Our tenants are now beyond their six-month tenancy, and are more than two months in arrears.

Should we try to get them out on the grounds of arrears (section 8)- say 20 days + 2months + 14 days for possession order + 6 weeks to bailiffs;

or under Section 20 - no grounds needed and no scope for tenants to object, but at least the same timescale as far as I can see, or longer, plus a separate claim for arrears, costs etc having to be made through Small Claims?

Or can we do both at once - braces and a belt?

Or is there any kind of mediation srvice out there that would look like a good deal to even the most difficult.... tenants. Hard to restrain my language.
