If you want your shorthold tenancy tenants in Surrey to vacate your property in Guildford, Woking-Byfleet, or Crawley, serve them either the Section 8 or Section 21 notice, which are supported by the Housing Act, 1988.
A Section 21 notice is served to a Surrey tenant by Denbigh Franks to give them 'notice of seeking possession' of the property.
The section allows you to take over your property in Surrey, Surrey, once a fixed-term tenancy agreement ends.
If you serve a valid Section 21 notice in Surrey, you don't need to provide any reason for your claim.
A Section 8 eviction notice is required in Surrey, Surrey, when you have grounds for eviction.
For instance, the tenant has not paid the rent in Woking-Byfleet, is causing a nuisance in Guildford or has damaged the property in Crawley.
So, Section 8 notice is served when the tenant in Surrey has breached the agreement of tenancy.
However, if your tenant disagrees, the case would then be settled in Surrey court and you may be required to produce a proof of the reason for evicting the tenant.
You can send notices spontaneously and both notices produce the same result and get you the possession of your property in Surrey back.
In the practical sense, a Section 21 is not a notice of eviction, but is used to notify your tenant in Surrey that you would like to repossess your property in Woking-Byfleet, Guildford, or Crawley as soon as they have vacated your property.
First of all, the notice of no less than 2 months will be served to the Surrey tenant, in which they are asked to vacate the property in Surrey at the end of the term.
If a fixed term of the tenancy comes ends or there is a break clause that can be triggered, in Surrey you can serve a section 21 notice of possession.
Also, you may give it out regardless of whether the leaseholder in Surrey is complying without you stating any grounds for retrieving your asset in Surrey.
But it must be served in the right way if you want to enforce it legally in Surrey.
The 2015 Deregulation Act brought changes to the way tenancies can be concluded using the Section 21 procedure.
Initially, it only applied to Surrey lease agreements during or after 1st Oct. 2015.
Nevertheless, it applies to all tenancy agreements in Surrey starting 1 October 2018 regardless of the time the tenant signed.
The most significant and valid rules are:
Denbigh Franks can't issue a section 21 notice during the first 4 months of tenancy, however, a landlord can issue a section 21 notice any time during the renewed tenancy in case the tenancy in Surrey has been redeemed after the termination of a fixed term.
The validity period of the Section 21 notice is 6 months from the date it was issued, so another notice will need to be served if the possession proceedings in Surrey, Surrey are not initiated within 6 months' period.
If an authentic complaint is made by your tenant in Surrey concerning the condition of the rental property in Surrey and you do not handle it, the problem may have to be referred to the local housing authority by the tenant; The validity of a Section 21 notice is lost if it is issued after a notice has been served by the local housing authority.
Using the Form 6A with the Section 21 is correct.
In order to make the Section 21 valid, the following information must also be provided to the Surrey tenant while the tenants start renting:
Gas Safety Certificate
An EPC (Energy Performance Certificate)
At the start of every new tenancy, the tenants must be given "how to rent guide"
You can begin the process of eviction in Crawley, Woking-Byfleet, or Guildford by issuing a section 8 notice if you have one or more grounds for eviction in Surrey.
Schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988 provides grounds applicable for issuing a Section 8 Eviction order in Surrey.
Likely reasons for the eviction of the tenant in Surrey, Surrey are:
Damage to the premises
For order to inform the renters in Woking-Byfleet, Crawley, or Guildford use Section 8, you will fill in the' Application requesting possession of the property on the protected tenancy or on the secured farm occupation.'
On the notice, you will have to mention the grounds for eviction in Surrey and issue the notice two months or two weeks before depending on the terms you are using.
In case your tenants in Surrey don't leave by the stated date, then you will be able to apply to the Surrey court for a possession order.
If you have served the eviction notice with Denbigh Franks and your tenant in Surrey does not leave your property, start making plans.
Moreover, you can use a quick possession order in case you served a Section 21 notice in Surrey as there is a written tenancy agreement and you aren't declaring any rent that hasn't been paid.
In case you handed either a Section 21 or 8 notice in Surrey or wish to recover your residence in Guildford, Crawley, or Woking-Byfleet and at the same time claim rent debts from the tenant, you may make use of the regular possession claim.
If the tenant in Surrey remains at the expiration of the possession order, the Surrey County Court Bailiff may evict the tenant on your order, a court hearing may come up if your tenant raises a serious objection or if your paperwork is out of order, and the entire process should be over within six and ten weeks.
