Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

We bought a flat with a sitting tenant on an AST. We did not need to occupy it ourselves at the time, so allowed the existing tenant to stay, notifying the tenant that we were the new landlords, paying us rent instead of the prior landlord.
We now need the flat back, partly due to the tenant’s bad behaviour. The landlord named on the AST now a SPT is not us of course.
Will that be a problem for us issuing a section 8/section 21 or are we simply ‘successors in title’ to the old landlord?
