Would like to seek advices on this matter:

I am currently living in tenanted house with several other tenants with no written agreement for more than 5 years. It means that all this while, we have a verbal agreement with the landlord. But in May 2015, due to some problems such as problematic tenants who bring damages to the property, the landlord has decided to prepare a written agreement which stated me as a sole tenant and eventually making me as a master tenant of the property.

In the written agreement, it is clearly stated that I am not allowed to sublet the property. I have informed the other tenants regarding the landlord decision and have given 30 days notice to the other tenants to move out from the property since it is clear that I am violating the agreement. The problem is now, the other tenants refused to move out. I am thinking of changing the locks and throw out their belongings from the property but I am scared it is illegal and I can be sued by the other tenants for that. Is there any other ways that I can evict them from the property without causing any troubles?

Thanks in advance.

If you lock them out or throw out their things, you would be doing something illegal.

The correct procedure is to get a Court Order.
But why should you go through the trouble and cost to get a Court Order?
It would be easier for you to move out and let the landlord deal with them.
