Has anybody used the government gateway online money claim? How long does it take, and can it be started whilst tenant is still in the property?

I have just registered and taken a look. Fee is £25 up to £300, £35 up to £500, £60 up to £1000£70 up to £1500 to be claimed etc,

I am wandering how long it takes to get notice of claim to tenant. My thinking is rather than pay £280 to put S21 in to court it may be worth £60 to have a demand there next week and say surrender tenancy today and I'll call it off. I reckon most people would go out of fear.

But it seems too simplistic am I missing something?
