We understand that problem tenants cause huge disruption to a landlords business; including disputes with lost rental income and delays in being able to re-let property. We therefore recognise that when faced with such difficult circumstances, swift action needs to be taken to mitigate that disruption and loss, whilst ensuring the process is conducted both fairly and legally.
Our service includes:
We are also able to investigate whether you may have legal costs funding as part of your insurance policies on request.
Yes. Our Landlord complete team is solicitor led to ensure the right advice is provided at each step of the way.
We operate a fixed fee service for un-defended and non-disputed claims. If your claim is defended then we offer a competitive hourly rate.
Once you have served the correct notice, if your tenant continues to refuse to vacate the property, then the next step will be issuing court proceedings to seek an order for possession.
No. It is a criminal offence to unlawfully evict a tenant without a court order obtained thought court proceedings for possession. If a landlord unlawfully evicts a tenant, the landlord could be liable for a prison sentence, a fine and the tenant being reinstated to the premises.
There is not set or guaranteed timeframe. How long the process takes varies depending on which procedure is being used, whether the claim is defended, the court's own resources and availability, and whether or not the tenant leaves the property when they are ordered to by a court.
s. 21 notices must be a minim of 2 months long whereas s.8 notices based on rent arrears are a minimum of 2 weeks.
We estimate that for undefended court proceedings, a s.21 claim would result in a court order approximately 6 to 8 weeks from the date of issue of the claim. A s.8 claim typically results in a court order approximately 10 to 12 weeks from the date of issue of the claim, mainly because this process involves a court hearing.
Beyond this, if the tenant fails to vacate in accordance with the court order, and a court bailiff needs to be appointed, the process of actually obtaining possession will take longer.
If the claim is not defended, then it is unlikely you will have to attend court as we will represent you. However, if the claim is defended, then the landlord may need to attend. We will advise you at each step of the way so that you know where to be and what will be expected of you at a hearing.
Usually within 7 or 14 days of the date of the Possession Order. Although in cases of exceptional hardship, a court may afford the tenant up to 42 days.
No. We handle possession claims relating to properties located throughout England and Wales.
