It has been brought to our attention that there will be a new Section 8 form for England released on Thursday 1st December 2016.

Section 8, also known as the Section 8 notice to quit or the Section 8 possession notice, is a prerequisite if the landlord of an assured tenancy wishes to obtain possession order from the court, thereby ending the tenancy, for a reason based on a circumstance entitling the landlord to possession.

Section 8 is a prescribed form and must therefore be used correctly, which is why the TR Group always advise landlords to continually check the Government website and use the latest versions to remain compliant.

The online form should update automatically next week, where you can check the “updated” date at the bottom the Govt. webpage. Please see: for further information.

I used to keep a stock of all these forms.

It appears that methodology is now very unwise

ALWAYS use the latest updated form as you know that some District Judge will reject your application cos you have used last months S8!!

Hadn’t realised how expensive printer ink is

I reckon I have spent £30 on printer ink to produce 8 sets of tenant documents!

But in general it seems you should print of the latest forms on a just in time basis

It makes no sense in now having files of forms

Still makes some space in the filing cabinet!

It gets worse.  I complete all my forms electronically to avoid mistakes, connected directly to my database.  Every time a new form is issued I have to update my software, a task which usually takes at least half a day.

Yet another government ploy to destroy the PRS, as if section 24 were not sufficient!Yell
