What type of rental agreement does the person have?
So they have a lodgers agreement.
When did you serve notice and how much notice did you serve?
No you cannot cut off utilities.
The notice to leave should have been served officially in writing and delivered directly to him.
That is why it should be sent recorded or registered post. Proof of postage. No proof of receipt.
May lodgers/tenants do know the system far better than those they rent from.
Do they share any rooms with you?
Then as they have exclusive use of their own facilities and do not share with you, then they are unlikely to be lodgers but rather tenants. Is this case your agreement is not correct and they have tenancy rights.
