Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I have a property, which I rent out, most of the tenants have moved out, however there is one left, she has a small child as well. She has a AST contract with me for 6 months, there is 4 months left on it. She owes some arrears (a months worth)
I want to repair my house, re-fit a new bathroom, shower, kitchen and other things and eventually sell the house. I can’t do all this with her living there. I’m struggling to pay the mortgage, times are very hard for me
Is it possible for me to get her to sign a Surrender Tenancy contract, whereby we both agree to terminate the tenancy? She wants to get housed by the council, but they will only help her if she is homeless, so if she signs the Surrender Tenancy letter, she is technically homeless? and can get help from the council? and I can start work on my house..
Is it possible the council will force me to take her back if after she has signed the Surrender Tenancy, and left the property on her own accord?
