i had two tenants occupy my property in July 2016 on a 12 month tenancy, they were put in by letting agent on a non managed basis. They paid the first payment but then one of them was made redundant so had to put a claim in for housing benefit. They failed to pay any further rent payments and despite several attempts to contact them they are ignoring all calls and correspondence. I have been in touch with my local council who confirmed they had been sent housing benefit payments. As housing benefits payments are being spent by the tenants the council has agreed to make future payments to me but these payments only cover half the rent. Can I issue a section 8 for breach of tenancy or am i stuck as a 12 month tenancy has been signed ?
