So on the basis that the tenant has not paid the deposit and is refusing to pay the deposit because I have now asked him to leave (before the break clause in October) - can I evict him?
Or am I using the S21 because of the sublet? Or both reasons?
How long will it take for this process roughly?
Also the contract that the tenant has with the other person (sub-let) do I have any legal obligations? He apparently has him on a 10 month contract.
Right ok, well hopefully it won't come to that.
Sorry to keep going over what may seem like the same thing to you but I am unclear about this:
To serve a notice to the tenant means that I complete a form and send it and he will have the opportunity to leave. Is it right that if he doesn't respond to this and there is no resolution within 2 months of the date of the order only then can I apply for a posession order from the court by completing the link for the court order that you sent???
Also with regards ***** ***** I can only serve this in August right (as the break clause allows me to ask him to leave in October 2015)???
So at this point in time it is only a S8 that I can serve?
Sorry to ask again, I just need to be clear, as I am writing the tenant a letter to summarise my position.
