    We don’t have any templates for this scenario (it’s quite rare) but we think keep it simple and to the point.

    I presume the activity is causing a nuisance or annoyance to neighbours and if so, that will most likely be a breach of the tenancy (although you should check the terms for the precise wording). You could quote the term of the tenancy in your letter.

    If you’re initial letter doesn’t work, you could serve a section 8 notice on the ground of nuisance although it’s exceptionally difficult to prove so we wouldn’t advise actually going to court on that ground.

    Ultimately, if the above doesn’t work, you could serve a section 21 notice. This is at least two months notice without giving a reason. Using that notice will enable you to get your property back and put somebody better in.
