There Are Four Key Stages That We Follow In The Rent And Property Recovery Process
We issue a Letter Before Action to the Tenant which states the value of the arrears, and the right to proceed with possession of the property if the arrears are not paid. In most cases the arrears are paid and we do not take the matter further.
We will prepare and serve the relevant notice(s) on your Tenant if they continue to stay in arrears. This should be enough to get them to leave.
On expiry of the notice(s) if the Tenant has not complied you will need to apply for a Possession Order via the County Court.
If the Tenant does not leave on or before the date on the Possession Order, we will arrange for a bailiff to remove the Tenant.
