Issue of Section 21(4)(a) and Section 8 at the same time
Tenancy Types and Management

The management agency of my property have managed to not serve (ever) a valid Section 21 or Section 8 on my tenant, who has been in the property now for 9 months and is currently on a periodic tenancy with the 6 months tenancy having expired. He owes 3 months rent and I intend to go for repossession under Section 8. Is it OK to serve the Section 21(4)(a) at the same time? Obviously I can't / shouldn't instigate actual court proceedings under both sections at the same time, but I don't want to waste the valuable notice period for a Section 21 if the Section 8 should fail for any reason.

Am I on safe turf here?

Many thanks!
