We agree that in Newham, Greater London, evicting a tenant can be a daunting task especially when it comes to the legal formalities and you will need to follow the legal process through Denbigh Franks's following steps.
This article from Denbigh Franks in Greater London is a guide for Assured Shorthold Tenancies including the directions for 'Periodic' Tenancies (run weekly or monthly without any fixed end-date) or 'Fixed-term' Tenancies (run for a specific time) in Canning Town and Custom House.
The first and foremost step in Newham is to send Section 21 notice after the fixed term in Canning Town is over.
You should issue the tenant in Newham, Greater London with a notice of Section 8 if he/she has already gone against the tenancy terms.
The duration of notice can be from 2 weeks to 2 months, and it depends on the Custom House agreement.
Nevertheless, in Greater London's Newham, you will need to issue an eviction notice two months before but some situations in Beckton, Canning Town or Custom House are exempted, for example, in case your property is an HMO and does not have a license or if a tenant has been living in your property for less than six months.
If you in Newham, Greater London, want to make sure your tenants receive the notice, then you need to use a Professional Notice Servers service in Beckton, Canning Town, or Custom House.
You have the right to apply for a Standard Possession Order in the Newham court if the tenant of Beckton, Custom House, or Canning Town doesn't leave the property even after receiving the notice.

In case you are not clamming any rent arrears in Newham, Greater London from the tenant, you can apply for an Accelerated Possession Order costing £355 in Custom House, Beckton, or Canning Town, and its quicker because it doesn't involve a court hearing.
