Part 4 of our grounds for possession series considers ground 4 - Lets to students by educational institutions.
This ground allows educational establishments- such as universities- who let out properties to students, to be able to obtain possession of the property without having to satisfy one of the more rigid grounds.
In order to be able to rely upon this ground, the tenancy must be for a fixed term of no more than 12 months.
In order to rely on this ground, written notice must be given at the start of the tenancy that possession may be sought on this ground.
At present, a final notice giving a minimum of 4 months' notice must be given prior to issuing court proceedings relying on ground 4.
