It is important to point out that in Rotherham, evicting a South Yorkshire tenant might not be as easy as you thought and you don't have to brainstorm for long on how to go about it because Denbigh Franks have come up with legal strategies you can use when evicting a tenant.
The following guide by South Yorkshire's Denbigh Franks on the eviction process only applies to Assured Shorthold Tenancies in Rawmarsh and Wath Upon Dearne, which there are two types, 'Periodic' tenancies- run weekly or monthly with an end date that isn't fixed, and Fixed-term tenancies- run for a set amount of time.
Upon the completion of a fixed term in Rotherham, if you would like to have your property back, send a Section 21 notice to your tenant in South Yorkshire.
Let them have the Section 8 notice in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, in an instance where they have been broken the tenancy terms.
Depending on the terms of the agreement in Rawmarsh, the notice may vary from just two weeks to two months.
Nevertheless, you are normally required to issue 8 weeks' notice, however, some situations in Rotherham are exempted, for instance, in Rawmarsh, when the tenant has occupied the premises for less than 6 months or in Rotherham, the premises is an HMO and unlicensed.
It is recommendable in South Yorkshire to use a professional notice server service in Rotherham, Wath Upon Dearne, or Rawmarsh to ensure the tenant in Rotherham is served with the eviction notice.
If you have already issued your Rotherham 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 Rawmarsh, Wath Upon Dearne, or Rotherham.
This order in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, will cost you £325.
If you would not be placing any claims for unpaid rent in South Yorkshire's Rotherham, you can also submit an application for an Accelerated Possession Order in Rotherham, Rawmarsh, or Wath Upon Dearne, which costs £355 and is not only fast but can also be done without any court hearing.
You need to enter a form at Rotherham, South Yorkshire's nearest County Court.
