Tenants can be evicted using a section 8 notice or a section 21 notice or both. 

We can handle the process from start to finish with our 3 stage fixed fee service:

When a payment issue arises, the simplest method is usually the most effective, we can:

 Serve legal notice demanding payment of rent and/or possession of the property.


FEE

Stage 2

COUNTY COURT

From our years of experience, we know most Tenants will leave after Stage 1, if not we can:

  Issue County Court proceedings, get a possession Date & CCJ for any rent arrears.


SECTION 8 FEES
£995 INC. COURT FEE OF £325.

SECTION 21 FEES
£995 INC. COURT FEE OF £355.

Stage 3

COURT BAILIFF

At this stage, if the Tenant has not vacated the property after Stage 2, we can:

   Instruct the County Court bailiff to physically remove them from your property.


FEE
£249 INC. COURT FEE OF £121.

For tenants who do not have a usual Assured Shorthold Tenancy, notice can still be given to end the tenancy and evict the tenant.  However, we will have to give specific advice upon the correct route to follow depending upon the type of tenancy that it is.


Section 21 notice

A notice can be used under section 21 Housing Act 1988 to evict the tenant either:

  • after a fixed term tenancy ends; or
  • during a tenancy with no fixed end date

A section 21 notice can only be served in a specific way and once the appropriate documentation has been given to the tenant.  The information that must be given to a tenant before a section 21 notice can be used is:

  • A valid Energy Performance Certificate;
  • A gas safety certificate;
  • The Government’s How to rent Checklist;
  • If a deposit has been paid, the deposit also needs to have been protected and the relevant information given regarding its protection.

How much notice must be given

A Section 21 notice must always give the tenants at least 2 months’ notice to move out of the property.

After the notice expires

If the tenants have not left by the date that has been set you can then apply to the local County Court to seek possession of your property.

If the tenants do not leave your property by the date that the Court sets then the County Court bailiff can be instructed to evict the tenants from your property.


Section 8 notice

If there has been any breach of the tenancy agreement by the tenants, such as the non-payment of rent, or because the tenant has caused nuisance to the local neighbours, then a section 8 notice can be served.

How much notice must be given

The most usual breach of the tenancy agreement is the non-payment of rent.  In that case, 2 weeks’ notice can be given to the tenants to pay the rent.

After the notice expires

If the tenants do not pay the rent arrears by the date that is set then Court eviction proceedings can begin in the local County Court.  The Court proceedings would claim the eviction of the tenants and a County Court Judgment for the amount of rent that is outstanding. 

If the tenants do not leave your property by the date that the Court sets then the County Court bailiff can be instructed to evict the tenants from your property.
