In most cases, before a landlord can obtain lawful possession of their property, notice must be first served upon the tenant providing the relevant notice period for the tenant to give up possession of the let property. Where the notice seeking possession of the property is not complied with the landlord can then seek a possession order from the court. Once a possession order is obtained ordering the tenant to give up vacant possession of the let premises, a warrant or writ for possession can then be issued which is an application for the county court bailiff or high court enforcement agent who will physically evict the tenant.
There are different types of agreements to let premises, providing different rights to both landlords and tenants; we will determine the relevant notice to serve and assist you if gain possession of your property if instructed. The default tenancy is an assured shorthold tenancy (under the Housing Act 1988 as amended) the most common notices used by landlord are therefore the section 8 and 21 notices under the Housing Act 1988.
