If you receive a notification in section 8, don`t ignore it. You need to take care of it, as well as your communication in section 21 – and the steps are different. It`s easy to assume that your landlord knows the law and that the section 21 notification you received is correct. But in fact, the owners and their agents make a lot of mistakes. It is possible that there is something so wrong with the notification that a judge would not give a property order if you challenge it, if or if your landlord goes to court. It is therefore worth checking your communication very carefully to see if you have one or more reasons to dispute it. You should also consider getting legal advice at this point. See legal advice.

In particular, the owners adopt a section 8 – mention of the search for the property. At the same time, they will go to court and apply for a property order. The order of ownership requires the tenant to surrender on the date indicated. The date is drawn on the basis of the grounds for eviction provided by the owner. For legal reasons, such as rent arrears, the delay can be up to two weeks. In case of serious antisocial behavior, it can even have an immediate effect. Your landlord cannot evict you if they do not initiate legal proceedings within 6 months of the notice referred to in section 21. If your landlord still wants to distribute you, they must give you a new section 21 notification.
If your landlord gave you the “How to Rent” guide along with your post in section 21, they may have given you the wrong version. You can get help from your nearest citizens` council to find out if you can challenge the message in section 21. If you`re renting from a private landlord (not the Council or a housing company), you probably have some type of lease called a secure short-build contract. The information in this guide applies only to you if your rental is a secure short-range rental agreement.
