    If you just want the tenant to leave for no reason other than you want the property back, you probably can't use s8.
    You need some actual grounds with that notice.

    No, only s21.

    "Accelerated" is more marketing speak than actual, usually.

    However what grounds for s8 please?

    Totally agree, but the father in law made the agreement via a solicitor with this exact situation in mind, by what i can understand he wanted the house to go to his son and not his soon to be wife and her extended family, seems very reasonable and if only others thought about such things in the same...

    New member here. As I believe there's no legal definition of "furnished", would people offer their opinions as to what they consider the minimum items for a furnished letting? Is there a doifference between "furnished" and "fully furnished"?
    If it makes...

    Then with the above in my humble opinion she will eventually have to leave but its how to get this to happen which will be your next move. I assume you will be seeking out the best solicitor for the forthcoming battle.
