THE PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR LANDLORDS

SUMMARY INFORMATION

BACK TO MENU

What is not generally recognised is that the landlord cannot cease a tenancy, they can (politely) ask the tenant to leave, by way of a notice, and if that fails the landlord can apply to court to have that converted into a court order.

The procedure for this is:-

Issue the appropriate notice (request to leave);

If ignored apply to court to have converted to court order:-

Immediate or suspended

If still ignored apply to court for a bailiff’s order.

Generally will have to apply separately to recover any arrears – suggest use Money Claim Online   – www.moneyclaim.gov.uk

Note that the court can issue a suspended or immediate possession order.  If the tenant still fails to vacate a Bailiffs’ Order has to be sought.

However a tenant leaves it is vital to prove they have left voluntarily else there is a danger they can claim they were illegally evicted.  We suggest you use the iHowz Deed of Surrender.

There are two types of notices to be used for an AST:-

A Section 21, where no reason is required;

A Section 8 where a reason (a Ground) is required, generally lack of rent, but there are several other grounds as well.

See the NOTICES section.   Alternatively use the iHowz discounted Eviction Service.
