I am evicting a garage tenant on fri 15th july. I would like

Resolved Question:

I am evicting a garage tenant on fri 15th july. I would like to ensure im covered as she is threatening to sue me for her removal costs (she has her belongings in there) and damage that she is presuming I'll do. I have a handwritten contract that covers all the basics.
She didnt pay her rent for 6 months then 2 months then 2 months. I served her notice for 4 weeks (but in error put date of notice served as same as eviction date. But quickly followed up the error on email. She has been given 2 further wks to set up a standing order & return new signed contract to me and despite friendly reminders, failed. Again. Can she sue me? Can I evict her belongings? I have ALL her correspondence. All my chasing messages recorded.

Id like to add that she never answers my phone calls. Rarely responds to messages and only when I chase and chase will she eventually respond. Then she implies I need to grow up and stop acting like a child.I have kept everything professional and factual & asked her to find something more suitable when she turns nasty. Its becoming extremely stressful. I hope I am covered. It is, afterall, just a garage rental. But it's really getting me down and I fear for my property.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
She continually threatens to sue me and tells me there are more important things to life. After not paying for the first 6 months and not answering my phonecalls, she informed me she had been on a humanitarian aid mission for the past few weeks. She doesn't appear to comprehend the importance of paying her rent. I do ALL her accounting - she recently argued what was owed to me until I proved it to her. Please help. I don't have time for this and can't deal with the stress.Thank youJessica
