Eviction using Ground 14
My flat was raided yesterday and the tenant taken into custody for dealing drugs from the flat. I have served a Section 8 earlier in the year for rent arrears but the current position is he's just £4.50 over the 2 month arrears level and his LHA covers the entire rent. There is a danger he will cough up £5 and scupper my eviction under ground 8 (10 & 11 are never a given and with LHA paid direct to me I may well not get possession). I intend to issue a new Section 8 including Ground 14 (engaging in a unlawful activity). It says on the Section 8 "immediate" which I'm assuming means I can issue today and send to court on Monday, but I would like some clarification on what "immediate" means in this case.
