    If the tenant was still on the lease, regardless of unpaid rent, then the landlord would be acting illegally. In effect it's an unlawful eviction and the landlord can be fined.

    Only a bailiff can evict anyone with a court order.

    If the landlord wants the tenant out, then s/he needs to follow the correct eviction proceedings.
