How should I respond to the court as I need to sell?

How should I respond to the court as I need to sell?

I’m going through some financial challenges and the best way out was to sell my Buy to Let property. I submitted an accelerated procedure form to evict my tenant as I need to sell the house due to financial pressure.

I offered to pay the tenant a months rent + deposit to facilitate her moving out, but she refused to respond to the offer.

The tenant has now sent a defence form to the court saying she can’t afford a new place and that she has no where to go with her two children if she is evicted. I got a letter from the court stating “I enclose a copy of the defendant’s notice and look forward to receiving a completed request for possession if appropriate”.

Can anyone advise on how I can respond to the court?

The tenant has not paid any rent for over three months now?

Simply request possession
