    which is priorty section 8 or 21(a) and what court papers do i complete?


    I have served section 8 dated 4/04/11 expires 21/04/11 but agent issued 21(a) on the 4/03/11 until the 9/05/11.

    which one do i go to court with which court form? I have form N5 and a N119? please advise as I am acting on my own behalf.

    Thank you for any advice.

    Section 21 route would likely be quickest IF the notice was served correctly and the deposit protection regs have been complied with.

    However if you use the Accelerated procedure you cannot claim rent arrears and will have to claim these separately through the courts.

    Use form N5B for the accelerated procedure.

      Good Afternoon everyone,
      Its my first post on the site and probably like most first posts on here I am asking for help !
      Without going into too much detail my tenant has decided to stop paying his rent , after I gave him notice to leave, and ignore Section 8 and Section 21 notices sent by...

      I think I'm going to down the housing solicitor / eviction company route.
      Its going to cost me but this is really bringing me down now in all honesty . I've got a daughter and Mom with very serious health issues and I need to concentrate on them rather than a jerk who's taking me for a ride !...

      Could not agree more, but given the reluctance of the social sector to '' do the right thing'', we will always be in a battle to get them to house vulnerable people.

      What a sad state of affairs....

      My daughter is a tenant in a house and has been for 7years without any problems for 6 of the years. Last year she had to give up working full time due to health reasons. Since then they've got worse, she suffered a blood clot which leaves her breathless and can't have oxygen as she has a gas hob. She...

      The problem here is that the woman was not vulnerable and thus chose the private option. She is now in the wrong sector ,and the landlord is not trained to address such problems....

      Sad to say it but i would evict them now...... it is coming our way and when it hits the reasons you have will not qualify, as i suspect many others will and only time will show them up in this forum and the wider press.

      Vulnerable individuals should really not be in the PRS, but due to...

      I do JKO. The price of electric is scary. I have put gas into one of my all electrics but one let recently in BH3 went purely on location (and it's summer)- previous tenant left after 2.5 years mainly due to proposed electric cost.
      My freeholder has not applied for gas to be installed to the...

      You guys might remember my magnum opus renovating my first flat here in Reading from early 2018 to half way through 2019.

      As shown in the title though, no-one seems to stay longer than their lease. The first lady asked to be released in April 2020, as she was flying home afraid of Covid....

      The things I would ask, and try and get answers to are:

      1. Can the property be mortgaged (even with the help of a specialist mortgage broker) if no, then the market for re-selling in the future is limited.
      2. Is the premium for insuring the property more than a traditional,
