Landlords can use the notice to terminate for rent arrears in two ways.

The AT6 Notice to Terminate and Notice to Quit can also be used if your tenant is in rent arrears of less than three months, but, in this instance, there is not a definite guarantee that the court will grant you an eviction order.
