As a owner of the property you have got every right to vacate the tenant from the premises by way of filing Eviction Suit before the competent civil court.

Before filing the Eviction Suit you need to issue a legal notice directing him to vacate the premises as per the agreement.

In you notice you need to clearly state that you have returned advance amount to the tenant.
