Grounds for Possession

These grounds for possession apply to tenancies entered into after 15 January 1989

Ground 1 can be used if the property to be repossessed was, or after the let is intended to be, returned to the landlord as their own home. For this ground to be successful the landlord must have notified the tenant in writing before the tenancy started, that he intended one day to ask for the property back on this ground.

Ground 2 relates to a lender's right to possession. If the property is subject to a mortgage the landlord will often be required to serve this notice on the tenants.

Ground 3 requires that the fixed term is less than eight months and the property has been let as a holiday home within the preceding 12 months.
