Oh dear!! What a nasty kettle of worms we have here - firstly I have to be careful - what I am saying now is an opinion - not advice - the tenant who has run off still has a liability to pay the rent. Until he is 2 months in arrears you will not get possession under grounds of non-payment. He has to give you notice formally so that we know he has relinquished all responsibiilty on the property. The girl and her bloke who are there at the moment are there illegally - not on the contracts. However, if you have personally accepted rent from them then it will be deemed that you have accepted them as tenants and therefore they will be on an AST. As a landlord you have to give 2 months notice to your missing tenant - strange but true. I imagine that the others, not being on the contract are there illegally and therefore suggest that you seek legal advice - click on solicitors above. Not much jopy I am afraid, but about the best we can do for you!
