Hi all, We have a problem tenant who has alcohol abuse issues, is behind in his rent and really needs help that we cannot offer to him (although I am trying to work with him through the local support structures for both housing need and alcohol abuse). In short, we really need to end the tenancy.
My question is, during the current eviction ban is there anything stopping me from serving him notice to leave? I think he has family and friends locally who would likely take him in if he were not able to find alternative accommodation.
My understanding is that if I ask him to leave, and he goes willingly then that is legal. If he refuses, I have no recourse to the courts and have to wait my turn for court proceedings after the ban is lifted.
In short, if I ask him to go, am I breaking the law?
