Where the service of the relevant possession notice or any discussions with the Tenant does not result in the desired outcome, we commence and conduct possession action on behalf of Landlords or property owners in the County Court, where possession is sought on any grounds.
This may include, for example:
Non-fault based grounds, including Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988;
Nuisance behaviour, including anti-social behaviour or drug related activity;
Other breaches of the tenancy agreement, including with regards to use (such as Air BnB lettings);
Unlawful occupiers, such as squatters.
We conduct all elements of the possession claim, including preparations for any Court hearing.
Where possible, we deal with possession claims without a hearing using the Court’s ‘accelerated possession procedure’, when possession is sought under Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988. This can be a quicker and more cost effective route to possession.
We see all matters through to conclusion, including enforcement of possession orders, where required, by eviction either through the County Court Bailiff or High Court Enforcement Officers. Where required, we advise on and take appropriate action to recover any rent arrears and/or costs incurred from the Tenant, once possession is obtained.
