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

Ok….I’ve got a right mess to try and sort out. I had a couple move into my property 18 Months ago, six months later they split up and she moved out, giving us written confirmation of this. We were hesitant to offer him a new 6 months tenancy until we saw regular payments. He was claiming housing benefit which he paid us until 4 months ago, served a section 21, court date next week.
We found out today he left the property 6 months ago, was still claiming housing benefit. Also we found out she never left the property and still resides there! We only found out this because she appeared in the local court for stealing £30k from residents of a care home, and had given her address as my property. Speaking with the neighbours confirmed this!
So where do I stand? Is she legally allowed in the property? All court papers have been served against him, we do not know where he has gone and is not contactable!
Any advise would be grateful.
