    Help with eviction pls!

    Hi I'm after a bit of help pls..so our tenants are now well out of their 6 month contract and have been on a rolling agreement for a few months. Due to constant late rent paying we issued them form 6a back in Feb 2018. (15/02/18 to be exact).
    Their monthly rental period begins on 21st of the month therefore ends on 20th of each month. So we gave them 2+ month's notice to be out by 20th April.
    They called us and due to hard times and lack of councils help asked for an extra month, so we verbally agreed to 20th May, same thing next month and granted another month to 20th June again verbally. But again late rent and beginning to get the impression this is going to go on and on now.
    So my question is, is my original section 21 6a still valid as I think it is, for a 6 month period? Or do I have to start again with another notice period of 2 month's?
    Going for accelerated possesion order and don't want to get it wrong.
    Many thanks in advance!

    I'd start a Money Claim Online (MCOL). You write to them giving them 2 weeks to pay the arrears. After that write a Letter Before Action giving them a further 7 days. then do a MCOL. Don't agree any more time to pay. There are proformas for the letters but I can give you an example of what I send if you like. Don't forget to say in your LBA that you will claim for interest (statutory is 8%) , solicitor's fees, Litigant in Person fees (google that one) and any other costs and expenses.

    Go for the accelerated possession. Act quickly.

            That is 6 months from date of Service, which includes the 2 months required before it can be heard in Court.

              Provided to start the repossession process before 15th August, your notice will not have expired.

              When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
              Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).
