Hi, a tenant has come to me wanting a property as he's been evicted from his existing home. His tenancy is on a company let, the company of which have now gone in to administration and made him redundant. He therefore hasnt paid rent for 2 months because he's unemployed. He will now claim LHA but cannot repay the debt.

The landlord served a LT20 notice on 20th December which apparently expired on 31st January. The tenant offered to move out by 28th Feb (when he can move in to my property) but the existing landlord has become extremely threatening and the tenant is worried he will just turn up and change the locks.

Surely the landlord is not in his right to do this without a posession order? I just wanted to check because I'm not familiar with company lets and if the notice to quit works the same as a Section 8.

Many thanks in advance for your assistance.
