Yet again, a new template Notice of Seeking Possession (NSP) for assured tenants has been issued on a bank holiday with no prior warning. The changes are to take into account the new Breathing Space debt scheme which came into force on 4 May 2021 as well.   

Landlords will need to amend their template NSPs and re-serve NSPs served at the end of last week. Do see the ebriefing by our recently joined housing litigation partner Suzanne Gregson which explains in more detail and contains the link to the new template. The secure tenancy template NSP has not been updated - for reasons unknown!
