The section 21 was issued 10 days ago and gave tenant over 2 months notice. Tenant has said she will not move out in 2 months as cannot find anywhere in that time.
I will be moving back into the property and my tenancy will have expired so in a little bit of a sticky situaiton.

There are plenty of properties to let in the area.
Is there anything I can do now?

Thankyou

No. If the Notice was correct in all respects*, you must wait for its period to expire.

* plus:
a. any protectable deposit must have been protected (with one of the three schemes); and
b. any registrable HMO must have been registered (with Local Authority).

If the T will not move out in approx. 2 months, then you will have to go through the eviction process -there are no shortcuts.
