I have a property let on a short hold tenancy. The tenant broke

Customer Question

I have a property let on a short hold tenancy. The tenant broke the terms of the lease by sub-letting and leaving for 6 months. We onlly found out when our plumber called to maintain the boiler. She reurned in November and gave 1 months notice that she would leave by Dwcember 4th. She did not leave at the end of her notice and has not paid the rent. I issued the her with 2 months notice to quit on the correct form section 21. How do I obtain a posssesion order and enforce it if she still does not give me vacant possesion?
She now has 3 months arrears of rent plus I have incurred fees from our letting agent who had found another tenant in Decenber. We intend to pursue these costs via the Small Claims Court. Her sister signed as Guarantor on her lease.

Alex Watts :

The Court will decide whether to give possession. You should also ask for Judgment on the arrears

Alex Watts :

if the tenant still refuses to move you can get a warrant for eviction.

Alex Watts :

Once you have Judgment then you can also pursue the guarantor.
