    Er, why did the rent arrears slide to this extent? As soon as one month's rent is unpaid, L should be on to T (failing which serve a s.8 Notice).

      doesnt it have to be 2 months outstanding

      further, she has been missing for months, no ones seen her

      should i still issue a section 8? shall i issue a section 21 aswell?

        Not "in arrears". For ground 8 under s.8, in the case of a monthly rent, there must be at least two months' rent unpaid [i.e. not "in arrears"]. If month1's is unpaid, and month2's is not paid on the due date, L can- the very next day (when the rent's one month and one day in arrears)- proceed on the basis that two months' rent payments have fallen due and still remain unpaid.
