Landlords may need to be able to evict tenants for various reasons. However there are strict regulations and processes that need to be followed to gain possession property and to legally evict a tenant.
The process can be complex and therefore, it is vital that you seek legal advice as early as possible.
Any landlord who wishes to take possession of their property must follow the legal process. Forcefully evicting a tenant or changing the locks without permission is against the law and landlords can face criminal proceedings if they do so.
Our team are on hand to advise on the best course of action after reviewing your individual matter.
A section 8 notice can be served if the tenant has breached a clause in their tenancy agreement, most commonly, not paying rent. Alternatively, a landlord can use a section 21 notice (also known as a Notice of Possession) to regain possession of the property at the end of the Assured Tenancy or during the periodic tenancy.
Our expert team will advise you on the best type of notice to serve, depending on your specific circumstances, including the reasons for wanting possession and the status of the current tenancy agreement.
