How to complete a Section 8 notice
7:25 pm
Peter Jones


 I’m planning on serving my tenants a S8 on grounds 8 and 11 using Form 3 as found here

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 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.

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
