    The idea is that an owner-occupier wishing to let on AST/SAT can reserve in advance the right to recover the premises, just as in s.21 but with no time constraints re Notice periods- although neither procedure can result in a Possession Order that operates earlier than expiry of the Letting Agreement's fixed term.
    Can you clarify?

    Both s21(1)(b) and s8g1 require 2 months notice, and neither procedure can result in a Possession Order that operates earlier than expiry of the Letting Agreement's fixed term.

    Whilst an s21(1)(b) can not be served before the commencement of a tenancy, a s8g1 can not be served after.

      Yes. Because any g1 Notice is (= ought to have been) served before the Letting Agreement begins, L has nothing further to serve before beginning possession proceedings. There is no 'Notice' period, unlike re s.21 and the ongoing LZ discussions re the point at which L can:
      a. begin proceedings;
      b. have a Court hearing; and
      c. obtain a Court Order.

      Also, of course, the 'six-month' rule does not apply if L is using g1.

      Finally, g1 does not 'require 2 months notice'. You might be thinking of s.8(4A)(a). When it mentions that period, it speaks of a s.8 Notice using another ground + g1; by definition, a Notice on g1 alone that is served pre-letting will have been served two months before proceedings (unless the fixed term is shorter than two months!)

        Not my mistake! To write principle when I mean principal would go against my principles, it came with the cut 'n' paste.

        I was really careful with that last bit.

          I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

          We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

          My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

          What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

          Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

          I humbly note...

          The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

          The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

          I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

          In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

          IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.
