The grounds that may be used are set out in Schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988 (although reason 14A can only be used by company owners). They are divided into compelling and discretionary reasons. The first five compelling reasons are the “reasons for notice”, with the landlord having to inform the tenant in writing before the start of the lease that he wishes to repossess this reason in the future. For reasons 1 and 2, the Tribunal is free to waive the duty of notice if it is fair and cheap. The wording of the land does not prohibit the use of land if the owner wishes to sell (provided he lived there before the current lease). During the fixed term of a Tenancy Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) or during an Assured Tenancy, the lessor may only distribute to you if it has breached the rental agreement and has “reasons” to do so. They must send you a written “Section 8 Notice of Termination” (or “Notice of Ownership”) stating the reasons they wish to evict you. If you do not agree with his statement of reasons and you decide to stay in the property, he can apply for a property order by the court. You have the right to defend this claim and you may do so in writing and/or in person in court. The court may delay the date you have to leave your home. The extra time the court can give you depends on the reason or reason your landlord is using. First of all, you don`t need to evacuate your tenant through a termination if you both agree that you are happy to terminate the rental agreement. You can arrange a mutual discount and thus end the rental.

If, up to the date of the hearing, the tenant has reduced his delay below the amount indicated, the property is not granted for this reason. However, it was decided that it was not legitimate to defer a right to ownership for reason 8 in order to allow a tenant to reduce arrears below the eight-week threshold, except in exceptional circumstances. Arrears due to maladministration of housing allowances are not considered an exceptional circumstance. [15] Depending on the reason your landlord used, you can ask the court again to postpone the date you have to leave. For example, if you can now pay off your arrears within a reasonable period of time. A lessor who wishes to notify a communication about the property under section 8 must give tenants at least two months` notice.
