We agree that in Ashford, Kent, evicting a tenant can be a daunting task especially when it comes to the legal formalities and you will need to follow the legal process through Denbigh Franks's following steps.
Above all, the guide Denbigh Franks published herein are based on Ashford's Fixed-Term Tenancies that run for a specific period, Assured Shorthold Tenancies running weekly, and Periodic Tenancies that run monthly without a specific end date in Acton and Bagham.
If you want the property in Acton, Bagham, or Challock back after the end of a fixed term, then give the occupants in Ashford a Section 21 notice.
Please give them a notice under Section 8 if they have broken the terms of the tenancy in Ashford, Kent.
The legal eviction notice is between 2 weeks to 2 months depending on tenancy agreement terms in Bagham.
However, there are some exclusions in Kent, for instance, when the building in Challock is an HMO that does not have a license or when a tenant in Acton has occupied the property for less than 6 months.
If you in Ashford, Kent, want to make sure your tenants receive the notice, then you need to use a Professional Notice Servers service in Acton, Bagham, or Challock.
After you've notified your occupants in Ashford and they refuse to pack out, then your next course of action in Acton, Challock, or Bagham, is to go to court and request a Standard Possession Order.
In Ashford, Kent, this would cost you £325.
In Ashford, Kent, you also have the opportunity to file for a Possession Order that is Accelerated if you are not claiming any rent that is unpaid in Bagham, Challock, or Acton, which costs £355.
You need to enter a form at Ashford, Kent's nearest County Court.
The court in Kent will then send a copy to the tenants in Bagham, Challock, or Acton, who will be required to respond within 14 days.
The judge can extend the period if the tenant in Ashford is in serious condition.
In case your tenant in Bagham, Challock, or Acton declines to move out after following the two steps above, you have one last option which is applying for a Warrant for Possession in the Kent court.
This means that bailiffs from Denbigh Franks can take the tenants in Acton, Bagham, or Challock out from your residence and this service costs £121.
If you still need to speed up the process ask the transfer of the case from the County Court of Kent to the High Court, and the High court enforcement officer of Denbigh Franks will ensure the eviction.
In Ashford, Kent, this only applies if the tenant is owning you in excess of £600 inclusive of court costs.
