    Tenant fiddled with the electric ...

    You do have to ask yourself is this the sort of hassle you want? This tenant isn't a long term proposition. The fact she's asked you for a letter (eviction) says it all. You may even get out of this one with the rent paid until the end if you do as she's requested, which is a chance I would take. Without electricity the writing is on the wall for this tennacy anyway.

    Eviction process takes very long. Don't delay and start today. That way when you actually want her evicted you don't waste unnecessary time.

    """"She's txt me today and asked for an eviction letter which we all know the council say stay put until the Bailiffs arrive."""""


    Issue her with an s8 today, No s21.  People like this should not have council housing stock or help wasted on them. Yes, even if current landlord takes longer until they leave.

    Another way round it, and to save the long drawn out eviction period, and expense, is to get a prohibition order on the house, by environmental health, as it has no electricity. She's have to leave immediately. Of course, you'd then have to re-instate the electric, and get prohibtion order lifted.
