™s easy to download the wrong form or fill in the wrong information. With the courts being backlogged you donโ€™t want any delays in getting your property back.

If youโ€™ve got any problems with your tenants or getting possession, let us know since we can provide you with a course of action to get your property back on track.

Remember โ€“ Itโ€™s our job to generate YOU wealth from YOUR property.

For any sales, lettings or refurb help:

  • Contact us today by phone or email to move your property to us.
  • Weโ€™ll contact your letting agent to ensure a seamless tenant transfer, including the deposit, keys and all paperwork.
  • Weโ€™ll contact your tenant to resolve any rent, maintenance or refurbishment issues you have, arranging a property visit if required.
  • Weโ€™ll begin the process of maximising your income and wealth.
