I have had a tenant in a property I own since the year 2000 with no tenancy agreement where do I stand when it comes to evicting him and what are his rights because he is in possession right now?.

Hello,

You do not need a written tenancy agreement. You may evict him from the property by following a procedure prescribed by law, or you may make a deal with him to agree for him to move out voluntarily.

May I help further?
