    tenant served sec 21 but has already said they will not move out

    The section 21 was issued 10 days ago and gave tenant over 2 months notice. Tenant has said she will not move out in 2 months as cannot find anywhere in that time.
    I will be moving back into the property and my tenancy will have expired so in a little bit of a sticky situaiton.

    There are plenty of properties to let in the area.
    Is there anything I can do now?

    Thankyou

    No. If the Notice was correct in all respects*, you must wait for its period to expire.

    * plus:
    a. any protectable deposit must have been protected (with one of the three schemes); and
    b. any registrable HMO must have been registered (with Local Authority).

      Your post implies you are renting one property and letting another. If this is the case, and the fixed term of your current tenancy has ended, then you could continue on a periodic basis (assuming it's an AST in England or Wales), or find somewhere else.

      If the T will not move out in approx. 2 months, then you will have to go through the eviction process -there are no shortcuts.
