Hi, has Notice already been served upon you?
Good Morning, a Notice served under Section 8, Ground 1 allows the landlord to recover possession of the property if it was his principal home. The Landlord must provide the tenant with two months written notice.
This would mean that the landlord would be able to recover possession of the property, during the term, if the correct Notice was served. In your case, provided the landlord was living in the premises, he would be able to claim possession of the said premises.
I seem to be having problems with the chat facility
Hi, the landlord would need to prove that he needs the property for his own use in order to be able to rely on Section 8, Ground 1
Hi. I note your concern, however, from my experience, Ground 1 of the Section 8 Notice can be used where a landlord (or his spouse) has occupied the dwelling as his only or principle home at some time, and having given notice of his intention to return, now wishes to do so. Successors in title may also use this ground provided they did not purchase the dwelling.
Therefore, provided that you have been notified that he may require the property, before signing the tenancy, the Landlord would be able to rely upon this ground.
