We have a family with children who are Assurred Tenants (since 1994). We would like to gain possession of the property under the mandatory terms (ground 6) under section 8 of the Housing Act 1988. It states: "to be used when the landlord wants to reconstruct, demolish or carry out works on part or all of the property which cannot go ahead with the tenant there, perhaps because the tenant will not allow access. If this ground is used, the landlord has to pay reasonable removal costs". My question is, if the Court accepts this ground does the tenancy end there and then (seems too good to be true!), or are we still liable to rehouse them elsewhere or back in the same flat, after renovation, under the same Assured Tenancy terms.
