Hi everyone, I really need some help and would appreciate any kind of advice or suggestions. So, I have tenants; a husband, wife and their 2 children (1 of which is now 18) who have been living at my property since 2013. It was initially done through an estate agent but after a couple of years, we ended up doing it privately.
Throughout the years we have signed/renewed tenancy agreements signed by both husband and wife however the most recent agreement that was signed only includes the husband’s name as the tenant (no other name was on the agreement not even as permitted occupants), which we stupidly signed.
I want to move back into my property as I am now retired but they now are refusing to leave unless we bring them to court. I considered serving a section 8 ground 1 but I did not give them prior notice and because of this it does not make the ground mandatory.
What can I do? Can I serve a valid section 21 that will evict all in the property considering the wife’s name is not on the tenancy agreement?
