At Eric H Smith Solicitors we aim to provide you with the best legal advice and service on evicting tenants and we as solicitors can help you prepare an action plan for you to evict your tenant.
Should your tenants not be out of the property at the end of their tenancy agreement or upon expiry of you serving a formal notice, we can arrange for a tenant eviction notice to be served on your behalf by us and have them removed.
Unlike many other organisations our team consists of specialist tenant eviction solicitors, we specialise in helping landlords to evict a tenant. We are regulated by the Law Society and promise that your matter will be dealt with by a solicitor from initial instruction to completion, avoiding delays and ensuring continuity.
The terms of your tenancy agreement will be checked by us and we will send the tenant the appropriate eviction notice. We will send a letter to the tenant(s) notifying them of their breach or expiry of their tenancy agreement and that you the Landlord want them to vacate the property. The tenants will have 14 days or 2 months (depending on the notice is served ) to comply.
Upon expiry of the notice period either 2 weeks or 2 months (depending on the notice served) we will require your confirmation as to whether the tenant has vacated the property, if they haven’t we will proceed to Service Level 2 upon receiving your instructions.
We will proceed to prepare your case by completing the appropriate court forms and collate all the necessary evidence and submit them to the court on your behalf, we will attend with you at the hearing in order to obtain a possession order. In the event you cannot attend the hearing we will prepare a witness statement which will need to be signed and returned by you before the hearing.
Upon the possession order being granted by the courts , the tenant has 14 days/28 days (depending on the order given by the courts) in which to vacate the property. Should the tenant not vacate, we will proceed to Service Level 3 upon receiving your instructions.
We will make and application to the court for a warrant to request the bailiffs to evict the tenant from your property. You or your agent will be required to attend on the day of the eviction taking place. Please note that in the event you do not have the keys / locks have been changed by the tenants you will need a lock smith to attend.
