Tenant and Section 21 Process – ‘I want you out…NOW’

Whether your preference is Eastenders, Emmerdale, Coronation Street, Neighbours or Hollyoaks (mine is Emmerdale if you are interested) you will have seen someone evicted from their property on the day they are told to leave.  Whether this is because Peggy is coming back from Portugal or you haven’t been paying Cain Dingle the rent is down to the scriptwriters…but so is the dreamland that they have put landlords in!

Anyone that has ever had to evict a tenant knows that simply telling the client to get out is not going to work – legally at least!  The majority of tenants these days have what is known as an Assured Shorthold Tenant (an ‘AST’) and the Housing Act 1988 (as amended) has specific processes which need to be adhered to in order to evict a tenant.  There is the section 8 process which requires a tenant to have committed a breach of their tenancy and the section 21 process which is also known as the no-fault process.  Which process should be used, the notice to be given as well as the notice itself depends entirely on the situation that you find yourself in but I am happy to advise on all so if you do require assistance in evicting a tenant please give me a call and I will be able to provide you with a fixed fee quote for dealing with your matter.

Phil Mitchell, if you are reading this, surely you are better off giving me a call and dealing with your next eviction by the legal route rather than spending more time at one of Her Majesty’s bedsits???
