I've registered the deposit as its within the AST date and

Resolved Question:

I've registered the deposit as its within the AST date and serving a new section 21 as advised by the council to do, however, the tenant is refusing to move out as she hasn't actually found a place so I'm unsure if they'll sign the section 21 extending this until 21 March.
They still owe £208 from the 21 December rent and will owe another £560 on 21 January, which I no she cannot pay as bailiffs have just visited on a £2k debt for child care as the owner of the company contacted me to give me a heads up! The oil company we used to use have been in touch as they filled the container and as she hadn't paid the money, so they drained the tank under the minimum mark it has to be kept at so the boiler doesn't break if no oil is passing through, so there given us the 50 litres back to bring it up to the line. If she continues to use it, this will break the boiler, so can we cap this if she doesn't top the oil up to avoid damage?
