Section 8 – Forms or On-line?

 

On-line – Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Less expensive than papers (£325.00 instead of £355.00)
  • Hearing date normally quicker in our experience
  • We recommend this option where possible

Cons:

  • Each rental payment must be entered manually on-line up to 2 years worth or as far back as when the arrears started (whichever is shorter). If tenant has been in a long time this could be a big task whereas papers you can just print your computer record.

 

Papers – Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • If the tenant has been in a long time, the rent statement is easier as it can simply be attached to the papers without the need to manually type each rental payment.

Cons:

  • More expensive (£355.00 instead of £325.00)
  • Hearing date normally slower than on-line (in our experience but it shouldn’t be any different)
