Changes to the Prescribed Form

May 2019

Regulations have been passed making changes to the prescribed Section 21 Notice (Form 6A) (England).

The Assured Tenancies and Agricultural Occupancies (Forms) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 were passed on 07 May 2019 to coincide with the Tenant Fees Act 2019.

The main change to the prescribed form is the addition of a new subparagraph which explains that you cannot serve a Section 21 Notice (Form 6A) on a tenant in England if you have charged a prohibited payment or have retained a holding deposit in breach of the Tenant Fees Act 2019.

Our template Section 21 Notice (Form 6A) (England) is the new version which must be used in England from the 01 June 2019 onwards.
