  • Landlords in Distress

    Eviction from hospital accommodation

    my friends daughter is on a 6 month AST which has been a periodic tenancy for the last 18 months. The landlord (the hospital) has served a Section 8 giving her 1 months notice to leave. The reason is “suitable alternative accommodation available”!!

    Is this legal? I thought it had to be 2 months notice??

    What Grounds of Section 8? Only 14 days notice with Section 8 but has to be on one of the prescribed grounds, looks like they are using ground 9, not a mandatory ground.

    Ground 9Suitable accommodation of the same type and quality has been offered to the tenant and refused. The landlord is required to pay all reasonable removal costs if possession is granted.

    You are right about this. It should indeed have 2 months notice. This is in s7(4A) of the Housing Act 1988. In any event possession on this ground almost never works and its a bit hopeless so I am not sure why the landlord is using it. It might be worth seeking to negotiate as they may be prepared to offer a good deal to move.

    Hi David. Thank you. The reason it says is Ground 9 but he’s just offered her a room in a shared flat with strangers. She’s up to date with rent, no problems so can he still do this. ?

    Hospitals are kicking out most longer term tenants now in order to re let to overseas nurses etc so they can get workers in the country. . My friend is a experienced theater nurse working for a major london hospital and was kicked out on the same basis last year.. Result she now pays higher rent and much further to travel. Now looking to go abroad to work - yet another experienced nurse leaving due to Government policy ( via the back door) so further strains on the NHS.
