Hi, thank you for your question. Have you pursued court proceedings for possession in the past?
Hi, this question remains open. Please could you provide the requested information so that I can assist you.
Thanks for confirming. Despite them not having a written tenancy agreement, they will still be considered tenants as they are enjoying use of the property and paying you rent. You will need to give them formal notice, which should be a Section 21 notice giving them at least two months notice, and follow the required content to ensure it is correct. Please see more information here:
If they do not leave by the end of the notice period you will need to pursue a court application for possession, and if there are no rent arrears being sought you can do this under the accelerated route which can be commenced here: https://www.gov.uk/accelerated-possession-eviction
If they do not leave after a possession order has been granted you can then apply to court for a notice of eviction which gives them the last date and time that they must leave, otherwise a bailiff will enter and repossess the property.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
