How many weeks/months in arrears?

Just 2 weeks but I don't know where this going. I want to act sooner rather than later maybe by getting the rent element of his benefit paid direct to me.
He has only been a tenant since 7th Nov 2015
Ok. Sadly the tenant must be 2 months or 8 weeks in arrears before you can serve a notice to quit (Section 8 notice).
But until the tenant is 2 months in arrears you cant seek any notice.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
