    Section 8 section 21 or just plain notice to leave!

    Still, faffing about which notice to serve on my tenant, any advice much appreciated. She moved in on the 2/07/07 (6 month Short assured tenancy) and the rent is £80 a week... I spoke to one of my solicitor's this week and he said to get specialist advice as they can throw it out of court for the slightest mistake. She currently owe's over £800, I wonder an I better off givingnotice to quit section 8 or section 21 and what reasons to sight and dte to put..... Do I need to do anything else!, sorry I'm so useless

    Rent is weekly? If there's no rent book, you are in breach of s.4 of LTA 1985.

        Issue both and be done with, if tenant pays to get rent under 8 weeks tell Judge that you also have section 21 and they will usually grant possession rather than waste more time later.

            I'm worried about this now, I don't want to get into trouble for my tennant not having a rent book. Is it they're word against mine . What if they decide to stir up trouble and say they were never given a rent book, even though they were, who can prove what.
