Do you have a tenant(s) who is/are not paying the rent?
Do you have a tenant who refuses to leave the property after the tenancy agreement has come to an end?
Is your tenant in breach of some an obligation contained in the tenancy agreement?
Our aim is evict your tenants and get your property back for you as quickly and as simply as possible. We are here to take the pressure and anxiety that this process can cause away from you.
If you have bad tenants or you are encountering any of the following difficulties, London Repossessions can help. We will arrange, and implement the eviction process for you.
We can do this for you in three easy steps:
Serve notice seeking possession
We will serve a Notice on your problem tenant. It will warn them to pay the outstanding rent or to leave the property and it may be just what they need realise the severity of the situation. We will also provide you with a Certificate of Service.
Obtaining a possession order
We instruct our Legal Team to apply to the courts for proceedings to be issued against your tenant. A court date is arranged for the hearing on the earliest possible day available following instruction. An Advocate will attend the court hearing on your behalf and obtain the court order as required. Court Fess are also payable.
Once the court order for eviction is made, if the tenant does not leave we will apply for the order to enforced by the court Bailiff or if you select our fast track option, by High Court Enforcement Officers. If you have an existing possession order this can also be set on the Fast Track route.
High Court Writs
High Court Eviction
We can arrange to have your existing possession order transferred to the High Court, which can take weeks off the enforcement timescale and may save you a considerable amount of time and lost rental. While you are not in possession of your property you are losing money, to minimise this loss we can apply to fast track your eviction through the High Court.
Eviction by High Court Enforcement is the fastest, and in our experience the most effective method of removing your tenant when they ignore the possession order.
Under Section 42 of the County Court Act 1984, it is possible to request that a judge transfer the order to the High Court for enforcement by the High Court under a writ of possession. If you are owed rent, you can also add a claim for money to the possession order.
The benefit of using the High Court Sheriffs is that they can act very quickly to execute the writ and return your property to you. Often this can be within 24hrs of the writ being sealed.
High Court Debt Collection
We understand time is money, that’s why our transfer up service is the perfect way to manage your existing County Court Judgments that are over £600 and under 6 years old. It’s quick and simple to instruct us to arrange High Court Enforcement Officers to act on your behalf and achieve a swift and effective resolution.
High Court Enforcement Officers generally earn their fees from the debtor, but only when they collect. HCEOs tend to have significantly higher collection rates than those of the County Court Bailiffs, who are without any financial incentive to collect. HCEOs are also permitted to force entry into commercial premises when enforcing a judgement, a power not afforded to County Court Bailiffs.
It is often the case that landlords and managing agents choose write off former tenants rent arrears and other fees such un-paid insurance and dilapidation. There is a perception that do anything else is too expensive and too much hassle. Sometimes it is simply due to just not knowing where to start.
At London Tenant Evictions our specialist Former Tenant Arrears collection team will pursue your former tenant in order to obtain full payment or a sustainable payment arrangement on your behalf. If the tenant chooses to ignore the demands, we will review your case and recommend an appropriate way forward. Such action could potentially lead to, application for bankruptcy, attachment of earnings, court judgment, and even High Court Agents seizing their goods.
Where appropriate we can begin our collection strategy on a ‘No Collection, No Fee’ basis. Only where further recovery action is agreed by you will our fixed fee structure apply. By instructing London Tenant Evictions to collect your former tenant arrears, you are dealing with experts in this field who offer a complete start to finish solution, all under one roof.
On being faced with a tenant who still refuses to leave, landlords who opt for eviction by County Court Bailiffs by Warrant of execution will be required to arrange a locksmith and attend on the day to receive the premises from the Bailiffs.
For a great many Landlords this is not an attractive prospect, whether due to difficulty getting time of work or facing the possibility of confrontation with the former tenants. The latter being a very real possibility.
Our agents are able to attend in place of the landlord. Acting as their representative they will liaise with the bailiffs to ensure the matter progresses smoothly, receiving the property back, and signing the warrant as having been executed. In addition to this a photographic condition report will be made and meter readings taken if required. We are also able to arrange Locksmiths at a discounted rate, with the new keys being posted by Royal Mail “Signed For” delivery.
Once the tenants have left, it may well be that they will require supervised access to collect the remainder of their belongs. Should this be the case and on agreement with the landlord, our agents will retain the keys in order to facilitate this.
