    Section 8 eviction help please

    My tenant fell over two months in arrears on a periodic Assured Shorthold Tenancy so I eventually issued a Section 8 in September 2018. She then made good some of the arrears and has continued to pay plus contribute towards the arrears. She has now missed two payments and is back in significant arrears. Do I need to reissue a Section 8 or can I still give her notice within the original? Thanks for your help.

    If she owed two months rent when the notice was served and still owes two month's rent when the case goes to court, the grounds are met, so the original notice can still be used.
    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).

        Housing Act 1988 S8(3)(c) says that a S8 notice is valid for 12 months from date of service.

        You have already given notice and do not need to do so again.

        I believe that you can start court action without any further communication with the tenant.

          No, you can go straight to court for possession.
          Google PCOL or use a specialist service.
