Taking possession, as provided for in ยง 21 under the heading “without fault”, is not permitted in the case of guaranteed leases. As a landlord, the right to eviction can only be granted under Schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988, which describes the conditions for eviction. Prior to February 24, 1997, the normal lease was secured tenancy, as the owners did not understand what the procedure was for initiating a secured short-term lease. The agreement you have is very limited because you thought it was a simple license, so you didn`t specify the usual terms that would normally protect an owner in an AST. Thus, your tenant is not obliged to carry out repairs or fulfill other obligations. He or she must destroy the place before you can get him or her out. .
