Sometimes, evicting a Torbay tenant can be a bit challenging and complicated in Devon and you must follow some evicting steps from Denbigh Franks carefully to avoid finding yourself on the other side of the law.
The following guide by Devon's Denbigh Franks on the eviction process only applies to Assured Shorthold Tenancies in Cockington and Torquay, 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.
In case you in Devon want the residence back after a fixed term ends in Maidencombe, provide your tenants with a Section 21 notice.
But if they broke the terms of the tenancy in Torbay, Devon, then you give them a Section 8 notice.
The issuance of notices is possible to be done from a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of two months depending on what the terms are in the tenancy agreement in Cockington.
The eviction notice in Torbay is given two (2) months prior to the eviction in Devon, except in cases where the Cockington tenant violated or broke the terms of the tenancy, such as when the property in Maidencombe in question is an HMO without a license or when the Torquay tenant has been in the property for under six (6) months.
To make sure in Torbay that your Devon tenants get the notice, you can also avail the services in Maidencombe, Cockington, or Torquay of Professional Notice Servers.
After you notify the tenant in Torbay, and he still does not leave, you will have to go to court in Cockington, Maidencombe, or Torquay and apply for a Standard Possession Order.
You can get this in Torbay, Devon, for just £325.
You may also submit for a Possession Order that is Accelerated in Torbay, Devon if you do not claim any rent arrears, which costs £ 355, but it is usually faster because there is no court hearing in Maidencombe, Torquay, or Cockington.
At Torbay, Devon's County Court, apply for a possession order.
The court in Devon will then send a copy to the tenants in Torquay, Cockington, or Maidencombe, who will be required to respond within 14 days.
The period can get an extension if the Torbay tenant is in a problem.
You can apply in Devon for a Warrant for Possession against a tenant in Cockington, Torquay or Maidencombe that doesn't leave your property after taking the necessary steps to evict them.
In this case, bailiffs from Denbigh Franks can get the tenants out of your property in Cockington, Maidencombe, or Torquay and it costs £121.
If you want to speed up things, request for the case to be transferred to the High Court from the Devon County Court and an officer from the High Court from Denbigh Franks will handle the eviction.
This is only applicable if you're claiming more than £600, including Devon court costs in Torbay.
