REQUIRED NOTICE PERIOD
A notice can be issued more than two months before the
end of a tenancy but it should not be dated to expire on or
before the last day of the tenancy. For example, if a Section
21 notice was issued four months before the tenancy was
due to end, the notice would have to be dated after the last
day of the fixed term.
If a section 21 notice is issued during the initial fixed term of a
tenancy to regain possession at the end of the fixed term tenancy,
then should the landlord decide to grant another fixed term,
a new section 21 notice would be required to regain possession.
