Hi

Thank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer.

Has the tenant said this over the phone? Did you keep a detailed record of the conversation?

Have you served a s20 notice?

Kind regards

The fixed term ended on 2nd Feb and our tenancy agreement says we can give 6 weeks notice which ends on 24th Mach

Hi

Thank you.

I am afraid all you can do is keep a detailed diary of any threatening incidents and hand them to the police.

If he does not return vacant possession of the property on the 24 March then you will have to seek possession through the courts.

Are you holding a deposit from him?

Kind regards

AJ
