Why have you not protected the deposit please?
Ok - have you ever renewed or has it always been a periodic after the expiry of the fixed term?
Ok - so you should have protected when you renewed it. Case law says that
So what you need to do is protect the deposit.
The Council are right they will rehouse when they get a possession order - they generally wont do it before that.
But unless the deposit is protected you can't take any step to evict such as serve notices or anything
Therefore protect the deposit serve a section 21 notice that you want them to leave and issue a possession claim
The matter will be listed at Court and once the Judge grants possession then will you get the tenant secured accomodation by the Council
If they leave before a possession order then they made be considered intentionally homeless and the Council may refuse to rehouse.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
You can't take ANY step in law unless the deposit is protected. Any step.
I am sorry
Great. Can I clarify anything else for you please?
No - you need to serve a Section 21 notice.
Then you can use the surrender agreement, but the Court will want to know a Section 21 has been served.
No, you need to do it again. Because you can't take ANY step before its registered.
