Sometimes in Lancashire, it can be really difficult to evict a tenant and you're supposed to follow a legal process to get this done in Blackpool, hence, Denbigh Franks have compiled a list of steps you can follow when evicting a tenant in UK.
This guide will give you help from Denbigh Franks to evict Shorthold Tenancies in Blackpool, both tenancies that are fixed-term in Fleetwood (run for a fixed amount of time) and 'periodic' Tenancies in Blackpool (that run month by month or week by week with an end date that isn't fixed).
You need to give your Blackpool tenants a Section 21 notice after a fixed term ends if you want the property in Lytham St Anne's back.
Provide them with a section 8 notice in case they have broken the terms and agreements of the Blackpool, Lancashire tenancy.
As determined by the conditions in the tenancy contract in Lytham St Anne's, there are variations in the notice, which may be as little as 2 weeks and as high as 60 days.
Generally, in Blackpool you will have to give 2 months' notice, however, there are also few exceptions e.g. when the tenant in Lytham St Anne's has been using the property for less than 6 months or if the property in Fleetwood is an HMO without a license.
A Professional Notice Servers service in Blackpool can be used to be able to make it easy in Lancashire for the tenant in Blackpool, Lytham St Anne's or Fleetwood to get eviction notices.
Once you provide the tenant in Blackpool, Lytham St Anne's, or Fleetwood with a notice and still they haven't moved out, then you will need to go to court in Blackpool to act by applying for an Order of Standard Possession.
In Blackpool, Lancashire, this costs £325.
You may also submit for a Possession Order that is Accelerated in Blackpool, Lancashire if you do not claim any rent arrears, which costs £ 355, but it is usually faster because there is no court hearing in Blackpool, Lytham St Anne's, or Fleetwood.
You need to enter a form at Blackpool, Lancashire's nearest County Court.
A copy will be sent to the tenants in Blackpool, Fleetwood, or Lytham St Anne's through the Lancashire County Court of your area, which they have 14 days to reply.
The Blackpool judge can decide to prolong the period assuming that the tenant is going through a trying moment.
The final step of evicting tenants is to apply to the Lancashire court for Warrant for possession, which is done after the first 2 steps and if tenants in Lytham St Anne's, Blackpool, or Fleetwood still refuses to move out.
The tenants in Lytham St Anne's, Blackpool, or Fleetwood will be removed from your property with the help of bailiffs from Denbigh Franks, where you have to pay £121 for the Warrant of Possession.
To accelerate the process, you can request for the case to be transferred to the High Court from the County Court of Lancashire, and a Denbigh Franks enforcement officer from the High court will carry out the eviction.
This is only possible if you are requesting more than £ 600 with court costs in Blackpool, Lancashire.
