Sometimes, it may be cumbersome to successfully evict a tenant, and if you want to evict a tenant legally in Bath, Somerset, you may be required to do it according to steps from Denbigh Franks.
This Denbigh Franks article mainly talks about Assured Shorthold Tenancies, both 'Regular' Tenancies (run on a weekly or monthly basis with no fixed date) and fixed-term tenancies (usually run for a given set amount of time) in Somerset's Abbas Combe and Burton.
Upon the completion of a fixed term in Abbas Combe, if you would like to have your property back, send a Section 21 notice to your tenant in Somerset.
However, if in Bath they have acted contrary to the tenancy agreement, you would be giving them a Section 8 notice in Somerset instead.
On top of that, Abbas Combe notices can change from two weeks to two months, but this is based on the terms of the tenancy agreement.
In Somerset, you will need to notify about this in two months although there are exceptions (for example, if the tenant has been in the ownership for less than 6 months in Abbas Combe, if the property without a license is an HMO in Bath, etc.).
If you want to make sure that the notice is delivered to the Bath, Somerset tenant, you can consider using the Bath, Burton, or Abbas Combe professional notice server's service.
If the tenants, after receiving notice in Bath, Burton, or Abbas Combe, still don't move out then you will have to approach the court of Bath and apply for a Standard Possession Order.
The cost of this order in Somerset's Bath, is 325 pounds.
You may also submit for a Possession Order that is Accelerated in Bath, Somerset if you do not claim any rent arrears, which costs £ 355, but it is usually faster because there is no court hearing in Abbas Combe, Bath, or Burton.
You are required to fill out a form at Bath, Somerset's County court.
Tenants in Bath, Abbas Combe, or Burton, will then receive a copy from the Somerset court and will need to reply within 14 days.
That term may be prolonged by the judge in Bath if the client is in serious difficulty.
However, there are times when Bath, Burton, or Abbas Combe tenants refuse to leave after taking all the above measures, and in this case, you have one final decision: Applying to the Somerset court for a Warrant for Possession.
Here, the tenants in Abbas Combe, Bath, or Burton can be removed at a cost of £121 by Denbigh Franks.
If you want to speed up things, request for the case to be transferred to the High Court from the Somerset County Court and an officer from the High Court from Denbigh Franks will handle the eviction.
This can only be done if you are demanding more than £600, which includes Somerset court fees in Bath.
