help with notices please
I'd like to ask for help with issuing both a section 8, and a section 21 please.
My tenants 6 month AST in a room in an HMO started on 22/3/19.
So I understand that I can serve him with a section 21, using form 6A, on 23/7/19 ? This being the first day of the fourth month into his tenancy ? I have all the signed evidence from him that he received everything I need in terms of compliance. Gas cert, EPC, correct version of how to rent etc. The house has a HMO licence in place.
However, on Friday 26th July, he will formally be 2 months in arrears. So I would like to serve him with a section 8 too.
I'd like to issue both notices to him by posing through his door on the Friday, 26th July. I will take photographic evidence.
I'd just like to please check my dates on the notices ?
On the section 21 I shall put 29th July ( thereby giving the one working day required for receiving notice ) and put that he is required to leave on 29th September. That giving two full months notice ? Is this correct ?
On the section 8, I shall also put 29th July, giving one working day to receive, and 12th August for “the court proceedings will not begin until after” Is this also correct ?
I just cannot afford a solicitor to help with all this. I have successfully carried out a section 21 before, 10 years ago, all by myself, all the way to bailiffs. But it was so long ago.
Thank you all for any input. Much appreciated.
