    I would also not do the former, as you have offered a new fixed term tenancy, and you cannot prove whether they have accepted it or not.

    A Sec 21 is valid until a new tenancy is granted.
    It has no time limit.

    I wouldn't say "Never" leaks, but I would say it shouldn't leak when it rains. There is a way to stop the rain getting in when it rains. Albeit temporary.

    It was the 6 months part I didn't get. Thanks.

    So, this runs out after 6 months.

    Just wait until the Sec 21 notice expires, and then evict her.
    Informing the authorities you may be breaking the law will not help you.

    You would have illegally evicted them.
    Google "Illegal eviction" for details on maximum punishment terms.

    What "would" happen is not a question anyone can give you an answer to.

    If you are certain that the tenant or one of her guests have caused the damage, get it fixed and evict them.
