Tenant refusing to leave after s21 notice
We issued a s21 notice to a difficult tenant 2 months ago and they have just informed us that they have been advised by the council that they do not need to leave until there is a court order in place.
I have also noticed that a further payment for the next month's rent has been paid today - even though this was supposed to be the end of the tenancy.
This tenant has been extremely difficult and even abusive. sadly she is a single mother with 2 children.
I would be grateful to hear:
- the simplest process for obtaining a court order.
- Whether I should refund the rent payment
- Whether I should make a representation to the council as it seems wrong that they should encourage landlords and tenants to go to court.
