    Thank you for your comments. I talked to the council and they said that because it wasn't a formal notice my section 21 is still valid. The eviction company have said they may still try and use it as a defence. I will do the repairs asap. The property has bats in the eves so I can't fill all the gaps as it could prevent them from accessing their nest but the pest control company will let me know the best way forward.

      You don't need an eviction company. There is plenty of help and advice here on Landlordzone with doing it yourself.

        Thanks yes because of the responses to this thread I should've asked for advice here but I was a newbie so didn't realise. Unfortunately when I started proceedings over 2 weeks ago and had the problems I've had with these tenants and the fact I've been ringing the NLA pretty much consistently over the last 5 months (stupidly I lost the original S21 so had to re-issue), they advised because they're really difficult tenants to go to a specialised company. One reason was that I didn't get a signature to say they'd got the EPC or Gas safety prior to the start of the tenancy and I may need to get a witness statement to prove they were given before it began. Next time I'll be so much more aware but in the meantime the tenants have a financial interest in providing false information to the council, courts etc. Once they're out they'll be a small claims against me so I've that to deal with and NLA told me to try and settle before hand.

          Have you enquired the cost from the eviction company? I hear tales of them being £2k upwards!

          Also, they seem to steer clients to do a Section 8 eviction rather than section 21. (Lots of nice court fees, and adjournments to clock up the cash.)

            Hi I'm using NLA repossession and they are enforcing the S21 for a set fee of around £800. They didn't try and steer me because I'd already served it.
