Eviction of Tenants: Understanding the Process
Evicting a tenant can be a daunting task, especially for landlords who are unfamiliar with the intricacies of the legal system.
After all, evicting a tenant from one of your properties is something no landlord wants to have to deal with.
There are many reasons why you may want to instruct tenant eviction specialists. A tenant may have gone against the terms of the assured tenancy, meaning you may want them to leave.
You may have setup a fixed term periodic tenancy agreement, only for the tenant to refuse to leave when you return.
It is important to know that help is available should the tenant not leave by the date you have outlined.
At DCBL, we are experts in eviction and guide landlords through each step efficiently and effectively.
From serving eviction notices to applying for a warrant for possession, we ensure landlords adhere to legal requirements. Throughout the different types of tenancy eviction processes, we are careful to protect their rights.
Serving Notices: Section 21 and Section 8
A Section 21 written notice is commonly used for evicting tenants in assured shorthold tenancies. It is a formal notification by a landlord to a tenant, requesting them to leave the property within a specified timeframe.
The specified timeframe is usually 2 months notice from the date on the Section 21 notice. The landlord does not have to provide a specific reason for terminating the tenancy.
If the tenant doesn’t leave by the date that is outlined, you can apply for an accelerated possession order.
A Section 8 notice is served when a tenant breaches agreement terms, such as rent arrears or anti-social behaviour.
Many of the landlords we help experience unpaid rent arrears and anti-social behaviour more than anything else.
The above may give you a better understanding of the notice you need to serve the tenant. Our specialists help serve the appropriate notice, ensuring it is done correctly and within legal timeframes.
Applying for a Warrant for Possession
As mentioned earlier in the article, a tenant must leave the property after the notice period ends. If they do not, landlords may need to apply for a warrant for possession.
This legal document authorises court bailiffs to remove the tenants from the property. DCBL’s high court enforcement experts can guide landlords through the application process.
We also ensure all the required documents are ready and present these documents to the court.
By handling this complex task, eviction specialists save landlords valuable time and help expedite the eviction process.
Possession proceedings and the action of seeking possession orders can confuse those unfamiliar with the process. At DCBL, we are proud to have helped hundreds of private landlords with this.
