Section 21 notices for assured shorthold tenancies: joint tenants

On 6 April 2022 Shelter Legal updated its advice to clarify that in the case of a joint tenancy the prevailing view confirms the common law position that a valid section 21 notice must contain the names of all joint tenants and be served on at least one of them. It states that in the unreported case of Hacking v Jones (2012), Croydon County Court decided that the tenant is all of the persons who share the joint and several liability, and the tenant is correctly named by inclusion of all of those names.
