As of 29 August 2020, landlords must, in most cases, provide a minimum of 6 months’ notice before seeking possession through the courts. This includes section 21 evictions and rent arrears under 6 months. To accommodate this change, the government has extended the validity of a section 21 notice from 6 to 10 months. Notices served on and before 28 August 2020 are not affected by these changes, and must be at least 3 months.
