Evicting a tenant can sometimes be a complicated process, and to do it legally, you will have to follow these steps carefully.
Give the Notice to Quit – Give your tenants a Section 21 notice if you want the property back after a fixed term-end. Or. And give them a Section 8 notice if they’ve broken the terms of the tenancy. After you give notice to the tenant, upon the expiry of the notice and they still don’t move out, then you will have to go to court and apply for a Possession Order.
Seek a Possession Order – You will need to apply to the court for a possession order. If the tenants still refuse to leave after taking the steps above. You have one final option: Applying to the court for a Warrant for Possession.
Apply for a Warrant for Possession – The bailiffs will enforce the warrant and evict the tenant from the property.
However, until 23 August 2020:
possession hearings are suspended
possession orders will not be enforced
Furthermore there are additional rules to follow once 23 August arrives.

Landlord has mistakes on the section 21 notice?
Your section 21 notice might not be valid if your landlord has made mistakes on it, for example if they’ve spelt your name wrong or put the wrong date. Check your section 21 notice to make sure your name and address are correct. You should also check the name and contact details of your landlord or letting agent are correct.
