Rent refund vs charges

Hi I have a tenant who is in a 'professional let' house. Was working when he came to me and lost his job a year ago. His rent is always late between 7 and 14 days)and I always have to chase him usually by text reminder.

He declines my requests to reschedule his payments to fall in line with the 4 weekly payments from the council.

I have not sent his official letters yet. We have a clause in his AST making a charge for letters not for texts (now remedied in the new AST)

Q1. My mortgage company says I am not allowed unemployed people in this house therefore should I give notice anyway?

Q2. Should I enforce the reschedule of the payments?

Q3. When is appropriate to send a letter reminder and how do i recover the charge? from his deposit?

Thank you
