What is the shelf life of a section 21(4)(a) once it has been issued to the tenant.
I am currently experiencing a scenario which upon delivering a section 21 to my tenant some 18 months ago, they started to pay their rent aswell as a little extra each week which would clear their arrears. Unfortunately the tenant has reverted to their old ways and have now missed recent payments. I have been left no alternative but to claim for possession but I am unsure to whether or not I can use the same section 21 which was issued 18 months ago.

Any advice would be appreciated.
