A new Form 3 (the section 8 notice) came into force on 4 May 2021. There is no new information to be inserted on the form but you should be alert to the following:
- Any section 8 notice served on or after 29 April 2021 by post will not be in the new prescribed form by the time it reaches the recipient and will have to be re-served in the new Form 3.
- If a moratorium is in place, you cannot serve a section 8 notice on a tenant in relation to a moratorium debt on grounds 8, 10 or 11 of Schedule 2 (with or without other grounds) without the permission of the county court or any other court or tribunal where legal proceedings concerning the debt have been or could be issued or started.
