Section 8 notices

As the new section 8 notice to take effect from 4 May 2021 (which refers to the ‘breathing space’ regulations) contains an error we have taken down our section 8 notices from the possession notices page.  As we do not think it will be possible to serve a valid section 8 notice (in England) until such time as this has been corrected by the Government and a new notice issued.
