I will now turn to your enquiry and assist you as best i can so please bear with me.
Have you been served with a section 21 notice?
Do you live with your landlord as a lodger and share rooms with them?
Can i see a copy of the AST also
You paid a deposit and rent also?
Thank you. Generally your landlord can take back their property without giving any reason if you have either a periodic tenancy, or a fixed-term tenancy that has ended.
The landlord will have to have protected your deposit with a deposit protection scheme. In addition the date you must leave must be at least 6 months after your original tenancy began - the one you had on first moving in.
They must give you written notice that they want the property back. They must give you two months notice and provide you with a date to leave.
Your landlord cannot remove you by force. If the notice period expires and you do not leave the property, your landlord may start the process of eviction through the courts.
You can find confirmation if this in the government guidance and inform your landlord of the same and they have to comply with these requirements to lawfully evict you:-
I hope this has assisted your enquiry and thank you for using our services.
