We have recently acquired a new client who has a number of properties. Amongst them is one tenant who refuses to sign an AST with us and will not provide us with a copy of the original agreement.

The original agreement was signed with an agent who has since ceased trading and the landlord does not have a copy of the agreement. The landlord beleives that the tenant was not signed up on an AST, but rather is on a 5 or 10 year lease.

The monthly rent for this tenant is 525 per month and she is refusing to pay more than 50 per month. She already has arrears totalling over 3,000. She does not work but is not entitled to HB for a further 18 months (as been tenant for 3.5 years and not eligible for HB for 5 years according to tenant and the local council) as she sold her house to the LL nad rents it back.

Please could you advise as to how we can evict this tenant lawfully?
