Do I apply to the court for a possession order if the tenant appears to have left?
Possession - Section 8 and Section 21

I have served a Section 21 on a tenant and he appears to have left taking most of his belongings. I'm pretty sure he has left as I've changed the locks to protect the remaining 2 tenants and he hasn't contacted me for a new key in over 2 weeks.
Do I need to actually get a possession order from the court to rent his room again or can I go ahead and clear the rest of his belongings and find a new tenant?
