Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, how are you today?
My name is ***** ***** I am going to see if I can assist you with your query. Let me just read your first post. I may need to ask you additional questions after I have read your initial post.
Just Answer is a question and answer website - the experts here cannot take your case on, but we can give advice and guidance on what you can do in relation to your legal issue.
Do you want help to find a solicitor in your area? If yes, please give me your postcode.
Or do you want to know which notice to serve on your tenant yourself? If yes, please let me know whether the tenant has breached the tenancy agreement, e.g. in rent arrears, or whether you simply want your property back?
Yes, it is always wisest to use a solicitor when serving notice. It is important to ensure that you use the correct notice and grounds. E.g. £2k is high arrears, but if it is not two months worth of rent, then a s8, ground 8 claim, isn't going to get the tenant moving any quicker than a s21.
You can find a solicitor here: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk
All the solicitors on the above database as regulated solicitors, you search via your postcode and for 'housing' or 'property' solicitors.
You can also read more about the process of serving notice yourself, at the following link, which includes both s8 and s21 notices, with links to the relevant forms.
Possession claims can be done online too at www.possessionclaim.gov.uk
