Sometimes, evicting a Colchester, Essex tenant may be a difficult and problematic situation so, if you wish to do it lawfully, it is important that you follow Denbigh Franks's steps with caution.
Denbigh Franks's guidance covers guaranteed shorthold stocks in Essex, including 'periodic' holdings in Abberton (run week by week or month by month with no defined end date) and Clacton-On-Sea long-term holdings (run for a set amount of time).
If you need to return your property in Colchester after the deadline, you must give your tenants in Abberton notice in accordance with Section 21.
You should issue the tenant in Colchester, Essex with a notice of Section 8 if he/she has already gone against the tenancy terms.
Depending on the terms of tenancy agreements, notices can have a variation of 2 weeks to 2 months in Colchester.
Except for some exempted situations in Abberton, Colchester, or Clacton-On-Sea, issuance of a notice of eviction will have to take place before two months in Colchester, an example of an exempted situation can be your property being an HMO without any license or a tenant whose stay has been below six months in your owned land.
Moreover, you may use a Essex's Colchester Professional Notice Servers service in Colchester, Clacton-On-Sea, or Abberton to ensure that your tenants get the notice.
In most cases, the Colchester, Abberton, or Clacton-On-Sea tenant doesn't move out even after the notice, then, in Colchester, you will have to apply for a Standard Possession Order from a court.
This costs £325 in Colchester, Essex.
In Colchester, Essex, 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 Colchester, Clacton-On-Sea, or Abberton, which costs £355.
At Colchester, Essex's County Court, apply for a possession order.
A copy of this form will be forwarded by the Essex courts to the tenants in Abberton, Clacton-On-Sea, or Colchester, who must reply under 14 days.
The Colchester judge can decide to prolong the period assuming that the tenant is going through a trying moment.
In case your tenant in Colchester, Clacton-On-Sea, or Abberton 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 Essex court.
For a cost of £121, from your property in Abberton, Clacton-On-Sea, or Colchester, Denbigh Franks bailiffs can remove tenants.
It is important to point out that you may want to facilitate the process by asking for a transfer of the warrant from the Essex County Court to the High Court, and a Denbigh Franks High Court Enforcement Officer can conduct the eviction.
This can only be done if you are demanding more than £600, which includes Essex court fees in Colchester.
