SECTION 8 / SECTION 21 NOTICE

Section 8 Notice

You can use a Section 8 notice if your tenants have broken the terms of the tenancy agreement such as not paid their rent for a period of 2 months or more or other breaches of the tenancy agreements.

Evicting a tenant using the Section 8 is very different to using Section 21 and carry some pitfalls. It is the route to be used if Section 21 is not an option available to you. For example, if you cannot meet the requirements of Section 21, you could use the section route.

Section 21 notice of seeking possession

Using the Section 21 Notice is often more straight forward and can be used in situations such as:

  • after a fixed term tenancy ends – if there’s a written tenancy agreement
  • during a tenancy with no fixed end date – known as a ‘periodic’ tenancy

There are certain circumstances when Section 21 notice cannot be used. If any of the following apply you cannot use a Section 21 Notice:

  • it’s less than 6 months since the tenancy started
  • the fixed term has not ended, unless there’s a clause in the contract/tenancy agreement which allows you to do this
  • the property is categorised as a house in multiple occupation (HMO) and you did not have the relevant license
  • the council has served an improvement notice on the property in the last 6 months
  • the council has served a notice in the last 6 months that says it will do emergency works on the property
  • the tenancy started after April 2007 and you have not put the tenants’ deposit in a deposit protection scheme
  • you do not have a landlord licence – if you live in Wales
  • if you are facing a claim for Housing Disrepair, you could be prevented from evicting your tenant at all. If you are facing a claim for Housing Disrepair, you can speak to us to Defend you against such claims.

You also cannot use a Section 21 notice if you have not given the tenants copies of:

  • the property’s Energy Performance Certificate
  • a current gas safety certificate for the property and provided a copy at the time they occupied the property
  • the government’s ‘How to rent’ guide
  • Prescribed deposit protection information

Serving a valid notice is very important to get your tenant to leave by a fixed date. In most cases, a valid Section 8 Notice or Section 21 Notice served by a solicitor on behalf of a landlord is all it takes for them to pay up or leave.

PROBLEM TENANTS?

A problem tenant who is not paying rent or causing damage to your property or using your property for illegal purposes can be stressful and costly. If you want your property back from your tenant for non-payment of rent or for any other reason and you have been unable to persuade them to leave voluntarily then you are likely need a Possession Order from the Court to take your property back.

In order to start the eviction process you need to serve the relevant notice on your tenant and give them a deadline to leave your property. If your tenant does not leave by the deadline stated in the notice, you will need to start Court action to evict your tenant.

The Court Order will provide a date by which they must leave. If your tenant does not comply with the Possession Order then you can instruct a Bailiff or a High Court Enforcement Officer to evict your tenant from your property.

THE EVICTION PROCESS

Service Notice

Serve the relevant Notice and provide a statutory deadline by which time they must vacate the property.

Court Hearing

Attend hearing on your behalf to present you case.

Start Court Proceedings

If your tenant has not complied then start court action to obtain a possession order from the Court.

Bailiff Eviction

If your tenant still has not left by the deadline set by the Court, we will instruct a bailiff.

Prepare Evidence

The Court will set a hearing date. We will file evidence with the Court before the hearing date.
