In Sutton, Greater London, the process of evicting a tenant can be complicated and there are steps by Denbigh Franks that you will need to follow to do it legally.
This post from Denbigh Franks is concerned with Sutton's Assured Shorthold Tenancies which include fixed term tenancies (they run for a certain period of time) in Bandonhill and periodic tenancies (run monthly or weekly without fixed end date) in Carshalton.
If you want the property in Bandonhill, Carshalton, or Hackbridge back after the end of a fixed term, then give the occupants in Sutton a Section 21 notice.
In case a tenant in Sutton, Greater London, has already broken the tenancy terms, issue him/her with a Section 8 notice.
The notices in Bandonhill may vary from 2 weeks to 2 months depending on the tenancy agreement's terms.
However, generally, it is advisable in Sutton, Greater London to give your tenants a two months eviction notice, but there are exceptions, for example, in Bandonhill, in the event that the tenant has stayed in the property for less than six months, or in Carshalton, if the premise is an HMO without a license.
To make sure in Sutton that your Greater London tenants get the notice, you can also avail the services in Bandonhill, Hackbridge, or Carshalton of Professional Notice Servers.
After you notify the tenant in Sutton, and he still does not leave, you will have to go to court in Hackbridge, Bandonhill, or Carshalton and apply for a Standard Possession Order.
It's going to cost £ 325 in Sutton, Greater London.
Also, you should ask for an Accelerated Possession Order in Carshalton, Bandonhill, or Hackbridge worth 355 pounds if you do not file a complaint against unpaid rent as a Court hearing does not take place in Sutton, Greater London, hence it is usually quicker.
You just have to fill in a form at the County Court of Greater London's Sutton.
In Hackbridge, Bandonhill, or Carshalton, the tenants will then receive a copy from court in Greater London and tenants will have to reply it within 14 days.
The period can get an extension if the Sutton tenant is in a problem.
If still the tenant in Hackbridge, Bandonhill, or Carshalton has refused to vacate your property after the court order date has expired, you will need to go to the court in Greater London for a final time: Applying for a Warrant of Possession.
In this situation, Denbigh Franks bailiffs have every right to remove the tenants in Carshalton, Hackbridge, or Bandonhill from your property and this costs £121.
So as to speed up the process, you can seek to transfer the case from the Greater London County Court and have it in the High Court, this way a High Court enforcement officer of Denbigh Franks will ensure the tenants are evicted.
You can only achieve this if you are requesting for more than £600 in Sutton and this includes costs from the Greater London court.
