Ejecting a tenant from their rented premise in Wigan, Greater Manchester can be a complicated process sometimes, in order to achieve this legally, one has to follow Denbigh Franks's following steps.
Denbigh Franks's guidance covers guaranteed shorthold stocks in Greater Manchester, including 'periodic' holdings in Wigan (run week by week or month by month with no defined end date) and Ashton-in-Makerfield long-term holdings (run for a set amount of time).
The first and foremost step in Wigan is to send Section 21 notice after the fixed term in Skelmersdale is over.
In case a tenant in Wigan, Greater Manchester, has already broken the tenancy terms, issue him/her with a Section 8 notice.
Depending on the terms and conditions of your Ashton-in-Makerfield tenancy agreement, the notices may vary from 2 weeks to 2 months.
In general, though, a 2-month notice in Greater Manchester is ideal, but here are some exceptions to this rule though, such as if the tenant in Skelmersdale has been using the property for less than six months, if the property in Ashton-in-Makerfield is a license-less HMO.
It is recommendable in Greater Manchester to use a professional notice server service in Wigan, Skelmersdale, or Ashton-in-Makerfield to ensure the tenant in Wigan is served with the eviction notice.
