Section 8 Notice
Section 8 Notice is designed to assist landlords facing challenging situations with tenants. A crucial component of property management, the Section 8 Notice is a legal tool used to address breaches of tenancy agreements.
A Section 8 notice can be served on your tenant when they are either in arrears and / or in breach of the terms of the lease. The tenant must either be 2 months in arrears or 1 months in arrears and be in breach of other the terms of the lease.
The section 8 notice must either give 2 weeks, 1 month or 2 months’ notice, dependent on the reasons for the breach, before court action can be started. It is therefore very important to ensure that the correct timescales and reasons are given.
Other grounds other than rent arrears, for example are:
Ground 12: breach of Tenancy Agreement
Ground 13: Damage to property
Ground 15: Damage to furniture
*Fixed fee service includes the review of the documents and the notice.
