Just want to know what steps to take

Hello. Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to assist your with this today.

Please bear with me and I will be online and off-line from time to time and therefore, may be delayed getting back to you. You will receive an email when I reply.

Has he only just upset you or has it been going on for awhile?

and does he have any sort of tenancy agreement?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
It being going on for a while but when I speak to him it takes it as a joke
He agreed he will start to look for new accommodation
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Don't want life phone call as he is not refusing to leave
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
He also admitted to what he did was wrong

You have probably seen a pop-up offering you the chance of a telephone call at an extra cost.  It is up to you whether you have a telephone call or not but do bear in mind that a 15-30 minute telephone call covers an awful lot of ground and you can get an awful lot of information in that time.  So you can ignore it or go ahead or go ahead later.  It’s your choice.

Meanwhile, we can carry on on here.

When you say a lodger, I assume that you live in the same property.  If that’s the case, then you need to give him one month notice which does not necessarily have to be in writing but it’s better if it is.

Provided he shares some facilities, kitchen, bathroom, lounge, whatever, and his accommodation is not self-contained, then you do not need a court order to get him out and when the notice has expired, you can simply lock him out provided you give him his belongings back.

Here it is from the government website.
