Tenant evictions - Taylor&Emmet LLP | Sheffield Solicitors

Unwanted tenants?

We specialise in obtaining possession for landlords and recovering rent arrears in the UK and Wales from bad tenants.

When you have a difficult tenant, you need a legal expert to take the stress out of eviction and/or rent arrears recovery. Our approach is a clear three step process charged at a fixed rate, so you can expect an efficient service without the fear of amounting a huge bill along the way

STEP 1 - Eviction notice

£100 plus VAT

First, we will read all the documents that you have in relation to the tenancy so we fully understand the situation, ensuring we serve the right sort of notice. A service of notice informs your tenant that you want to evict them and/or that you are taking legal action to recover any rent owed to you.

STEP 2 - Possession proceedings

£600 plus VAT

If the eviction notice doesn’t work and your tenant is still occupying your property and/or owes you rent, it is time to begin court proceedings. This can be a daunting prospect, so we will do all of the necessary preparation to get the court order, we will pay the court fee and if necessary, we will represent you in court...

STEP 3 - Evicting your tenant

£100 plus VAT

If the tenant still refuses to leave your property after they receive a court order, your next legal option is to use a court bailiff to evict them. We can arrange this and payment on your behalf and we will let you know what eviction date has been set, and advise you on.


£100 plus VAT

We will pursue your tenant for rent arrears on a fixed fee basis. Consider at the outset what you know about the tenant. Are they worth chasing? For example, if the tenant is claiming benefits or is a student it may not be proportionate to spend money pursuing the debt.
