- Was your tenancy agreement (your original tenancy agreement) for a fixed term of not less than six months? and
- Was a valid notice under section 20 of the Housing Act 1988 served on you before you signed your first tenancy agreement*?
If both of these apply click ‘yes’ – but read the notes below first.
- If the section 20 notice was given to you at the same time as, or after your tenancy agreement was signed, your answer should be ‘no.’
- For the notice to have been valid it must have been completed properly and contain all the prescribed information.
Note also that even if your landlord did give you a proper section 20 notice at the proper time and your first tenancy agreement was for six months or more – if you know for sure that they would be unable to prove this, click ‘no.’
