Can a s48 be served after a s8 has been served?

    I’m assuming by the tone of the question that the landlord details should have been changed before the s8 was served.

    On that assumption the s48 needed serving before the 8. This is because the failure to provide the landlords name and address means no rent is payable until the s48 notice is served (after which all past rent becomes payable again).

    Therefore, on the day the s8 was served they weren’t in arrears (because no s48 had been given so no rent payable).

    A s48 should first be served and allow at least 4 days for delivery. Then, a s8 can be given and they will be in arrears.
