I am a commercial landlord. A tenant, with whom I only have

Customer Question

I am a commercial landlord. A tenant, with whom I only have an oral agreement, did not pay the rent for 2 months and I issued a claim for possession of the premises at the local county court. The case was heard today and the rent arrears now amounts to 6 months. The judge said I should have issued a notice to quit under section 25 of the landlord and tenant act and has directed me to show cause to the contrary or have the case thrown out. I understood I would only need a section 25 notice for persistent late payment as it requires a 6 month notice period. Is the judge right? Kind regards, ***** *****
