Section 8 Notices (eLearning)
In April 2019 both the English and Welsh Governments announced plans to abolish section 21. This is the single largest shake up in PRS housing in a generation. A consultation is underway but it is anticipated that this will be more of a consultation on how section 21 is abolished as opposed to if.
This course offers landlords and agents the opportunity to get ahead of the game in understanding the alternative notice available for ending Assured Shorthold Tenancies, the section 8 notice. Whilst currently not favoured by landlords, we hope that the consultation process will strengthen section 8 notices and the court process for obtaining possession.
This course will be kept regularly up to date with changes as and when they happen, giving landlords the confidence that if a tenancy reaches crisis point, it can be brought to an end.
This interactive eLearning course is designed to assist landlords in understanding when and how they can serve section 8 notices.
- The grounds for possession and when a section 8 notice can be served
- Where caution should be exercised, possible counterclaims and where some claimants go wrong
- How to complete a section 8 notice
- How to serve a section 8 notice
- New landlords who have yet to experience the ending of a tenancy
- Landlords and agents who have not executed possession using a section 8 notice
- Landlords and agents who have completed one of our principle courses and wish to improve their knowledge in this area
- Landlords and agents seeking continuous professional development points
