Franklins’ tenant eviction service
When you contact us to help remove a bad tenant from your property, there are a number of steps we can take to resolve the situation.
Step 1: Servicing notice
Our first action will normally be to issue a written notice to the tenant demanding that they vacate the property and that any rent arrears is paid within 14 days.
Step 2: Court action
If the tenant does not leave, fails to repay their rent arrears, or does not come to some other acceptable agreement with 14 days, we will then immediately begin court proceedings on your behalf. We will obtain court orders for eviction and payment of arrears as appropriate.
Step 3: Instructing bailiffs
If the tenant does not respond to the court order or court orders issues, we can then instruct bailiffs acting on a court order to forcibly remove the tenant if necessary. Bailiffs may also be empowered to seize tenants’ possessions up to the value of their rent arrears to recover the debt you are owed.
How quickly can you evict a tenant?
If a tenant has broken the terms of their tenancy agreement, you can give them between 2 weeks’ and 2 months’ notice, depending on which terms they have broken.
If the tenant has not broken the terms of their tenancy agreement, but you wish to take back possession of the property, e.g. to carry out renovations or to sell the property, you will normally need to give 2 months’ notice.
