The Government does not require landlords to record centrally that they have served a Section 21 notice to their tenants and we have no plans to make them do so.

However, we collect data through the English Housing Survey on tenants’ reasons for moving out of a private sector property. According to the 2016-17 Private Rented Sector report the majority of tenancies are ended by the tenant themselves or by mutual consent,

rather than by the landlord serving an eviction notice.
