New Section 8 Notice

With thanks to our friends at Nearly Legal for alerting us to new regulations made on the 23rd March 2016.

As from 6th April 2016 a new prescribed form will be required when you serve a Section 8 of the Housing Act 1988 Notice.  As a prescribed form for any such notices on or after that date you must use the prescribed form.  Remember this is the notice you serve when ending the tenancy typically for rent arrears or other breaches of tenancy.

The Section 13 notice has also been changed.

The amendments are made by Regulation . Essentially the amendments are minor and to correct formatting and drafting errors and in respect of the Section 8 Notice to refer to the new form 6A prescribed form for giving notice under Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988.  They should not however be ignored.

We are looking at updating the notices within our document vault and we will blog again once the new notices are included.
