Landlords as you should know, can do what they like. They will never have any loyalty to you. You are just a commodity.

If you do not pay your rent , you WILL be served with a section 21. You know this.

When you are trying to find another rental, this will go against you! Sorry just read through again, you have already been served. Oh to hell with it! MAKE THEM WAIT! What about your deposit???

You had better contact SHELTER at least you will have someone on your side. 


The landlord has my depoist of £750 can the landlord agent apply for a section 8 of rent arrears they have already given me the section 21 notice first basically is it one or the other
