Thank you for your query.
There are a number of grounds which a Landlord can rely on under section 8. Depending on the ground, the length of notice can range from 2 weeks to 2 months. For rent arrears, the notice period is 2 weeks (14 days).
You won't have to leave your home straightaway. If your section 8 notice is valid, your landlord will need to go to court to evict you.
You might be able to challenge your eviction. If you have a good reason why you shouldn't leave your home as you have described above, you can defend the notice which is called 'defending possession'.
Is there anything else I can clarify for you?
This can only happen once a possession order is granted. You have not reached that stage yet so there is nothing to worry about.
Would you like some helpful information online about this?
No, the Notice will be sent by the Court usually by normal post.
Does this help?
The notice is still deemed served but you may then make an application to Court to suspend the Warrant on this basis.
Will that be all today?
You can make an emergency application to Court. I hear what you are saying but you will need a Court Order to suspend any Warrant or action.
You should stay in regular contact with the Court if you feel that something may be lost in the post.
Sure, here you go:
It's a pleasure.
