What type of contract is this please?
It is rent contract for one year
Of a residential house?
Is this entitled assured shorthold tenancy agreement?
We rent the house together, agreement start 18-09-2013, ends 18-09-2014. I want him to move now and I stay alone till the end of contract.
So this is an AST?
yes, only for one year
Are you in arrears?
No. I just want him move out, I will pay everything by myself
Will it help if I contact police?
Its a civil matter.
I'm afraid its bad news then.
If this is an AST and you are locked in for one year then you do not have grounds to get him out.
What you can do is sue him for the cost of his half of the rent which you have to pay.
However, only the landlord can evict him. Of course the landlord is likely to do that if you stop paying him but then he will evict you too if you are subject to a joint agreement.
He can, of course, give you a fresh agreement to live there by yourself though.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, thank you
