Tenant in Rent Arrears?
Wanting to use Section 8?
We Get it Right First Time - Fixed Fees from just £47...
If your tenant is in rent arrears then your investment is not making the return it should. You need to capitalise on your investment and with the big changes to section 21, section 8 may well be your best route despite its obvious pitfalls. We understand those pitfalls and can readily assist you.
OUR NOTICE IS PROPERLY AND COMPLIANTLY DRAFTED ON OUR LAWYER'S FULL LETTERHEADED PAPER FOR FULL IMPACT. We draft either a s21 or a section 8 notice - or may advise you to have BOTH in order to protect your position fully.
WARNING: Whilst section 8 has many advantages, in particular that you only need to give 14 days notice, the reality is that there are many underlying pitfalls. Our panel lawyer, once instructed by you, will undertake a full audit of your situation in order to determine which is the best way forward for you. This aspect is free of charge.
It goes without saying that if your section 8 notice to quit is not drafted correctly, it will inevitably lead to your claim being kicked out leading to further delay and loss of profit for you. And, of course, additional stress. Be under no illusions: courts are ever vigilant in relation to the smallest of errors and are keen to pick up on these in favour of your tenant.
Many tenants leave at this stage in our experience if the notice is drafted correctly. However, even if they don't, it is even more essential to have the notice drafted correctly as the court procedure which follows stands or falls based on the validity of your notice.
Call or email us today for further information. Only if the tenants do not leave having received a valid notice do we move on to later stages of the eviction process.
WARNING: PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE A TENANT YOURSELF. THIS IS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE. WE ARE EXPERTS AND WE UNDERSTAND THE COURT PROCEDURE FROM BEGINNING TO END. LEAVE IT TO US.
Optional Pre-notice Stage Letter
If your tenant has not being paying their rent and you simply want to encourage them into doing so whilst making it very clear that this will not be tolerated then our expert lawyer-drafted letter on law firm letterhead notifying your tenant that they must comply with their duties and obligations under their assured shorthold tenancy agreement (i.e. pay the rent!) might just be the right decision for you, meaning that you could keep an otherwise good and reliable tenant whilst saving the cost of the further eviction process steps. It may avoid the more formal nature of using the section 8 notice to quit or section 21 notice.
HINT: THIS STEP CAN BE OF BENEFIT, BUT ONLY IN SITUATIONS WEHREBY THE TENANT HAS BEEN OUT OF CHARACTER IN BEING UNRELIABLE WITH RENT ARREARS. IN SHORT, THIS IS NOT DESIGNED FOR TENANTS WHO HAVE A HISTORY OF PERSISTENTLY AVOIDING PAYING YOUR RENT ALTOGETHER.
