A couple of months ago I raised the question of whether charging two months rent in advance had any effect on when the landlord could issue a two month in arrears S8 notice. The answers seemed ambiguous and I wonder if the RLA now have any clearer view.

The main purpose of the 2 month system is to reduce the loss when a tenant defaults on rent (and you have little chance of recovery. I realise it cannot be used as a deposit for damage/ lack of cleaning.

So, if the extra month paid effectively means that you can't issue an S8 until the tenant *owes* two months rent(counting the extra month as rent paid) as opposed to two months when due rent has not been paid, the landlord is no better off.

Any further thoughts/ advice?
