The tenant eviction process is complicated to ensure that tenants have a reasonable amount of protection from being made homeless. Many landlords feel that the law and the judges (who have considerable discretion when deciding whether or not to evict a tenant) favour the tenant. Therefore, the first step is to thoroughly assess your current situation by reading through all paperwork relating to the tenancy. By doing this we can check whether you have complied with the many legal requirements associated with renting residential property. If you have overlooked any of these regulations we will advise you how best you comply. Remember, you cannot evict a tenant if any of the following have to been seen to: proper execution of the tenancy agreement, deposit registration, HMO license, disrepair issues, gas and electrical safety matters.
Secondly, we will prepare and serve the necessary notices requiring possession so that you can repossess your property and try to recover monies owed from unpaid rent and damages. We charge £175 inclusive of VAT for this.
Thirdly, there is a significant possibility that the tenant will not respond to the notices after receiving legal advice of their own. In this case we will submit the appropriate claim and associated evidence to the local county court covering your property. These claims are technical in nature and the complex court rules have to be strictly followed. We fully manage your claim for your peace of mind.

We charge £775 (inclusive of a £355 court fee, £3 land registry fee, our fees & VAT) for making the application to the Court under the 'Accelerated Possession Procedure'. This application will request an eviction order only. This application follows a Section 21 Notice that was prepared based on a written signed Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement. This sum includes the Court fee, our fees, and VAT.
Court Proceedings Following a Section 8 Notice (eviction based on rent arrears)
£1,000 (inclusive of a £355 court fee, £3 land registry fee, £114 advocate’s fee, our fees & VAT) for making an application to the Court under Possession Proceedings normal route. This application will request an eviction order and County Court Judgement for any rent owed. This application follows a Section 8 Notice. This sum includes the Court fee, court representation fee for one hearing, and our fees, and VAT.
Lastly, once the court has ordered the tenants to leave they may not do so on advice from their legal advisers. In this case we instruct the court bailiffs and the police to physically remove all persons found at the property. The latter are the only people who are legally permitted to use force to clear a residential property.
We charge £220 (inclusive of our fees, VAT, and the £121 court fee) for making an application to the Court to instruct the County Court Bailiffs, completing the risk assessment questionnaire, and writing to inform you of the date and how to prepare for the appointment, confirming with the Court that the appointment date is acceptable.
