Section 21 notices and notice periods – NL does video

In a moment of madness, I decided to try doing videos on individual problems in housing law. For the first, and quite possibly last, this is my view on a concern that appears to be doing the rounds that the courts will require 6 months notice on section 21 notices, even when they were validly served with three months notice before 29 August 2020.

    A wonderful turn of events. Can only echo the consensus above. Once used, the brackets must stay…!

    I’m never going to be able to red the name of a Act the same way again!
