    Section 8 eviction notice


    I have a tennant that has not paid rent for a number of months and want to issue a section 8 notice, is thare a template and what is the procedure if he doesn't leave? He is not communicating with me in any way.

    Yes, section 8 notices have a prescribed format and need to be completed in a specific way (laying out the grounds particularly).

    You then apply to the courts for repossession when the notice expires.
    Then there's a hearing.

    If you are unsure, it might be sensible to get professional help.
    Either a solicitor or someone who specialises in repossession.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).


      I am not a lawyer, nor am I licensed to provide any regulated advice. None of my posts should be treated as legal or financial advice.


        Do you use a letting agent or manage yourself? If a LA then they can sort the serving of S8 but not the rest (they'll peddle their own legal team).

          Looking for advice , I signed a 12 month rental with my boyfriend , we each paid 900 pounds deposit to the deposit company . He moved out 6 months later to live with another woman, but continued to pay half the rent until the lease finished. I have messages from him saying he did not want his deposit...

          This was a joint T, when any remaining deposit should have been paid to 'lead T' for onward distribution.
          I might suggest ex b/f may like to sue me for his share of remaining deposit, if I did not want to reimburse him 900. quid.

          Can anybody help please. I own a flat that is fully managed by a letting agency I’ve dealt with for 12 years. I received a letter from a debt collection agency asking me to ring them. I phoned them today and have found out there is an outstanding bill (which has been sold to the debt collection agency)...

          Ask B Gas for copy of who signed signed the supply Contract & date.
          Supply B Gas with copy of T dated AST and meter readings.
          You are liable for any unsubstaniated void periods. Ts were aware of your lack of experience.

        • necessary notices and permissions for a boiler relocation in a flat
          Hi all,

          I hope I chose the relevant forum to post my query to - please forgive me and correct me if I am wrong.

          My rental flat's (one of 22 'executive-style' flats in a 2-block development built in 1999) boiler stopped serving hot water to my tenants a week ago. I had a boiler...

          You are unlikely to get permission for a hole in the wall sooner than you can get a roofer to replace the roof vent.

          Thanks for the replies. The letting agent has said they absolutely did not put the bill in my name. It seems as if the previous tenant has put the bill in my name (from the tenancy agreement) including their arrears, which is why the bill is high for an empty flat for one month. Surely this is frau...

        • who is responsible for the broken fridge/freezer
          I moved in a flat last Tuesday. I found the fridge is not cool enough but the freezer works well. However, on Saturday the fridge/freezer didn't work. Foods in freezer began to thaw. The shelf in freezer is much warmer than the other part.

          I contacted with the agency and they said I should...

          If it is on the inventory and there is nothing to say that the T is responsible, then I would say it is the LL's responsibility.

          Personally I have only ever provided fridges and freezers on the basis that if they break, then the T repairs and the T can then take it away with them.

        • Possession Order after s8
          Tassie Girl
          Hi All

          Our tenants were given notice and we went to court to regain possession. This has been granted by the County Court and she was supposed to leave ysterday. While I believe the tenants have moved out, I also believe there are still a few odd belongings there. At what point can I (or...
