Whilst 81% of tenants are satisfied with their landlords, with an estimated 1.4 million private landlords in the UK and nearly 5 million private rented homes homes it leaves a substantial number of dissatisfied tenants (I'll let you do the maths!).

The latest survey confirms that the majority of tenants chose to terminate the tenancy themselves but, based on the figures, with nearly 30% of landlords having to take action to terminate the tenancy themselves, it remains that the landlord needs to take care to prepare and serve the correct possession notice.
