A section 21 notice can be issued to start the legal process to end an assured shorthold tenancy. It can be served where the tenancy is a fixed term and has ended or where it is periodic. The landlord does not have to give a reason for wanting to repossess the property, unlike where a landlord might want to serve a section 8 notice.

Landlords issuing a section 8 notice can have confidence that their section 8 notice has been delivered to the tenant.

Landlords simply have to set the terms of the notice, specify the parties to whom the notice needs to be served and wait for the tenant to view and sign the notice. Parties can use the Activity Tab to discuss any terms relating to the notice and the landlord can receive updates as to the progress of the notice, giving them the confidence that proceedings are in the process.
