Mixing ground 17 and 8

12 Dec 2020 | 2 comments

if one was to rely upon ground 17 and ground 8 (less than 6 months arrears) can 17 still be acted upon in 2 weeks, and if a possession order was not acquired on ground 17 (one of bucklands exemptions and deemed a priority ground) can that notice still be used for ground 8 if 27 failed ?

    No, if these grounds were joint, the higher length ground wins (in this case ground 8).

    We wouldn’t recommend adding ground 17 because it’s a complex ground especially when ground 8 is available and generally straightforward. By only using ground 8, you will be able to use the online system (PCOL) and could also save potential unnecessary delays.

    So would it be possible to serve 2 separate notices one in 17 and one on 8 the latter as back up ?
