It might be tempting during an error of judgment to use unlawful methods to evict a tenant from your rental property, but you need to follow the proper legal steps even if it’s time-consuming and tedious. Not doing so puts you at the risk of criminal charges, losing your possession claim, and paying your tenant’s legal fees which is something to avoid.
Unlawful ways to evict a tenant include: locking the doors, prohibiting access to parts or all of the property, intimidating the tenant, removal of their possessions, and forceful eviction.
You can serve a section 8 notice at any point during the tenancy if your tenants have broken the terms of the tenancy agreement, for instance, by failing to pay their rent. The valid grounds for serving a section 8 notice are set out in schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988.
To give your tenants notice using a Section 8, you must fill in a ‘Notice seeking possession of a property let on an assured tenancy or an assured agricultural occupancy’.
Section 21 of the Housing Act outlines a landlord’s process for serving notice to tenants. Depending on the scenario, it may be necessary to serve a possession order to the tenant. In court, a standard possession order comes at a cost of £325.
For rent arrears, landlords can provide tenants with a two-week notice to pay or vacate the property. If payment is not received, landlords can pursue rent arrears and serve additional eviction notices. Other lease violations may also warrant notice, and we can assist with drafting and serving it accurately.
It’s crucial to follow strict procedures to ensure tenants are not wrongfully evicted from their homes. We offer access to legal advice to guide you through this process. Failure to adhere to the rules could result in a successful defence from the tenant.
