    section 8 answers please


    Just thought i'd ran these answers by the experts at LL!

    Are these suitable answers? I rarely do these evictions, but there is still several months prior to the end of the tenancy, so i cant evict via the s21 route at the moment.

    Feel free to recommend alternative answers if you wish.

    Thank you in advance! Happy New Year to you all too, you've been very helpful this year might i add, much appreciated!

    4. Give a full explanation of why each ground is being relied on:
    Ground 8
    Rent is payable every month, at the rate of £900 every month. There are arrears of £2100 at the date of this notice being over 2 months in arrears.

    Ground 10
    There are arrears of rent of £2149 at the date of this notice.

    Ground 11
    The tenant hasn’t paid any rent from his wage towards his arrears. Housing benefit covers part of the rent, but he works and earns a good amount of wage and he has refused to cover any of the arrears from this wage.

    I would think your 8 & 10 are fine.

    In my professional capacity, I would put much more detail in 11 (indeed it would be by far the biggest explanation because each payment due is different) however, as I guess you are not expecting to have to rely on 11, maybe what you have put is okay too.

      These are very interesting comments, one of my councils (South West) told me they had to stop these services unless in public areas.

      I have a tenant who has reported that he can here rats in the walls and ceiling of his 4th floor apartment. He says there are other complaints on the tenants facebook group. I have messaged the maintenance company (Name removed) but they are not replying. Just wanted to check who is liable, I'm assuming...

      I contacted my council and the rat man came out a couple of hours later with a T shaped tube thing full of blue grain which he put behind some bushes in the garden. It was free. I've not seen any rats since but the blue grain is going down. Apparently slugs and mice will also eat the bait....

      You can send the information to court quoting the case number and ask them to include it in the bundle. If it's a mandatory ground the information will make little if any difference to the outcome.

      I made a possession claim online on 07/07/2020. Obviously this was stayed and then on 21/07 I sent a query on the online possession claim portal to ask and query what to do if I want to reactivate my claim. No reply at all from courts. Via this forum I received good advice on the reactivation...

      Thank you for the suggestions. Although the neighbour did something with the pipe so the water isn't flowing here directly but I am not convinced that's been fixed properly as he was only concerned about the angle of the pipe and not the fact that it wasn't going underground. He seems to have done it...

      Try "nearly legal" section 21 checker. Dates look ok.

      Some tenants if asked nicely might agree earlier exit.
