To remove a tenant from your property, the correct legal procedures must be followed by obtaining a Court Order for possession, and if necessary a Warrant for Eviction, which must be executed by a Court Bailiff.
If you evict a tenant without following the correct procedure, you will be evicting the tenant unlawfully which could result in legal action against you. This can include a claim for compensation or even an injunction to get the tenant back into the property.
It is important to seek legal advice from the outset; our team of specialists are on hand to guide you through and advise on the most appropriate legal defence and assist landlords who face action against them.
