Housing Act 1988 – Amendment to Notice of Seeking Possession (section 8 notice)

Posted by Sharon Garrity on
The section 8 notice (Notice of Seeking Possession) has been amended to take into account the changes brought in by the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. 

Changes take effect from 6 April 2015.  The amended notice is Form 3 in The Assured Tenancies and Agricultural Occupancies (Forms) (England) Regulations 2015 (SI 620/2015). 

The prescribed Form 3 should be used from that date in place of the existing prescribed Form 3 for all assured tenancies whether or not you are seeking possession on mandatory or discretionary grounds.
