Residential tenant eviction
As a landlord, getting the right legal advice to solve a tenancy issue should be quick, easy and cost-effective.
- As a landlord, at some point you may face a problem with a tenant, such as a failure to pay rent or to comply with the terms of their tenancy agreement.
- If you need to regain possession of the property or enforce a breach of the tenancy agreement, it is vital to follow the correct legal process.
What is residential tenant eviction?
Residential tenant eviction is the legal process of removing a tenant from a rental property due to non-payment of rent, lease violations, or other breaches of the rental agreement. It involves filing a lawsuit, serving notice to the tenant, and attending a court hearing to obtain an eviction order.
How Moore Barlow can help
Renting your property and benefiting from a regular income should be straightforward. However, should your tenants fail to pay rent or breach other terms of their tenancy agreement, you can encounter problems.
If this happens, you may need to regain possession of your property or take steps to enforce the terms of the tenancy agreement that relate to any breach.
Alternatively, the tenancy agreement may not have been breached and you may simply want to regain possession of your property; for example, if you want to move into that property.
Whatever the situation, you will need to follow the correct process. If you don’t, you may not be able to obtain possession of your property and you risk facing criminal or civil action. We can guide you through the correct process to lawfully obtain possession of your property.
