I have served a section 21 notice on 18th February 2014 to my tenant, this notice expired on 25th April 2014. The same date (25th April 2014) was when the assured shorthold tenancy ended.
Background – House was let through a council scheme in 2010, but the assured shorthold tenancy agreement is with a named tenant and the tenant is claiming housing benefit to pay the rent. Tenant living there is a family (2 adults, 1 child at college 18 years old and 1 baby who is 9 months old). I want to get possession of the house to live in it myself with my family (wife and two babies). The tenant is very good overall, pays the rent on time (odd times a week late on the payment) but overall pays up the rent.
Now the tenant is not moving out, he has asked for another month. However, I have pressed him to see the council to seek help in getting re-housed but no reply and very hard to contact him as he is working away and not answering my calls/text messages. The Council are not helping either, they are asking me to seek legal advice.
What do I do next? Thoughts?
Getting legal advice via a solicitor? Adds further costs to me.
Getting a possession order via the courts? If so how do I arrange this? Can I do this myself?
I’d really appreciate your help and guidance.
