I have a tenant that is querying a clause in an AST. It is as follows:

"If applicable, the Landlord may end this agreement under Grounds 1 or 2 under Section 8.
If applicable, the Landlord gives the tenant notice that at some time before the start of this tenancy, the Landlord lived in this proeprty asd his or her main home, and may need possession under Ground 1 of the Housing Act 1988; and there is a mrtgage on the property which, if not paid, may result in repossession under Ground 2 of the Housing Act 1988. If the Landlord wants to use either Ground, he will start the procedure by serving you with a Section 8 Housing Act 1988 notice. That notice is for two months and he cannot apply for a court hearing until after two months have passed."

What does it all mean?

Thanks in anticipation.
