'Section 21 Notice to Quit'
A 'Section 21 Notice to Quit', so called because it operates under
section 21 of the Housing Act 1988, is the notice a landlord can
give to a tenant to regain possession of a property at the end
of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST). The landlord is able to
issue the tenant with a section 21 notice without giving any reason
for ending the tenancy agreement. It cannot be served until after the
tenancy has commenced and it os good practice not to issue it the
day the tenancy is created.
