A complex procedure needs to be followed in Devon, Devon in order to expel a tenant if you want to make it legal, so it is imperative you follow these Denbigh Franks steps.
This post from Denbigh Franks is concerned with Devon's Assured Shorthold Tenancies which include fixed term tenancies (they run for a certain period of time) in Exeter and periodic tenancies (run monthly or weekly without fixed end date) in Exmouth.
Notify your Devon tenants of Section 21 if you want the property in Barnstaple to be returned after a fixed term has ended.
When a tenant in Devon has dishonoured terms of the tenancy in Devon, a Section 8 notice must be provided instead.
The issuance of notices is possible to be done from a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of two months depending on what the terms are in the tenancy agreement in Barnstaple.
You must give a 2 months' notice in Devon, Devon, but there exist some exceptions (like, if the tenant in Exeter for less than 6 months has been in the premises, if the premises in Exmouth is an unlicensed HMO, etc.).
You can opt to make use of a Devon Professional Notice Servers service in Devon to ensure that your tenants receive the notice without fail in Barnstaple, Exmouth, or Exeter.
If you have already issued your Devon tenants with an eviction notice and still they do not evacuate, you will need to move to court and request for a Standard Possession Order in Barnstaple, Exmouth, or Exeter.
The cost of this in Devon, Devon, is around £325.
If you would not be placing any claims for unpaid rent in Devon's Devon, you can also submit an application for an Accelerated Possession Order in Exeter, Barnstaple, or Exmouth, which costs £355 and is not only fast but can also be done without any court hearing.
You are required to complete a form at the County Court in Devon, Devon.
In Devon, a copy would then be sent to the tenant in Barnstaple, Exmouth, or Exeter, and a reply would be expected within fourteen (14) days.
That term may be prolonged by the judge in Devon if the client is in serious difficulty.
In case your tenant in Exmouth, Barnstaple, or Exeter 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 Devon court.
The tenants in Exmouth, Exeter, or Barnstaple 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.
Separately, it is worth noting that to expedite the procedure, you can ask to transfer the case from the Devon district court to the High Court, and a law enforcement officer of the High Court from Denbigh Franks will conduct an eviction.
You can only achieve this if you are requesting for more than £600 in Devon and this includes costs from the Devon court.
