Section 8 notice, arrears and tenants paying rent

Q. I have served a section 8 notice, my tenant has started paying rent but there are still arrears, what can I do?

A. If your tenant is still in the property when the section 8 notice expires you will have to ask a court to order possession. If there are still two months rent arrears a court will order possession of the property. If however there are less than two months rent arrears, a court would order suspended possession, which means that your tenant can stay in the property provided they pay rent and instalments towards the arrears.
