Alex Watts :

Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends.

There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.

Alex Watts :

Once you have serve notice and if they refuse to move by the end of the term then you need to seek an Order for possession.

Alex Watts :

You may be able to do this online at: https://www.possessionclaim.gov.uk/pcol/

Alex Watts :

Or complete form N5 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n005-eng.pdf together with particulars of claim and submit it to Court.

Alex Watts :

The Court will then list the matter for hearing and decide whether to make an Order for possession.

Alex Watts :

If the notice has been served then the Court will order possession.

Alex Watts :

If they refuse to leave after the possession Order has been made then you can apply for bailiffs to evict

Alex Watts :

But this is the process.

Alex Watts :
