Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

When it comes to rent arrears – how are they calculated for the purposes of the Mandatory Grounds requirement in a S8 ?
1. Is it the total amount of rent arrears that exceed what the per month x 6 total rent should be? eg One months rent is in total £1k so arrears have to be over £6k OR
2. It is the total amount of rent expected to be paid by the tenant. eg. If benefits pay £900, the tenant is supposed to pay £100 (to match the total £1k rent) then its 6 x £100? or would it still have to be 6 x £1k?
Another question – does anti-social behaviour also include breaching the TA by trashing the house and garden? Surely anti-social behaviour is also anti-good tenant behaviour? Is there a distinction anyone is able to reference to please?
Although I have a S21 ongoing I’m thinking of actually listing the issues plain and simple as I have to fill in the reasons why I will be pursuing this possession when the courts open back up.
