    Issue a S.8 notice for late and non-payment of rent due.
    If they do not move out at the end of the notice you will have to go to court for an evicition order, if they still do not leave then you will have to go back to the court to appoint baliffs to chuck them out.

        Surely I'm not the only one who finds it absolutely incredible that people rent out their property without knowing this kind of stuff?

          Well we are not all geiuses otherwise we would probably not rent in the first place,--plus the law is constantly changing another plus for bad tenants.

            Have a look at the agreements section of this website. All the forms you need and the necessary links to the court service website are to be found there together with a ton of information to ensure that your application is successful. Be advised to serve a section 21 notice as well. Although this needs at least 2 months notice or until the end of the fixed term of the AST before court action can be commenced, it acts as a backstop in case your section 8 application fails for some reason. The service of a section 21 notice has absolutely no effect on the section 8 procedure that you are intending to use. It is stateted however by the theorists that it is the only certain way of obtaining that possession order.

            P.P.
            Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.
