what's the answer to my question?
Expert:  james bruce replied 14 days ago.

The time required will depend on the reason given. The standard time period as of the 1st June is 4 months.

However, if tenant is in arrears of more than 4 months, or the possession is for anti social behaviour, then the time reduces.
