How to complete a Section 8 notice

Hi,

 I’m planning on serving my tenants a S8 on grounds 8 and 11 using Form 3 as found here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/assured-tenancy-forms#form-3

I have a few questions:

1. Can I just insert extra lines for #1? as there isn’t much room to put the tenant’s names

2. On #3 there’s a section which states “as reads” – can I just copy and paste sections 8 and 11 from https://www.legalforlandlords.co.uk/section-8-grounds-for-eviction/ on the lines or use an extra sheet?

3. For #4 I’m planning on stating tenant is more than 2 months in rent arrears and explaining that the tenant has consistently made late payments.

4. For #5 court proceedings will not begin after, I’m planning on using 18 days from postage to allow delivery.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Peter

Sorry, one last question, the tenancy contract has the names down as (e.g.):

 James Brown

 Sue Brown

On the S8, is it OK to use 

James Brown 

Sue Brown

Or do the names have be preceded by Mr and Mrs?

Thank you

Hi, I’m a new landlord and my first Tennant has been horrible.  Every payment was late and the last 3 month have been non payment.  The contact is up in two weeks I served notice 2 months in advance but I know he’s not going to leave.  So I filled out a section 8.  He is saying it’s nit a reasonable request to make him leave and be paid up arrears in 2 weeks.  He says he’s intending to pay but I just want him to leave.  Will my section 8 be valid if he starts to pay in parts of his arrears???
