Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
You need to serve a Section 21/8 notice
As Landlord you must give a least 2 months notice. This 2 months takes effect from the next rental period billing/
Then the tenant has 2 months to move out
If they do not then and only then can you take proceedings for possession
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Great, thank you. So I don't need to refer to the rent being under paid, I can just reasonably serve a 21/8 notice with 2 months notice to move out. If he then doesn't move out, the proceedings for possession would just be based on him having been given the correct notice and notice period and not having moved out...? My tenant has mental health difficulties and has been threatening towards me in the past so I'd just like to make it all as straight forward as possible. Thanks for your quick reply!
Yes you can serve a Section 21 and just ask them to move out. That is because the main tenancy agreement fixed term has ended.
Therefore you can serve a Section 21 to seek possession
Does that help?
