There are not many Rent Act tenacies left nowadays and as you have discovered, the tenants are very hard to shift. You will have to establish the 'Grounds' on which you wish to gain possesion but there are not many options available if you already have your own home. The only way they can be removed is if they seriously breach the tenancy agreement. You could also buy them out compensating them out of your own pocket-yes you will have to provide a property of similar standard in the area and they are entitled to refuse but only if the offer is unreasonable. If you purchase a property for them you will still have to grant them the same tenancy terms at the same rent, almost impossible if in a high rent area or if the tenancy is registered under The Rent acts. I would try to find a cheap property in the area that is big enough to accomodate them then offer it to them for a slightly cheaper rent if possible. Not easy under the current climate but it's worth a try.
