We have a tenant on dss (3 children and pets) whom we have had a 12 month contract with, which is up on 17th Feb.

We have served the section 21 notice 2 months prior to this date but she has failed to give us notice to vacate.We believe that she is holding out for a council house and that possibily has been advised by the council to sit tight

We have tried to contact her Houseing officer but they won't help us.

It seems that she has all the rights and we don't have any

I realise that we will probabily have to go down the eviction route to get rid.

How long does this take and what sort of cost are we looking at?
Also can we withhold her deposite to pay for this?

The message to all Landlords is 'Don't touch DSS'. I know you shouldn't tar people with the same brush but we will NEVER take that chance again.
