Shocking eviction statistics revealed.
The law should protect…
The next step to evicting a tenant is to make an application for possession.
If the tenant does not vacate the property following the expiry of the Step 1 Legal Notice then an application to court can be made for possession. The type of application made depends on the nature of the case. Our unrivalled knowledge, expertise and efficiency means we can offer our first class services at significantly reduced cost.
There are two types of application for possession. We’ll be happy to advise the most suitable route.
Standard Application from £1,548 including VAT and court fees
This is most suitable when the court is likely to need explanations – for example, if there are any issues with paperwork or the grounds for eviction are disputed. A tailored application will be made, and the court hearing will need to be attended by the landlord or agent.
Accelerated Application From £1,238 including VAT and court fees
This can only be used to recover possession of the property. It does not permit any other claim, such as for rent arrears. In most cases, the landlord or agent will not need to attend court.
If the tenant does not leave the property as required by the possession order (or does not return the keys), the next step is to instruct a bailiff. This is Step 3.
