Landlord Strategy & Negotiation

Are you a new Landlord who needs guidance on entering into an Assured Shorthold Tenancy with a Tenant?  I can talk you through all of the requirements you will need to have in place in order to ensure that you act in accordance with your legal responsibilities as a Landlord.  It is vital that you are compliant as any failures could result in problems in gaining possession of your property in the future.

Are you an established Landlord who has a Tenant in arrears of rent? Are they in breach of other terms of the Tenancy Agreement? If so, I can review all of your relevant documentation and liaise with your Tenant on your behalf to try and resolve any issues.  Should those negotiations be unsuccessful, I can advise you of the strategies available to help you move forwards.

Notices & Possession Claims

There are strict procedures that must be followed in order to regain possession of your property from a Tenant. If those procedures are not followed, this will delay (sometimes quite considerably) a Landlord gaining an Order for Possession. 

The first step is to serve a valid Notice Seeking Possession on your Tenant.  Once that notice period has expired, you can then issue Court proceedings for an Order for Possession.  It is very important that the Notice is completed and served correctly.  If it isn’t and you later issue Possession Proceedings, when a Judge reviews the documents, they will strike out i.e. cancel your claim, leaving you having to start the process all over again.  This will significantly delay the process and cost you more money.

I can remove the stress and uncertainty by preparing and serving the Notice Seeking Possession, ensuring that it is valid and will be accepted by the Court should you need to issue possession proceedings.

Enforcement of Judgments

Unfortunately, sometimes despite Court Orders being granted giving Landlords possession of their properties, Tenants do not leave the property by the date set.  When this happens, you will need to apply to the Court Bailiff for a Warrant of Possession.  Should you try to evict the Tenant without this, this will be an illegal eviction and they may claim against you for an injunction or financial compensation.  

I can prepare and submit the application for the Warrant to the Bailiff and liaise with them regarding the appointment for eviction, return of keys and securing of the property.  

Similarly, if you secure a money judgment for rent arrears or damage done to the property and the Tenant does not pay the sum ordered by the Court, I can review, advise you on and take enforcement action to try to recover the money for you.
