Section 21 protection warranty

Introduced as part of the Housing Act 1988, a Section 21 notice enables landlords to start the process of taking back possession of their property and evicting a tenant without providing a reason. However, issuing a Section 21 notice can lead to costly legal expenses and leave you with a vacant property.

That is why we offer Section 21 protection warranty to protect our landlords and their investments, should the worst happen. When you choose our Section 21 cover, you can rest easy knowing that if you ever needed to evict a tenant, you would receive comprehensive cover for related legal costs and support throughout the eviction process. Without this warranty, the legal costs would fall to the landlord, adding extra financial pressure when you might not even be receiving rental payments.

Tenant evictions can be stressful and unpleasant to deal with. When you choose Prospect, you know that our ARLA-qualified property managers are here to help you every step of the way and are likely to achieve a faster eviction than if you were to deal with it alone. We can also help you to secure an alternative tenant for your rental property as quickly as possible to reduce void periods and get you receiving regular rent payments again in no time at all.

Benefits to Section 21 Protection:

  • We cover the landlord if there are no rent arrears yet still grounds to evict a tenant.
  • Comprehensive cover of legal expenses for eviction proceedings following the correct issue of a section 21.
  • Available for six or 12 month periods (depending on the length of the tenancy agreement) and can easily be renewed.
  • All tenants and guarantors, if applicable, MUST pass Goodlord's full tenancy reference before renting your property, minimising the risk of a section 21 notice being required.

Please call our Property Management department on 0118 955 4747 to find out more about Section 21 protection.

I moved to Prospect from another Agency last year after a complete refurbishment of my flat ready to let and I am so glad I made the move! I am particularly impressed with Agnese and the way she is managing my property, very efficient, always cheerful and very helpful.
