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

      I hope you aren't referring to me? I really appreciate all the help some people! have given me. There is no need to be sarcastic or nasty!

        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.
