    How to get tenant out

    I want to sell my property and have already tried to sell it with tenant in situ for the last six months but have had no luck. Had a few viewing but no offers.
    Estate agent said I need to evict the tenant.
    I'm happy to pay for this service to get it right first time and have seen landlord actions adverts on this site .

    I don't really want any more contact with the tenant I just want them out asap so am I right to leave it in the hands of a specialist company like L.A?

    If you dont know how to do it then yes. It may take a while if you havent served the correct paperwork


      I get the impression that certain companies push clients down the s8 route to garner fees from court appearances, rather than suggesting an easier diy s21 eviction. Do some reading here about s21 before giving a lawyer a payday, IIWY.

      • How best to handle a "pet" issue?
        Our tenants have been in our rental for nearly 4 years without issue. The original fixed term tenancy agreement gave way to a periodic tenancy. The tenants have been good, if rather untidy!

        Over the weekend while performing some maintenance while the tenants were away on holiday for a...

      • Landlord CCTV camera pointing into shower cubicle
        Hello all,

        I'm a tenant and have just moved into a rented property under a 6 month fixed term AST. The landlord lives next door.

        After moving in, I discovered that the landlord has a CCTV camera affixed to this property on the roof, with clear line sight into our en suite...

        Having made such accusations, you can expect a section 21 notice at the earliest opportunity, but, if you are right, blocking the window will deny the offender entertainment until you can be removed, and they can't even seek possession until after the six months end.

      • “Reasonable time”
        Hi all,

        Probably not the normal ‘reasonable time for repair’ post from a tenant because I’m actually more looking to back my argument that it doesn’t HAVE to be sorted as quickly as everyone is saying and they need to chill out!

        We came back from our week honeymoon...

        What jpkeates says..... the landlord sounds like they are in the dark at the moment, i would consider no hot water as urgent, i know of properties where the bathroom only has a bath and a hand shower run from the taps !!! Kettles will not help here. So yes a day or two to get an engineer out then see...

      • Tenancy Guarantees
        I have collected together almost everything I have said on guarantees. It has come to 11 pages of text which is going to take a bit of editing for which I find I have little enthusiasm, at least at the moment. In the meantime I set out below everything I have collected. There is some repetition - but...

      • Tenant withdrawing notice
        I accepted tenants' notice to quit their SPT mid period. Their leaving date is really badly timed for me (2 weeks into summer hols, preventing me taking the kids abroad).

        The notice wasn't valid, since it didn't end on the first or last day of the monthly SPT, but I did accept it. Now,...

        They wanted to leave 10th August, now it's 13th August. I don't use an agent and I did the check in, so would prefer to do the check out. They are decent people, if slightly incompetent and they don't have lots of money, so they will need their deposit back ASAP. I want to work on their side, but want...

      • Tenants divorcing/separating

        I’ve just had a text off one of my tenants. Sadly he and his wife are separating. She is staying in the property with the kids he is moving out. I need to change the tenancy agreement. It’s now a “rolling contract” having previously been a six month assured tenancy.
