As the capital’s leading property law firm, the specialist team at Ackroyd Legal hold many years’ combined experience in landlord and tenant matters, and will work with you to achieve the desired outcome within the shortest possible time frame, with the added security of a fixed-fee arrangement so that there are no hidden costs to be borne further down the line.

Your fully-transparent quotation for fixed-fee rental possession will include all advice and legal services, including examining the tenancy agreement and establishing whether this has in fact been breached, for example by the tenant failing to pay rent. We will look at all of the facts and advise you on the strength of your case, based upon the circumstances.

If you do decide to proceed, we will then draft a Notice under Section 8 of the Housing Act 1988 seeking possession of the property; with a written explanation to be delivered to your tenant. If this is not complied with, we will prepare for and provide ongoing advice and support in preparing for and attending a Possession Hearing.

As a landlord, evicting your tenants will usually be a last resort, after other avenues have been well and truly exhausted. In most cases, it will be more cost-effective to try to resolve matters through negotiation, although this is not always successful. Nevertheless, we can provide advice and support at this stage of the proceedings in case eviction is not necessary.

Having to evict tenants from your property is not the most pleasant experience to endure, however we will be by your side every step of the way. We will fully assess your legal standpoint in order to advise you on the best way to proceed in all of the circumstances, so that you can be assured of your position and have confidence in the outcome.
