    Yes, a court order is always required for all circumstances where a tenant doesn’t leave. It’s essentially the same as if the tenant gave a notice to quit – they just gave a surrender instead.

    Please be aware obtaining possession on the basis of a surrender could be very complex (not least because it’s not very common and it’s also more complex).

    The use of a solicitor would be good advice.
