    This is intended to give another shake up within the industry, including the much talked about banning of the Section 21 notice. The Section 8 notice will be amended to include new ways of gaining access to your property if the landlord is looking to gain possession of a property to either move back in or sell the property, as well as the current form where the tenant is in breach of their tenancy.
