Evicting tenants can be a daunting process, so whether your tenant is in rent arrears, or has breached their tenancy in another way you need a legal team that understands the intricacies of Housing Law. With the help of our specialists, the eviction process can be dealt with in the quickest and most cost effective way.
To allow us to deal with your case as efficiently as possible, we are required to see a copy of the most recent tenancy agreement, copies of any notices you have served upon the tenant, and proof that you have adequately protected the tenant's deposit.
In order to remove a tenant from a landlord property, the correct legal procedures must be followed by obtaining a Court Order for Possession, and if necessary a Warrant for Eviction, which must be executed by a Court Bailiff.
If you evict a tenant without following the correct procedure, you will be evicting the tenant unlawfully. This could result in legal action against you if you are a landlord and potential claim if you are a tenant.
This can include a claim for compensation or even an injunction to get the tenant back into the property.
It is important to seek legal advice from the outset; our team of specialists are on hand to guide you through and advise on the most appropriate form of action and assist landlords who face action against them.
