Evicting a Tyne and Wear tenant can be a difficult process in Newcastle, particularly when it comes to the legal formalities, so you will need to adhere to these steps from Denbigh Franks.
Moreover, Denbigh Franks's guide involves Assured Shorthold Tenancies in Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, which include both 'periodic' tenancies in Wallsend, which runs weekly or monthly with no fixed end date, and fixed-term tenancies in Washington, which runs for a period.
Provide your Tyne and Wear tenants with a section 21 notice if you would like the Tynemouth premise back after an agreed fixed term comes to an end.
A section 8 notice is served to the tenant in Newcastle when you have grounds for eviction such as violation of tenancy agreement terms, rent arrears, nuisance or damage to the Tyne and Wear property.
Depending on the tenancy agreement terms in Tynemouth, notices can be issued from two weeks to two months.
Generally, in Newcastle you will have to give 2 months' notice, however, there are also few exceptions e.g. when the tenant in Washington has been using the property for less than 6 months or if the property in Wallsend is an HMO without a license.
In Tyne and Wear's Newcastle, to ensure that your tenants receive the notice in Tynemouth, Washington, or Wallsend, you can make use of the Professional Notice Servers.
