I was served with a section 21 eviction notice by a letting agency, who are representing the executors of a will, which gives them power of attorney to sell the house, therefore, de facto my landlord. However, they will not reveal who they are, which is a breach of section 1 of the 1985 Landlords and Tenants act. Is it legal for them to use section 21, without revealing their identity as landlord

Hi, thanks for posting in our forum.

The rules surrounding service of section 21 notices are quite complex and you should take the notice and tenancy agreement to Citizens Advice or a solicitor for the benefit of legal advice. You could also contact Shelter for free advice at:

All the best.
