A landlord I am working with has a HMO and would like to issue section 21 to all tenants (many of which are long term) as they would like to fully refurbish the property. However they are an elderly couple and haven’t kept up with all of the compliance and regulations surrounding lettings. As such some tenants haven’t had deposits protected, gas safety certificates / EPC’s issued or the “How to rent” guides.
I wondered the best way to move forward to ensure that everything could be made up to date and then issue the section 21’s so that tenants couldn’t state they were invalid etc. to make the process as smooth as possible.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
