Serving Notice to Recover Property

Most tenancies are Assured Shorthold Tenancies and Landlords cannot recover their property without serving notice on the Tenant. The easiest way is by serving a Section 21 Notice.

This notice is a Two month notice.

Please note: If your Tenancy began after April 2007 and you took a deposit from your tenant, you must have registered the deposit in The Deposit Protection Scheme, if you failed to do so, you will not be able to recover your property using Section 21 Notice. IF THIS IS A PROBLEM PLEASE CALL FOR ADVICE.

WE WILL SERVE NOTICE ON YOUR BEHALF AND PROVIDE YOU WITH A CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE

Serving Notice for Arrears

If your tenant owes you rent, then you need to serve the relevant Notice on them. This Notice is a Section 8 Notice and is only valid if the Tenant owes at least 2 rent payments. It covers many different Grounds for recovery of the Property and any rent arrears. Not all the Grounds of this notice will be Mandatory Grounds for Possession. Section 8 Notices can also be used for Breach Of Tenancy or Nuisance.

In most cases this is a two week notice.

WE WILL DRAW UP A SECTION 8 NOTICE AND RENTAL ARREARS SCHEDULE SERVE IT ON YOUR BEHALF AND PROVIDE YOU WITH A CERTIFICATE OF NOTICE.

The court process

Unfortunately, not all Tenants will vacate a property on expiry of the relevant Section Notice and it may become necessary to go to court.

The next step is sometimes quite confusing for Landlords and if not dealt with correctly may result in you not being successful in court.

Expert analysis of your individual case and advice on the correct path is essential.

WE WILL PREPARE ALL DOCUMENTATION AND SUBMIT TO COURT. WE WILL ADVISE YOU OF ALL MATTERS RELATING TO THE CASE.

In most cases Section 21 Proceedings can be allocated on the Accelerated Route for Possession. This means that only in exceptional circumstances will the courts order a Hearing, therefore appearing at court should not be necessary, however, all Section 8 Proceedings must have a Hearing in which case you will be required to produce witness statements and attend court.

WE CAN DRAW UP ALL WITNESS STATEMENTS, SUBMIT THEM TO COURT AND SERVE ON YOUR TENANT. WE CAN ARRANGE FOR REPRESENTATION IN COURT BY ONE OF OUR ASSOCIATED SOLICITORS OR BARRISTERS.
