        OP from your previous posts you have given various different dates for this tenancy. Perhaps it would benefit the more knowledgeable on here if you give :-
        - exact dates of AST
        - exact details of S21 issued per your previous threads
        - exact details of dates etc of S8 you have issued.

            Personally YES, issue a Section 21 asap but ensure dates are correct and that Deposit is protected. If your Sec 8 fails you have the Sec 21 no reason for possession route open to you. But please do wait for others with more knowledge to reply.

              thanks peter

                  Need more info:

                  What date did the fixed term commence (dd/mm/yy)? (not necessarily the same as the date the contract was signed)
                  What is the length of the term?
                  Did T pay a deposit and, if so, is it protected and have you provided T with the prescribed information?

                        Hi all,

                        Long time lurker, first time poster. Would be grateful for advice on the below.

                        Have a tenant on a AST which expired in July and has rolled onto a periodic tenancy. Over past 6 months rent has been delayed, partial and on two occasions unpaid. 2 months rent is missing...

                        Unless the tenant has dependent children, some, or all with a disability, and some other form of vulnerability for her/him self..... they will be in a crummy emergency accommodation flea pit or a dumpy flat in a place resembling the film set of '' Escape from New York ''. They are deluded.

                        A tenant has refused to leave the property at the end of her tenancy and has now asked to be evicted as in her words 'that will make her eligible for a council house'.

                        I am sending an accelerated possession order through the courts but whilst completed the forms noticed two apparent errors...

                        Thatcher's 1988 housing act makes it clear tenant does not have to leave at end of fixed term

                        Why help tenant take a council property from a more deserving case? I'd decline to serve s21. S8 if possible... (was she ever late with rent?)

                        Ok so it looks like the section 21 notice is invalid as a result of this error. The deposit scheme was not in place at the time of the notice.

                        Apparently the deposit has to be returned in full....

                        The good thing is they have asked you prior to getting one, so the decision is yours. If you do decide then I would suggest you increase rent to compensate for your loss in the future.

                        I wouldn't, but it does depend on what type of dog.
                        You should assume your carpets will all need replacing.

                        You don't have to renew the tenancy, just let it become periodic.
                        And, you're right, don't renew it.

                        To repossess, you'll either have to attend court or pay a solicitor to do so on your behalf.
