Late payers and agreement breakers - is 2 weeks notice enough?

Comments

The couple renting my house have split - the Assured Shorthold is in his name only and has lapsed into a periodic tenancy. He has moved out, leaving his wife and some guys he has illegally sublet to (in the granny annexe which is part of the let). Since a)he hasn't paid the rent(2 months on Dec 1st), b) has always been persistently late paying and c) have broken the agreement by subletting, can I give the man two weeks notice, rather than two months?

Also, although I've read the Housing Act, what am I required to put in any Notice I write to him and should I title the document "Notice of Intention" or similar?

And finally (if you're still awake!), are there any legal pitfalls I should watch out for, which may end up costing me money...

Many thanks,

John
