Section 8 Of The Housing Act 1988 As Amended By S.151 HA 1996 – Notice To Quit – Grounds For Eviction

  • This has 17 grounds for evicting a tenant –
  • the first 8 are
    • Mandatory i.e. the judge has no discretion and must grant eviction.
  • Grounds 9 to 17 are
    • discretionary – the judge will act as s /he sees fit and fair.
  • Do not confuse this with a section 8 tenant – an American tenant in receipt of housing cost assistance.  This is not a UK concept.
