    the lettings agent is not responsible for getting the tenant out, by the way – whether you have a case against them to do with references etc. is another thing, but they will only be able to advise you – the legal advice and the way you proceed is down to you.

    but as has been said numerous times in different ways, the only way you'll get legal possession back by the book is by getting a legal expert to serve the correct notice and get an eviction hearing, so the sooner you do it the better (the date on which this can take effect is governed by the payment dates of the tenancy). so get on it!

    may prove useful reading, to give you an idea of the position.

    Flatboy has it about right in his last post. but you don't need a legal expert to serve notice for you. its quite easy to serve notice yourself, as long as you follow the correct legal procedure.

    Easier to try agreeing with your tenant to move out. if he has somewhere to go, he is more likely to move out. This is easier than going to court, and a lot less stressful

    I don't know what kind of arrangement you have with your letting agent but I rent my house out through one who uses a third party who vet prospective tenants. The tennants sign a contract/lease agreeing to the terms and as result this third party agree to pay me the full rental should there be any problems with the tennant missing payments, doing runners etc. OK they take 10% for this and I do have a model tennant (for the past 3 1/2 years) but you never know when situations like yours are going to crop up, and you can bet your bottom dollar that these guys will have them out in the blink of an eye if they're having to stomp up the rent for them.
    As for the poster who said their landlord turfed them out after 1 month, both parties have to agree to a minimum 6 month let by law.

    The length of the tenancy is decided by both parties, it can be any period not a minimum of 6.

    Like I said, they asked us if we would leave after a month if they paid a little towards the moving costs, but obviously we didnt, and stayed the full 6 months we were entitled to.

    "both parties have to agree to a minimum 6 month let by law."

    You can agree to any length of fixed term contract. there is no law that states the minimum length of contract.
    Assured shorthold tenancy contracts are normally 6 months, but i've seen them for various periods of time from 3 months up to 7 years

    OP, please keep us updated. It could help for any other Landlords in the future.
