Hi, I'm Lea
Is the fixed term tenancy over?
Please read the following:
What type of tenancy is it?
Did you live in the same property?
Were you collecting rent?
Was your agreement in writing?
Did you give receipts for the payments they made?
I cannot see that you have a rental agreement of any kind - it's certainly not an AST, which means you cannot use a s21 to evict him. You have no rent agreement either, so it would seem he is just a visitor in your house.
You might want to regulate his being in your house by giving him a tenancy agreement now - for six months - with proper rental payments to be made. Ensure you serve all the relevant landlord information on him as required by law - if you don't know what you are doing with regards ***** ***** instruct a solicitor as you don't want to make mistakes.
I suggest the above as an alternative route, which may seem counterproductive as you want him out - but if he digs his heels in and waits for you to serve notice and take him to court, you're going to be six months down the line from here anyway, and with no guarantee that a court will give you possession.
