Is he likely to have the money please?
When should the AST end?
You need to issue a S21 notice otherwise you can't end the agreement.
You can and should issue a S8 notice as well in order that you can recover the arrears but it isn't really worth it from the point of view of getting him out. S8s are all very well but they mean you cannot use the accelerated possession procecure so it takes just as long to get to court.
That is always supposing you have to go to court as he may just leave.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You need to issue both together.
You can rely on S8 as it does give a shorter notice period but then you cannot use accelerated possession procedure so it would be no quicker in the long run.
The purpose of the inclusion of S8 is that you can then recover the arrears at court.
