Evicting a Tenant

If your tenant owes you money and you want to get your property back, evicting a tenant through a possession order may be necessary. However, the procedure for doing so is very strict. We recommend specialist legal advice to avoid charges of harassment or illegal eviction.

Firstly, you will need to issue the tenant with either a Section 8 or Section 21 notice, depending on the circumstances. Subsequently, a standard possession order or accelerated possession order will need to be applied for with the Courts. You may need a further warrant for possession if your tenants still won’t leave.

Astle Paterson offer a fixed-fee service for managing the process, evicting the tenant and recovering possession of your rental property.

Our solicitors provide tailored advice to recover your property quickly and stress-free.

Liam, I wish to thank you for the support and professionalism you gave to me. Without, you, Naomi and Nigel, I would not have got through this ordeal and although we had a fight on our hands with the case, we got there. At no point did I feel out of my depth due to all of you being there to guide me.

Thank you for your efforts in dealing with an exceptionally difficult woman.

Liam, you are simply the best … Thank you so much and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Without your support I would be still going around in circles … You have been my rock.
