Need to Evict a Tenant?
Painless 3 Step Expert Eviction Process...
Proper Lawyers - Fixed Fees from just £47...
Optional Preliminary Stage - Arrears Letter - £47
If your tenant has been defaulting under their tenancy then our expert lawyer-drafted letter on law firm letterhead might of itself do the trick and could keep an otherwise historically good tenant in your home whilst saving the cost of the further steps below. It possibly saves on serving the section 21 notice to quit or section 8 notice.
THIS STEP IS WORTH PURSUING BECAUSE IN COMBINATION WITH OUR NOTICE, IT BECOMES EFFECTIVELY FREE (SEE BELOW).
Serve Properly Drafted Notice On Tenants - £79
Hint: we offer the following fee possibilities at these early stages:
Preliminary Step (as above): £47
Step One: £79;
Preliminary Step PLUS Step One: £79
Accordingly, this is the cheapest part of the main process and usually the most effective.
This notice is signed and served by our qualified lawyers who draft either a s21 notice or a section 8 notice - or you may beadvised to have BOTH.
Whichever route is best for you - section 21 or section 8 - the accuracy of the notice is guaranteed.
WARNING: THIS IS WHERE MOST POSSESSION CLAIMS FALL DOWN MEANING THE CLAIM GETS STRUCK OUT AND SO COSTING MONTHS OF TIME, WASTED LEGAL FEES AND POSSIBLE FINANCIAL LOSS.
Some landlords think that the law is straightforward but it is not. We are often left to 'pick up the pieces' after a landlord has carried out the work themselves or by not utilising a regulated law firm. This approach can sometimes cost a landlord thousands of pounds and months of delay. In short, you may as well get it right from the beginning by coming to us in the first place.
The good news is that, if done right, tenants tend to leave at this stage in our experience. In summary, for a modest initial fee you can rest assured that you have got the foundation of any future possession claim right first time.
Only if they do not leave do we move on to...
Issue Possession Proceedings at Court - £497 FIXED FEE (plus current court fee)
We are proper lawyers with the additional right to conduct litigation and so we are fully authorised to undertake tenant eviction litigation for you.
WARNING: DO NOT TRY TO PHYSICALLY REMOVE A TENANT YOURSELF. YOU WILL COMMIT A CRIMINAL OFFENCE.
FURTHER WARNING: MANY OF OUR COMPETITORS PRESENT THEMSELVES SO AS TO LOOK LIKE LAW FIRMS BUT ARE NOT. THEY CANNOT CONDUCT THE CLAIM ON YOUR BEHALF (THAT WOULD BE COMMITTING A CRIMINAL OFFENCE). THEY CAN ONLY TAKE YOUR MONEY, FILL IN SOME FORMS AND THEN GET YOU TO DO THE REST.
This is why it is best to use us.
Again, it is an offence for any individual to issue proceedings in a court on behalf of another unless they have been granted that right by an appropriate regulator. With us, you have a properly regulated, insured and authorised legal representative on your side...
FURTHER WARNING: YOU SHOULD ONLY INSTRUCT A PROPER LAWYER TO GET THIS JOB DONE. THAT'S WHAT YOU GET WITH US FROM DAY ONE. WE CAN SIGN THE COURT DOCUMENTS. MANY OF OUR COMPETITORS CANNOT, YET THEY CHARGE SIMILAR FEES.
Get the Bailiffs In - £229 (plus current court fee)
This step has become increasingly necessary as councils tend to insist that they will not rehouse tenants unless or until the landlord has not only a possession order but also a date for the bailiffs to attend and ensure that possession is granted to the landlord.
Like all other aspects of the process, we keep the fee for this reasonable and fixed in advance. We understand the 'system' and our panel of experts know how to obtain maximum effect in the minimum time.
Please note that we also have a newly introduced pre-action stage (see top of this page). Most will need to start our 3 step process at step 1 or 2. However, the new preliminary step may be something that suits particular circumstances...
