Hello. I have HB tenants who owe approx 6.5 weeks rent. I have served section 21 due to expire Sunday 15 December. Their HB was stopped/ restarted due to changes in circumstances ( he lost his job) . Anyway, situation at the moment is
I have spoken to LA to inform them family will be homeless soon.
Tenants (finally last Friday) took the S21 to council.
Both myself and tenants have informed LA that come Monday 16th they will be over 11 weeks in arrears. I have to send rent schedule which T has singed. She is also taking copy in by hand on Monday.
Hopefully this will be resolved soon to all our satisfaction with rent paid direct to me.

My question is, if I do not take action on the 15th to remove them, and situation is not resolved do I then have to issue another S21 for another 2 months. If so realistically this woul not be issued until Jan 15th for them to be out by March 15th.
