1. What is a section 8 notice?

Section 8 notices derive from Section 8 of the Housing Act 1988. Section 8 applies to assured shorthold tenancy agreements (AST) and outlines the landlords’ process to terminate a tenancy and repossess property from their tenants.

To successfully obtain possession using the section 8 process, the landlord must rely on a ‘ground for possession’ as defined in section two of the Housing Act 1988.
