Q1) The tenancy agreement says if my tenant does not pay rent, I the landlord can take possession. So can I evict my tenant as arrears have accrued without going to court?
A) Do not evict your tenant without a court order. You cannot evict your tenant without taking the correct court action.
Q2) What is a notice seeking possession?
A) A document which informs the tenant to leave by a specific date. A warning if they fail to leave, Court action for possession may follow. Note: Correct notice seeking possession must be served.
Q3) Who will serve notice a seeking possession?
A) We can draft and serve a notice seeking possession on your tenant.
Q4) How long will it take to get a court hearing?
A) Usually between 6 to 8 weeks.
Q5) Are there any hidden charges?
Stage one:There are no hidden charges, you pay a fixed fee of £79 inc. When you instruct us we draft the notices seeking possession and then serve the notices on your tenant.
Stage two: There are no hidden charges you pay a fixed fee of £539 inc. We assess the documents, we draft the required court papers and we pay the relevant court fees. We will bear the costs for a barrister or a Solicitor to plead your claim at court.
Q6) Once we have got a possession order how long will it take for the tenant to leave?
A) The possession order is generally a fourteen day order. Once possession order has been granted we generally find your tenant will leave within the 14 days. If the fourteen days have expired and the tenant is still in possession (which is rare) then we will need the court bailiffs to remove the tenant. There is a cost of £195 inc.
