Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
Courts are now dealing with possession orders, so you should contact the court dealing with you case and chase this alone to be dealt with.
If the rent arrears are now more than 6 minters you can serve a new s8 notice, that only has to give 4 eels notice to leave if arrears are 6 months long.
It should make no difference. However as the s21 has already been started so you just need to tomato court for the possession side, I would suggest doing that. Otherwise the s8 option, you would have to wait until they are 6;monyths in arrears, then serve notice then still apply for possession. So quicker to use existing s21 application.
Very sorry predictive typing. that should be “go to court”
If you serve as8 now, you would have to give 6 months notice, but once they are 6 months in rent arrears you only need to serve 4 weeks notice.
