Sometimes evicting a rented property can be a complex process, and if you want to do it legally in West Sussex, West Sussex, Denbigh Franks have mentioned some steps below to follow carefully.
Denbigh Franks's guide regards West Sussex Assured Shorthold Tenancies that can be periodic in Worthing (after the regular interval with no fixed date) or fixed-term tenancies in Littlehampton (run for a set amount of time).
If you want the property in Worthing, Bognor Regis, or Littlehampton back after the end of a fixed term, then give the occupants in West Sussex a Section 21 notice.
However, if in West Sussex they have acted contrary to the tenancy agreement, you would be giving them a Section 8 notice in West Sussex instead.
The notice of eviction in Littlehampton can differ from 2 weeks to 2 months based on the tenancy agreement.
Generally, the landlords in West Sussex are required to send a notice of at least 2 months, although there are some anomalies in West Sussex, such as, if the tenant in Bognor Regis has not resided in the property for at least 6 months, or if the property in Littlehampton is an unlicensed HMO.
Moreover, you may use a West Sussex's West Sussex Professional Notice Servers service in Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, or Worthing to ensure that your tenants get the notice.
If the tenants in Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, or Worthing, do not move out despite issuance of a notice of eviction, you will have to ask for a Standard Possession Order from the West Sussex court.
Filing this order costs £325 in West Sussex, West Sussex.
If there are no unpaid rents in West Sussex, West Sussex to claim, apply for a more expensive and faster Accelerated Possession Order in Littlehampton, Bognor Regis, or Worthing, without a court hearing at a cost of £355.
To apply for this order, you will need to fill a form at the County Court of West Sussex's West Sussex.
Then the West Sussex court will send a copy to your tenants who will be expected to respond within fourteen days in Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, or Worthing.
The judge can extend the period if the tenant in West Sussex is in serious condition.
This step is to guide you in case the Worthing, Bognor Regis, or Littlehampton tenants have defied the steps provided above, where the final solution is: You need to apply for a Warrant of Possession from the Court in West Sussex.
In this situation, Denbigh Franks bailiffs have every right to remove the tenants in Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, or Worthing from your property and this costs £121.
You can request to shift the case from County Court of West Sussex to High Court if you speed up the process, then the eviction will then be carried out by a Denbigh Franks High Court enforcement officer.
The applicants in West Sussex are allowed to use this facility if the claimed amount is more than £600 in West Sussex.
