I’ve rented a flat privately via a letting agency for the past 3.5 years. My rental payments were always on time or slightly early until 3 months ago, when I became ill. I’m now 6 weeks behind with my rent. On Friday 20th May I had a Section 21 notice shoved into my letterbox. My rent falls due on 20th each month. The S21 notice is dated 20th May and says I must leave by 18th July. I spoke to Shelter previously and I’m sure they said you have to be given two full months from the date of the end of a tenancy period or something like that.
Does anyone know the law around this? I’m not well enough to move yet. What happens if I don’t vacate on 18th July? Letting agent said if I don’t he will bring police officers to forcibly remove me.
