Good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be able to assist.
Did you have a written agreement in place?
Kindly give me a minute to review and type a response. As this is an email service there may be a slight delay in my response to you. It doe snot mean I am not here.
The agreement was signed in August? is that correct?
Thank you for the additional information.
If the tenant has broken the conditions of his lease you may give him notice to leave the premises. You must be very careful to follow the correct procedure in order for any notice given to be valid.
For short term tenancies you are usually required to give the tenant a section 21 notice in a Form 6A. Please see below link for a copy of the form as well as notes on how to complete:
You must give your tenant at least 2 months' written notice and you are not required to give a reason for deciding to evict him.
If the tenant does not leave at the end of the notice period you may apply to the court for a possession order. You may apply for this by following the below link:
You must apply for this within 6 months of serving the section 21 notice. If they don't leave by the date set out in the possession order made by the court, you may apply to the court for bailiffs to evict the tenant.
With respect to the unpaid rent you may apply to the court to have this paid by the tenant. The tenant would have breached his contract by not making the payment. You may apply via the below link for this.
i hope I have clarified things for you. Kindly let me know if I may be of further assistance. Kindly take the time to rate the services received.
All the best
