    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

        Hi all,

        I would be grateful for any advice:

        I'm a landlord as follows:

        AST - commenced 12/04/2021
        6 month fixed term, now contractual periodic (has not been renewed).
        Tenant 1
        Tenant 2
        (No children)
        Guarantor (relation of Tenant 1)...

        I don't want to rain on everyone's parade, but I do not wait for tenants to move out before marketing the property, and I sign the new tenancy agreement providing the current tenant has not attempted to rescind the notice/everything seems to point to them leaving, when they said they would. A 6 week...

        The last 20 years may have been the 'golden years' for BTL. There is more regulation & higher taxation on BTLs; mortgage costs are going up; tenants are getting more rights & EPC C is coming.

        The stock market is the place to go instead - £20k per year in an ISA means all tax is...

        Thanks for the reply. This is a different case.
        The defendants are asking to set aside. Any paperwork sent to me has come from the courts only and not them.

        I've provided the defendants and the court with paperwork in preparation for the hearing to set aside....

        I still can't think of a better thing to invest in even given all the new regulations. The lessons i have learnt are:-
        1) Never let to people on benefits.
        2) Don't over leverage your borrowing.
        3) Have access to spare funds for unexpected things like a new boiler being required or...

        The two I have done were quite informal - the tenants didn't show up so I had to wait quite a while as they give every opportunity for them to arrive late.

        I was shown into a room with the judge sitting at a big table and offered a seat on the other side of the table. The judge looked at...

        +1 on the above (post #17).

        To item 1, I would add: 'Risk'.

        Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?
