    Careful, someone may bite thread respondents’ heads off if answers aren’t to someone’s liking!

        I second PaulF, if you are unsure (& inexperienced) you can end up getting it wrong. The tenant doesn't have to/probably won't tell you if you've got it wrong they'll just ignore you. When you go to court you'll lose & have to start all over again thus costing you more in loss of rent etc.

        I say this not to be patronising but from bitter experience, I went down this road about 2 years ago and learnt the hard way, it was a sobering (and somewhat humiliating experience) having to sit opposite 'smug tenant' and their 'incredibley righteous housing aid advisor' only to be told that due to a technicality my request for posession was not granted. Since then I have been careful enough in my referencing of tenants not to need to do this again. My loss whilst annoying, irritating, sickening and a whole host of other things was a good kick up the backside and I have made sure since then to be careful in future about my choice of tenants and to do my homework properly in relation to my rights/responsibilities as a Landlord.

        Contact someone who knows what they are doing if you are unsure it will save you in the long run.

          [QUOTE=RichieP] Ground 8
          Both at the date of the service of the notice under section 8 of this Act relating to the proceedings for possession and at the date of the hearing -

          (a ) if rent is payable weekly or fortnightly, at least eight weeks' rent is unpaid;
          (b) if rent is payable monthly, at least two months' rent is unpaid;
          (c) if rent is payable quarterly, at least one quarter's rent is more than three months in arrears; and
          (d) if rent is payable yearly, at least three months' rent is more than three months in arrears;

          and for the purpose of this ground "rent" means rent lawfully due from the tenant.


          In your case, I assume it's part (b)?

          Hi I have now prepared a Section 8 notice as per your kind instructions - unfortunately I am still confused about what to put in Section 3 'your landlord intends to seek possession on ground 8 in section 2 of the ................ which reads: -


          What do I type in here? Do I type in this ....."Both at the date of the service of the notice under section 8 of this Act relating to the proceedings for possession and at the date of the hearing -

          (b) if rent is payable monthly, at least two months' rent is unpaid;

          and for the purpose of this ground "rent" means rent lawfully due from the tenant"????

          I will be sending this tomorrow with a covering letter to the tenant. Do I also send one straight to the court as well? many thanks again for all your help.

            What you have there is fine. You don't send a copy to the court, but keep a copy of the Notice and the letter.

            When the Notice expires, you get the forms from the court, or cortservice website. You fill them in and send 3 copies to the court.

              Not to put a damper on things, but insurance is for accidents / unforseen occurences / trees falling on building / cars.- etc

              Insurance does not cover for deliberate acts which caused a fault.
              Thats why why drill round holes in bricks, put a plug in it then screw though the plug.

              I have noticed that one of the 3 blocks has some studs hammered into the brickwork in one corner. There are also cracks running down the bricks. I am guessing that these studs are markers made by an engineer at some point, suggesting a structural issue maybe.

              Within the service charge there is of course a charge for Insurance. Presume if any work ever needs doing it would come from that Insurance policy? And then possibly an increase in future Insurance cost

              Thanks for the response. Just wondering how I am not a tenant here though? Since there is a verbal agreement, I have been paying rent to her and she does not live in the property....

              by Yasmenaax
              Hi there,

              I moved into a property 2-3 months ago which was subletted to me by a girl named on the main tenancy contract of the property. I handed over a deposit (which is currently unprotected) and have paid rent on time. She today decided to give me notice to leave, giving me only 2 weeks...

              by HantsAgent
              Indeed. And my worry for the tenants here is that this technically means their tenancy could have continued for an effective additional two months (unable to give a valid NtQ until the beginning of the next tenancy period and that notice having to be a full tenancy period)

              Is anyone aware of anything giving tenants some leeway if they have to isolate and it takes them beyond of their fixed term?

              It would only be an insurance issue if the freeholder has an adequate policy covering it. The best thing is for the freeholder or managing agent to instruct an engineer who will put movement detectors on the property and see if there is any movement. It could be historical.

              All leaseholders...

              by landlord-man
              HaHa - I had already planned for that.

              My power sockets are behind a locked cupboard so they can only access the coin meters.

              I also put the communal wifi router power socket in a locked cupboard - otherwise, they could add an adapter socket to the router mains and run an extension...

              i have a small hmo non licensable due to locality. It had a meter on the washing machine when I bought it but I disconnected it. I m finding that 1 tenant is doing 2 - 3 washes every day and so obviously is taking advantage of it and also hogging it. I stated in their tenancy agreements fair...
