Sometimes in Devon, it can be really difficult to evict a tenant and you're supposed to follow a legal process to get this done in Paignton, hence, Denbigh Franks have compiled a list of steps you can follow when evicting a tenant in UK.
This article from Denbigh Franks in Devon 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 Marldon and Brixham.
In case you in Devon want the residence back after a fixed term ends in Torquay, provide your tenants with a Section 21 notice.
But if they broke the terms of the tenancy in Paignton, Devon, then you give them a Section 8 notice.
Notices can differ dependent upon the tenancy agreement in Torquay, which means it can be from 14 days up to 2 months.
Nevertheless, in Devon's Paignton, you will need to issue an eviction notice two months before but some situations in Torquay, Marldon or Brixham 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 Paignton want to ensure the notice is certainly received by your tenants in Devon, you can enlist the services of Professional Notice Servers in Marldon, Brixham, or Torquay.
After you've notified your occupants in Paignton and they refuse to pack out, then your next course of action in Torquay, Brixham, or Marldon, is to go to court and request a Standard Possession Order.
The cost of it in Devon's Paignton will be £325.
In addition, if you are not protesting for unpaid rent in Devon's Paignton, feel free to request for an Accelerated Possession Order in Marldon, Brixham, or Torquay which will cost you £355 and is normally quicker since court hearing is not included.
You are required to complete a form at the County Court in Paignton, Devon.
Then the Devon court will send a copy to your tenants who will be expected to respond within fourteen days in Marldon, Brixham, or Torquay.
But if the tenant is in some serious trouble the Paignton judge can extend this period.
In case your tenant in Marldon, Brixham, or Torquay 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.
For a cost of £121, from your property in Torquay, Brixham, or Marldon, Denbigh Franks bailiffs can remove tenants.
In order to accelerate the process, you may require transferring the case to the High Court from the Devon County Court and a High Court enforcement agent from Denbigh Franks will conduct the eviction.
This is only possible if you are requesting more than £ 600 with court costs in Paignton, Devon.
