Customer Question

Hi there, several years a go, we let a property to a guy who sub-lets, we recently asked for the property back and issued him a section 21, as for as we were concerned he was outr tenant, he is now stating that he's got squatters in the property, we know that these are actually his tenants. He is now stating that he is not out tenant but our agent which we never agreed to. The problem is, we did not have any paper work from him..it was a verbal agreement. We are not sure either whether his tenants who he is is stating are squatters have any tenancy agreement. what do you suggest for us to get our property back?

we do not have a contract with our tenant it was a verbal contract..there might possibly be an assured shorthold tenancy with his tenants

An assured shorthold tenancy agreement for whom our tenant? no this was a verbal agreement, we are not sure whether his tenant has got an agreement..if they have it would be an Assured Shorthold Agreement
