Some landlords may be persuaded by friends or relatives, to let a property to them, saying there is no need for a tenancy agreement. Invariably, these are the tenancies which go wrong, and besides losing so-called friends or doing relatives a favour which backfires, you are most likely left with them in your property and will have to get them out. You will need a court order to get them out, so it is essential that you serve a Section 21 notice, and if they are more than two months in arrears of rent, a Section 8 notice. The usual possession procedures then apply. However, please remember, if there is no written tenancy agreement, the accelerated possession proceedings cannot be used the case will have to be heard in court.
