A Section 8 notice comes into play when tenants breach the terms of the tenancy. Collaborating with tenants to address issues like rent arrears or establishing a repayment plan can potentially avoid the need for eviction.

For Section 8 notices, landlords need to complete a “Notice seeking possession of a property let on an assured tenancy or an assured agricultural occupancy,” specifying the terms of the tenancy breached. The notice period can vary between 2 weeks and 2 months based on the nature of the violation. Proof of notice is crucial.

In case tenants do not vacate by the specified date, landlords can proceed to apply for a possession order or, if a Section 21 notice was issued, an accelerated possession order.
