Tenant Eviction – Section 21 (6A Form)

£9.50 £0.00


This is is the 6A form required to be used when serving a Section 21 notice in England.

There are certain circumstances in which the law says that you cannot seek possession against your tenant using section 21 of the Housing Act 1988, in which case you should not use this form. These are:


  • during the first four months of the tenancy (but where the tenancy is a replacement tenancy, the four-month period is calculated by reference to the start of the original tenancy and not the start of the replacement tenancy – see section 21(4B) of the Housing Act 1988);


  • where the landlord is prevented from retaliatory eviction under section 33 of the Deregulation Act 2015;


  • where the landlord has not provided the tenant with an energy performance certificate, gas safety certificate or the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s publication “How to rent: the checklist for renting in England” (see the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Notices and Prescribed Requirements (England) Regulations 2015);


  • where the landlord has not complied with the tenancy deposit protection legislation;


  • where a property requires a licence but is unlicensed

(NB see section 75 of the Housing Act 2004 which relates to Houses in Multiple Occupation (“HMO”); or


  • where the landlord is prevented under section 17 of the Tenant Fees Act 2019. (NB No section 21 notice may be given in relation to a tenancy where a landlord has breached section 1(1) or Schedule 2 of that Act so long as all or part of the prohibited payment or holding deposit has not been repaid to the relevant person or applied to the rent or deposit with the consent of the relevant person.)
