    Is it best to use a solicitor to deal with eviction?

    We are about to issue Section 21. Is it best to use a solicitor or eviction specialist? Cann anyone recommend one? Would it be madness to consider doing it ourselves?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Issue s21, wait 2 months. They may leave before the final date on the notice. As long as you are confident your paperwork is in order, then download the n5b form and have a look at it.

    If you struggle with anything then ask further questions. If you're still not confident then you can contact the likes of landlordaction who deal with this stuff all the time.

      What Handson says and check your landlord insurance - you might be covered for legal work.

        If you're confident and don't mind a bit of stress, you can definitely do it yourself.
        If you're not both of those things, a specialist is a sensible investment.

        If you are going to involve one, do that before serving notice yourself - let them do the lot.

          If you do use a solicitor, ensure it is one that SPECIALISES in landlord/tenant matters. Most solicitors don't understand the detail, charming chaps that they are
          I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

            I would find it more stressful to use a solicitor. Most of them are weak on landlord & tenant law, and waiting to hear from them would drive me up the wall.

              I tend to agree with you on this - but a specialist service does have some appeal if it arises.
