Update: Please note that in England, between 14 November 2020 and 11 January 2021, no eviction notices are to be served on tenants. The sole exception is in extreme circumstances (eg anti-social behaviour and extreme rent arrears of at least 9 months, accumulated before 23 March 2020).
We are recommending that landlords suspend or delay evictions during the Covid-19 pandemic in line with Government Guidance. Due to Covid-19 there is uncertainty on when eviction proceedings will be allowed to recommence. The notice period you set out in this notice may be extended due to changes made by the Government in response to the pandemic. Failure to comply with this extended notice period may result in your notice being invalidated.
We recommend that you not use Rocket Lawyer's eviction notice during this time. You can find an updated Section 8 Notice on the Government website, which has been changed to reflect new legislation.
For use in England and Wales only.
Make sure you follow proper procedure when you want to take possession of your property from a tenant that remains at the premises with this section 8 notice to quit. If your property is let on an assured shorthold tenancy, the most common form of tenancy with private landlords, you'll need to use this section 8 notice template to ensure that you have the grounds to obtain possession of the property.
