The following is a list of the grounds that can be used to seek repossession using a Section 8 Notice. We have “excluded” those grounds that are only for specific circumstances. We have also excluded those grounds used for Rent Arrears as you can automatically generate the correct Section 8 Notice for a tenant in rent arrears by clicking here.
IN SEVEN OF THE GROUNDS, THE NOTICE PERIOD IS AT LEAST TWO MONTHS, WE THEREFORE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU ISSUE A SECTION 21 NOTICE BY CLICKING HERE THIS TAKES THE SAME TIME BUT THIS ROUTE TO REPOSSESSION HAS A FAR GREATER CHANCE OF SUCCESS.
Some of the Grounds listed are only available if contained in your tenancy agreement. If they are not in your Agreement, you cannot rely on them – WE THEREFORE RECOMMEND YOU USE A SECTION 21 by clicking here.
Some grounds only require TWO WEEKS notice, one allows Court action immediately!!
DON’T WORRY, OUR FORMS AUTOMATICALLY CALCULATE THE CORRECT LENGTH OF NOTICE, DEPENDING ON THE CHOICES YOU MAKE.
To use one of the 17 grounds below, tick the box or boxes that apply to your circumstances – i.e. if your tenant is causing a nuisance to neighbours tick box 14. In the text box that opens, please type in a brief description of the problems, for example:-
“On 15th June 2010 complaints were received from your neighbours that excessive noise from your property was causing nuisance and annoyance. You were advised at that time that this would not be tolerated.
On 18th July 2010 further incidents of loud noise were reported by your neighbours.”
