It is important when a landlord gives a tenant a Section 8 notice and intends to seek possession using one of the grounds contained in Schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988, Form 3 must be completed accurately. Without a valid section 8 notice, the court cannot order possession under the grounds for possession. Depending on how the tenant pays rent, the amount of arrears outstanding before a claim for possession can be submitted differ. It is crucial you insert the correct amount of arrears and review the form thoroughly before submitting. Where there is doubt, seek legal advice.
