Step 1 – We will serve an eviction notice to your tenant
£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. This document, sent with a strongly worded letter written by us, is often all that is needed to evict your tenant and/or collect the rent arrears. We will send this within 48 hours of you instructing us.
The cost of Step 1 is £100 (plus VAT). If we have to produce and send a second notice, this will cost an extra £100 (plus VAT).
Step 2 – We will begin 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, obtaining an eviction order against your tenant which asks them to vacate the property.
The cost of Step 2 (including court representation) is £600 (plus VAT), please note this does not include the court fee. If the court hearing or waiting period lasts longer than 15 minutes, we charge £75 for each additional 30 minutes. If the case is defended, or requires another hearing, extra charges will apply.
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 anything else you need to do.
