I was 3 weeks late with my rent and on the 3 rd week my landlord

Resolved Question:

I was 3 weeks late with my rent and on the 3 rd week my landlord served me with a section 21 eviction notice which I thought could only be used at then end of a tenancy.
In any event I thought he should use a section 8 notice and only after 2 months of being late.
I have paid the arrears but he says the notice to quit stands
