As part of a portfolio of properties purchased from a estate, one property is tenanted (without doubt would be on an AST), but we have no agreement.

The tenant has not responded to letters requesting a copy of their AST or their status.

In order to evoke a responce as we would prefer to not have to relet, but if need be will evict, how can we mov forward...

section 21 but how should we date? wait two months section 8 what arrears amount??

No necessarily an AST - depends when it began, whether any other agreement has been re-signed since. Have you any idea when current tenants moved in? There are other types of tenancy which are very difficult to change/end and normal notices would not apply.

But do you know the date?

If so, you can do a s21(4)(a) but not via the accelerated process.

If not, slghtly more complex in so far as you need to serve a 'no date' section 21 and then give three months before you can apply for possession (again, not accelerated) in order to ensure that the next tenancy period end isn't 1 month and 30 days from the date of service.

Then as per my post #4. It will not be a speedy process, but it is 'do-able'.
