In case a tenant in Exeter, Devon, has already broken the tenancy terms, issue him/her with a Section 8 notice.
Depending on the terms of the agreement in Crawley, the notice may vary from just two weeks to two months.
In general in Devon's Exeter, you will need to give a two months notice, but there are some exceptions, for example, if the property in Crawley is an HMO that doesn't have a license, or if the tenant in Luton has been in the property not up to six months, etc.
There is such a service in Exeter, Devon of Professional Notice Servers, with which you can be sure that your Luton, Exeter, or Crawley tenants have received a notification.
After you've notified your occupants in Exeter and they refuse to pack out, then your next course of action in Luton, Crawley, or Exeter, is to go to court and request a Standard Possession Order.
