POSSESSION CLAIMS SOLICITORS IN LONDON

 

Our property solicitors will prepare and serve the appropriate notice upon your tenant, in many cases the tenant will vacate the property at this stage. If the tenant does not vacate the property after receipt of the Stage 1 notice, we will prepare a claim for possession of the property and file it with the court; also work in preparing a witness statement and attending the court hearing on your behalf; in most cases, the court will order that the tenant leave the property within 14 days. If the tenant does not leave the property by the date ordered by the court, we will arrange for a bailiff to attend the property and evict the tenant,

We know that regaining possession of the property as quickly as possible is a Landlord’s number one priority, however, if the court makes an order for the tenant to pay any unpaid rent or the legal fees for the possession proceedings, we will also advise you on the next steps and best methods to recover the money owed to you.
