    I want to serve Section 8 : looking for the 17 grounds in the Housing Act 1988?

    Hi.

    I want to serve notice for Section 8 for my troublesome tennant who has not paid the last 2 months rent.
    Ive downloaded the Section 8 form and the 'Serving Section 8' PDF forms from this website.
    When citing the grounds for serving notice, the form says i need to quote, (ideally copy and paste) the exact words from the Housing Act 1988.
    Ive got the weblink for the Housing Act (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/acts/a..._19880050_en_1), but i cant find the 17 grounds under which i can serve notice.

    Question:
    Can anyone provide the exact weblink for these 17 grounds, so i can copy and paste the precise words for grounds 8, 10 and 11?

    Grateful for anyone who has this info!

    Thanks.

    1. Yes. All legislation (inc. updates- deletions, amendments, and insertions made by later legislation) can be accessed at http://www.statutelaw.gov.uk/Home.aspx.

    2. There are in fact eighteen grounds for s.8 possession (1-17 plus 14A)!

    3. The grounds are in Schedule 2 to the 1988 Act, here: http://www.statutelaw.gov.uk/legResu...tDocId=2128236
