Repossession and Eviction Notice Solicitors
The process of evicting tenants from a property can be difficult and stressful for all those involved. Whether you need expert legal advice as a landlord to help you remove tenants or you’re currently renting a property and you’ve been threatened with eviction, our expert repossession solicitors are standing by to help.
There are a number of reasons why you may wish to evict tenants from your property. Perhaps they’ve stopped paying their rent, or maybe they haven’t been keeping the home in good condition. It may be simply that the tenancy agreement you have in place is ending and you don’t wish to renew it.
Regardless of why you want to repossess your home, it’s essential that you follow the right legal procedures. If you don’t, your claim may be thrown out by the court. This is where the help of our eviction solicitors can prove invaluable. We’ll ensure that you take all the necessary steps and help you to achieve your aims as efficiently and effectively as possible.
The procedures you have to follow will depend on the type of tenancy agreement you have with the people renting your property. For example, if it’s an assured shorthold tenancy, you’re required to give your tenants a Section 21 notice if you want them to leave at the end of their tenancy term. If they’ve broken the terms of their tenancy agreement and you don’t want to wait until their fixed term ends, you must give them a Section 8 notice.
Once you’ve given your tenants appropriate notice, if they don’t leave by the specified date, you can apply to the court for a possession order. If they still won’t leave, you can then apply for a warrant for possession. This means bailiffs can remove them from the property.
Because of the strict regulations in place when it comes to giving an eviction notice and removing tenants from a property, it’s easy to make mistakes if you don’t have access to reliable legal advice. For further information about how we can help landlords seeking to evict tenants, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
While the majority of landlords behave lawfully when it comes to repossessions, some flout the rules. If you’re facing eviction from your home and you believe your landlord has acted unfairly or hasn’t followed all of the relevant regulations, we’re here to assist you.
