Section 21 eviction
You're now entitled to 3 months’ notice. This won’t apply if you got your notice before 26 March 2020.
But all court action for eviction has been suspended until the end of June, so your landlord can't take things further at the moment.
What is a section 21?
A section 21 notice is the form your landlord must give you to start the process to end your assured shorthold tenancy.
You can only be sent a section 21 notice to end an assured shorthold tenancy.

Moving out before the end of the notice
You will still be liable to pay rent until the section 21 notice expires if you move out before its end date.
If you want to end your tenancy before the section 21 expires, you'll still need to follow the correct legal process to do this. How you can end your tenancy depends on whether it is fixed term or periodic.
