Sometimes, evicting a Wandsworth, Greater London tenant may be a difficult and problematic situation so, if you wish to do it lawfully, it is important that you follow Denbigh Franks's steps with caution.
Denbigh Franks will be looking at Wandsworth's Assured Shorthold Tenancies, which includes Putney fixed-term tenancies (which is for a specific period) and Battersea 'Periodic Tenancies' (which has no set timeframe and may run monthly or weekly) in this guide.
At the end of the fixed term in Greater London, you can simply give a Section 21 notice to the tenants in Balham if you don't want to keep them as tenants anymore.
Provide them with a section 8 notice in case they have broken the terms and agreements of the Wandsworth, Greater London tenancy.
The legal eviction notice is between 2 weeks to 2 months depending on tenancy agreement terms in Battersea.
In Greater London, you will need to notify about this in two months although there are exceptions (for example, if the tenant has been in the ownership for less than 6 months in Putney, if the property without a license is an HMO in Battersea, etc.).
You can use a Greater London professional notice server service in Wandsworth to ensure your tenants receive the notice on time in Balham, Putney, or Battersea.
If your Wandsworth tenant doesn't move out by the date specified on eviction notice, you can apply for a Standard Possession Order at the County Court of Balham, Battersea, or Putney where your property is located.
This costs £325 in Wandsworth, Greater London.
In Wandsworth, Greater London, in case you're not claiming any unpaid rent in Battersea, Putney, or Balham, you can simply go for an Accelerated Possession Order that costs around £355 which will be resolved quickly because there is no court hearing involved.
You need to enter a form at Wandsworth, Greater London's nearest County Court.
In Balham, Putney, or Battersea, 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 Wandsworth tenant is in a problem.
You can apply in Greater London for a Warrant for Possession against a tenant in Balham, Battersea or Putney that doesn't leave your property after taking the necessary steps to evict them.
In this situation, the bailiffs from Denbigh Franks will evict the tenants from your house in Putney, Battersea, or Balham. That's going to cost £ 121.
To accelerate the process, you can request for the case to be transferred to the High Court from the County Court of Greater London, and a Denbigh Franks enforcement officer from the High court will carry out the eviction.
Remember, it is only possible, if you're claiming more the £600 Greater London court costs in Wandsworth.
