Sally Blackmore acts for the successful landlords in the Court of Appeal – Instructed by Edward Harte Solicitors

In a judgment handed down on 23 June 2021, the Court of Appeal has concluded that Regulation 2 of The Assured Shorthold Tenancy Notices and Prescribed Information (England) Regulations 2015 does not apply to tenancies granted before 1 October 2015.

This means that landlords with properties let under such tenancies do not have to serve an Energy Performance Certificate or comply with requirements in the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 in order to be able to rely upon a s.21 notice.

Sally provides her notes on the case below
