Sometimes evicting a tenant from Kensington can be a complicated process, and by understanding the law in Greater London you can do it effectively and legally, and to do so, there are steps from Denbigh Franks follow.
This guide has to do with Assured Shorthold Tenancies in Kensington, Greater London, both 'Periodic' Tenancies (which runs weekly, monthly, with no specific end date) and fixed-term tenancies (which runs for a fixed amount of time) in Acton, Acton Green, and Bayswater.
You need to give your Kensington tenants a Section 21 notice after a fixed term ends if you want the property in Acton Green back.
However, if in Kensington they have acted contrary to the tenancy agreement, you would be giving them a Section 8 notice in Greater London instead.
Keep in mind that the Acton Green notice can vary from 2 weeks to 2 months, depending on the terms of the tenancy agreement.
Except for some exempted situations in Acton, Acton Green, or Bayswater, issuance of a notice of eviction will have to take place before two months in Kensington, 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.
To ensure that the Greater London's Kensington tenants receive eviction notices with ease, you can go for a Professional Notice Servers service in Acton, Acton Green, or Bayswater.
If you have already issued your Kensington 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 Bayswater, Acton Green, or Acton.
It's going to cost £ 325 in Kensington, Greater London.
If there are no unpaid rents in Kensington, Greater London to claim, apply for a more expensive and faster Accelerated Possession Order in Bayswater, Acton Green, or Acton, without a court hearing at a cost of £355.
You will have to complete a form by going to the County Court within Kensington, Greater London.
In Bayswater, Acton, or Acton Green, the tenants will then receive a copy from court in Greater London and tenants will have to reply it within 14 days.
In the event that the tenant is in great difficulty, this period may be extended by the judge in Kensington.
The final step of evicting tenants is to apply to the Greater London court for Warrant for possession, which is done after the first 2 steps and if tenants in Acton Green, Acton, or Bayswater still refuses to move out.
In this scenario, Enforcement agents from Denbigh Franks can go ahead and oust the occupants from your property in Acton, Bayswater, or Acton Green, which attracts a fee of £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 Greater London and a Denbigh Franks enforcement officer will conduct the removal of the tenant.
This can only be done if you are demanding more than £600, which includes Greater London court fees in Kensington.
