For private landlords we provide a specialist
service which includes an Assured Shorthold Tenant Eviction Scheme.
The service is based on the route you take to eviction and is determined by which section of the Housing Act you rely on when commencing proceedings against a tenant.
There are two options: section 21 and section 8. Broadly speaking you need to decide what is more important to you.
Is your priority obtaining possession of the premises quickly, with your
secondary concern being recovery of the outstanding rent? If so,
section 21 would be the more appropriate route to follow.
If your greater concern is to recover the rent arrears (or at least
to obtain judgment against the tenant in respect of the arrears), while
possession of the property is a secondary consideration, perhaps the
section 8 route would be the better.
In any case, we will talk through your options.
