    You could report them to the council (about the unregistered dog).

    Report them to the council and keep things professional. Also be firm that they have to be out, no exception. That way they know you are serious and hopefully won't try and stay!

    Is there a limit with the council of the number of animals? Can you contact them as the landlord to enquire on how many animals are registered at the property. Are you wanting them out earlier that when the lease expires? Get printouts of text messages and copies of any emails and voicemails as a record of your correspondence.

    We manage our own rentals too and have for a long time. It can be a massive headache when you have dodgy tennants or start to get the impression that things are going to go pear shaped. Its a matter of weighing up whether they are being annoying or are causing damage beyond normal wear and tear to the property. Having rent paid (even if it is occasionally a bit late and they make it up again) is better than a trashed house and no rent. Even if you have landlord insurance, it is easier to get them out voluntarily/amicably than going down the eviction road. We've done a few evictions with our rentals, one last Nov an immediate one. You need to know your powers and the laws back to front if you go this way and it is for serious stuff, not just the irritating stuff. If the extra pets are causing the place to stink, are wrecking the garden, damaging carpets etc... and your paperwork/evidence can back you up... Then a breach notice may be the way to go. You can also breach them for really late rent, neglect, malicious damage etc. A breach notice will either give them a heads up to rectify the issue and keep you onside for a good reference, or it may jack them up and they may become worse. Only you will know which way they might go. I speak to the tennants about the issue first and give them time to fix it, if they dont fix it then breach, if they continue to stuff up then they can go elsewhere and be someone elses problem. I don't work my backside off to be a charity. I treat our good tennants like gold. I'm no doormat for bad tennants.

    I hope yours come to their senses and get their act together. If not, things may get worse before they get better. Don't be afraid to haul them to the tribunal if they are not paying rent or seriously damaging the place. The court orders are gold to hand over to a debt collector or the sheriff. If they stuff around with payment after that you can get them listed for credit default, which I've only chosen to do to one ex tennant.
