Evicting a Bradford tenant in West Yorkshire, UK can be complicated, but there are steps from Denbigh Franks to follow if you want to do that legally.
Denbigh Franks's guide regards West Yorkshire Assured Shorthold Tenancies that can be periodic in Bradford (after the regular interval with no fixed date) or fixed-term tenancies in Keighley (run for a set amount of time).
If you don't want to rent out your property in Keighley at the expiration of a rent period, serve the Bradford tenant a Section 21 notice.
In case you find that they have broken the tenancy terms in Bradford, West Yorkshire, then send Section 8 notice.
The notice of eviction in Keighley can differ from 2 weeks to 2 months based on the tenancy agreement.
In general, though, a 2-month notice in West Yorkshire is ideal, but here are some exceptions to this rule though, such as if the tenant in Bolton has been using the property for less than six months, if the property in Keighley is a license-less HMO.
It is recommendable in West Yorkshire to use a professional notice server service in Bradford, Bolton, or Keighley to ensure the tenant in Bradford is served with the eviction notice.
You have the right to apply for a Standard Possession Order in the Bradford court if the tenant of Bradford, Keighley, or Bolton doesn't leave the property even after receiving the notice.
This may cost you about £325 in West Yorkshire's Bradford.
If you want to move the process quicker in Bolton, Bradford, or Keighley, you can apply for Accelerated Possession Order in Bradford, West Yorkshire, especially if you have no unpaid rent (it costs £325) to claim.
You are required to fill out a form at Bradford, West Yorkshire's County court.
Then, the court in West Yorkshire will send a copy to the tenants and they will need to reply in a period of 14 days in Bradford, Bolton, or Keighley.
In the event that the tenant is in great difficulty, this period may be extended by the judge in Bradford.
In case your tenant in Bolton, Keighley, or Bradford 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 West Yorkshire court.
In this case, bailiffs from Denbigh Franks can get the tenants out of your property in Keighley, Bradford, or Bolton and it costs £121.
In case you want to expedite the process, you can request a transfer of the case to the High Court from the County Court of West Yorkshire and a Denbigh Franks enforcement officer will conduct the removal of the tenant.
This is only possible if you ask for an amount greater than 600 pounds including the court costs in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
