Allow Landlords to evict tenants where there are 14 days rent arrears14:34 PM, 1st October 2020

Hi, I’m in the middle of getting paperwork ready for when evictions restart and have a couple of queries regarding the accelerated eviction form ( claim for possession of property). I served notification well before lockdown began.
1. I was aware I had to send a copy of the gas certificate that I gave the tenant when they moved in and the last one I gave them before notifying them of eviction but the form seems to suggest I need to send a copy of all the gas certs for the years in between which I do have, is this correct ?
2. Are there any landlords out there that wished they have got a solicitor to help when came to filling in this form or do you feel it’s quite straightforward and unnecessary to pay for legal help at this point. Any tips to avoid making mistakes.
3. I’ve got to pay the court fees, a solicitor should I use one and as seems likely using bailiffs so I’m wondering if I can claim any of this back from the tenant?
