My tenant refuses to vacate the premises after the 6 month term of his AST. My home was managed by a real estate firm who sent him a notice to quit 2 months prior to the expiration of the term of the tenancy. He was expected to vacate the house on the 30th of June 2012 but is still on the premises and refuses to move. The management company have served him a Notice of Possession under Section 21, with an expiration date of 30th June 2012. The house is my principal home and I would like to have it vacated immediately. It appears that all necessary requirements for a court order have been met: notice expiration date coincides with the expiration of the term of the AST, the deposit was paid into the TDS, and I want to seek possession of my home. How can I accelerate the proceedings to ensure I get my house back as soon as possible without having to wait the 6 to 8 weeks for a court order?
