i have been issuing Section 21's as part of the AST for about 4 years now and i give all my prospective tenants the AST to read several days before signing. only once in all that time has anyone asked me what it meant - even "alleged" Tenancy Support Workers" dont seem to get it. I think this discussion has been very academic.
You could ask the LA if they have another place to rent, as you don't really want to be left out in the cold. Try and go to their office and speak to the senior letting person. Maybe, they can make a decision without her approval.
Now your last comment, "I think they are looking at a six months valid time." Six months from when? Date of issue or date of possession?
Doesn't this just risk a 6 monthly rolling "Sword of Damocles"?
I think this discussion has been very academic.
The things I would discuss with a legal advisor would be –
1. whether the December letter negates the s21
2. whether the LA have implied that the s21 will not be activated, or has been invalidated
3. The confusion around the possession date
What do you think?
Might do that on Monday, check the situation, and discuss a way forward, either finding us a way to stay on or an alternative....
I will then follow up with a letter to make sure we have something in writing.
Sound about right?
