If you haven’t left by the end of the two months’ notice then your landlord will need to apply for a court order from the County Court for a possession order.

A landlord cannot evict you without a possession order. Landlords might be able to get a possession order automatically or they may have to prove a reason for evicting you. This would lead to a court hearing.
