    S8 Fall Back

    Hello all,

    I am awaiting a decesion on a s21 served some weeks ago now, I am not anticipating any issue however if it gets rejected can I then claim posession via the s8, note that

    1 - The contract went periodic on the 10th Feb 07.
    2 - The T has been persistantly late in paying rent since Dec 07, note that she is owes me £1100 in back rent.
    3 - The T is not on HB but is a single mum.
    If so what ground would I need to use and when could I start proceedings, finally does a s8 always get heard in court.

    Thank you

    Rejected? S21 cannot be rejected unless improperly served/wrong dates or whatever.

    Provided all is in order, she must move out ultimately. S8 is second best in your situation.

      Lorenzo, the dates on my s21 are correct, I am perhaps concerned over nothing, I made sure that i followed all guidance notes.

      Simple things like the fact that the s21 was served during an AST and expired during periodic but gave 2 clear months, will the judge pick up on the fact that the contract is now periodic etc, etc all cause me concern.

      Thanks

      • Erroneous Change Of Occupancy Fee
        Sonofahod
        Hi There,

        I am planning to move out of a shared rental property in March. Foxtons, the agency managing the property want to charge me a £300 "Change of Occupancy" administration fee as we have not reached the full term of the tenancy. I realise that the fee covers both me leaving...

        Your information is severely deficient,
        Of course a move out inspection can be chargedeven with no move in report.
        You accepted LA fees by proceeding with Application.
        Deposit ADR cannot be used to contest Agency fees.

        HI - our boiler broke yesterday - our landlord is currently waiting for a quote for a new boiler - however one of the problems we have is that she lives abroad. It consequently means she's able to speak to people in the uk about any sort of business matter for 3 hours in the afternoon. I'm wondering...

        I live in the US at the moment, 7 hours behind the UK, yes its difficult BUT when my boiler broke I had someone out within 2 days, one thing she should have in place is a boiler cover or she should have tradesmen lined up who she trusts so if something goes wrong she can get in touch with them immediately,...

        Hi - I attended court a few weeks ago, we used several grounds in the section 8, the mandatory one being the rent arrears, they didnt put a defence in, show up or pay so the judge just asked for proof I had served the section 8 (proof of postage receipts from the PO) and an up to date rent statement...
