Are you asking how to evict them, or are you simply asking how to word the letter to the "housing people" (presumably your local authority's housing department)?
Have they shown you this requirement of the housing dept.? Eg. letter..
I think we are asking how to word the letter correctly to the housing people. As all we've been told is that my father had contacted them and he has been told they will help them out of this situation if we write a letter explaining our side of the problem.
Look forward to your next reply.
If you are just writing a letter to confirm you consider that you can no longer house them then something like this should suffice:-
Dear Sir or Madam
INSERT PROPERTY ADDRESS - NAME OF PARENTS
I write following my decision that our accommodation can no longer house my parents, INSERT NAMES, and upon their request to inform you of our decision. I own the freehold of the property with my husband and I attached Land Registry evidence of title for your information. The size of the house is such that it causes considerable tension and strain on our relationship, leaving very little living space where my husband and I can have any privacy.
I have given my parent's notice to vacate the property and this will expire on [INSERT DATE, at least one month). Please correspond with my parent as to their housing options at this address.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
You should download a copy of the registered title for your property showing ownership from the following Land Registry website:-
