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

We have a tenant who, as of today, owes almost £2000 in rent.
He has been on a monthly periodic tenancy since the end of his six month AST.
Payment has been erratic, but with reminders, he had been keeping up until a few months ago.
We could serve him with two months notice (presumably this must be two months from the end of a rental period?) which I’m pretty certain would drag on and end up with the need for a court order and bailiffs and still no rent paid or, is there a way of offering some sort of deal whereby we say that if he moves out by a certain date (would he have to give one months notice if we were willing to accept less?), without causing damage to the property, we would waive the monies owed?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
