The government has updated the Section 8 and Section 13 forms which apply to private letting in England: they come into effect from Wednesday.
The section 8 notice (for which form 3 is used) is that invoked by many agents and landlords when a private tenant is in arrears by two months or more. This is the third update to the form in a year. The form used in Wales remains unchanged.
The section 13 notice (form 4) is used when rent is being increased for an existing tenant without the issuing of a new tenancy agreement.
