Section 8 query – do I need a solicitor?

Section 8 query – do I need a solicitor?

Hi, I’m new to the forum and can anyone help? I’ve got a lodger who has had a section 8 served on 20th Sept. The main ground is ‘landlord moving back into property’.

There are other discretionary grounds including arrears but not 2 months or more, the assured tenancy period has lapsed and, sorry to say, when the lodger moved in in Nov 2022, we only had a Gas Safe cert in place.

Does anyone think we can push on with the possession order based on the above and without the use of a solicitor?

Thank you,

Daniel

"they literally rubbed their hands together"
Even more so I imagine if the claimant was a litigant in person.
