There are 17 grounds for possession laid down in the Housing Act 1988 as amended by the Housing Act 1996 that may be cited in possession proceedings against a tenant.

Eight are Mandatory grounds for possession where the court is obliged to award possession provided the landlord has complied with the procedure set out in the Housing Acts and has served the tenant with the appropriate notices.

Nine are Discretionary grounds for possession allowing the court some leeway. Landlords may also seek possession when it can be demonstrated that a tenant is no longer using the accommodation as his or her principal home.
