Evicting a Margate tenant in Kent, UK can be complicated, but there are steps from Denbigh Franks to follow if you want to do that legally.
This guide will give you help from Denbigh Franks to evict Shorthold Tenancies in Margate, both tenancies that are fixed-term in Broadstairs (run for a fixed amount of time) and 'periodic' Tenancies in Margate (that run month by month or week by week with an end date that isn't fixed).
Upon the completion of a fixed term in Margate, if you would like to have your property back, send a Section 21 notice to your tenant in Kent.
But if they broke the terms of the tenancy in Margate, Kent, then you give them a Section 8 notice.
Depending on the terms of the agreement in Broadstairs, the notice may vary from just two weeks to two months.
You must give a 2 months' notice in Margate, Kent, but there exist some exceptions (like, if the tenant in Margate for less than 6 months has been in the premises, if the premises in Ramsgate is an unlicensed HMO, etc.).
