List Of Tenant Eviction Services

In the past, I’ve been mere whiskers away from stampeding into one of my properties with the incentives of throwing a tenant and all her belongings onto the street because she had fallen into 3 months of arrears. Looking back, it was a miracle that she wasn’t limping around with my foot firmly wedged up her rancid arsehole. She will probably never appreciate how close to death, or at least, “baggy anal-passage” syndrome she was. The only nagging thought that prevented me from executing was the potential legal consequences of my actions. While I don’t condone illegal and aggressive tactics to evict rogue tenants, I can fully understand why landlords have taken matters into their own hands.

Unfortunately, there is a wrong way of operating when evicting tenants. Even when landlords THINK they’re taking the legal and right steps, they’re actually not. The problem is, landlord law is an extremely complex area, and each case generally varies depending on circumstances. That’s why it’s extremely imperative that landlords take the right steps when they’re dealing with rogue tenants.

If you’re a landlord that’s unsure about the process of eviction, my advice is to seek professional help from someone that actually specialises in the landlord law area. Taking the professional route may sound expensive, but it can actually work out to be the cheaper option because professionals know what they’re doing and they generally work fast. Many landlords try to tackle the eviction process themselves by serving a Section 8, but unknowingly serve an invalid notice, consequently delaying the entire process, which ultimately may result in more lost rent.

Here’s a list of Tenant eviction professionals

Just to clarify, I’ve not used the majority of these services, but they’re services I’m aware of and have been recommended. Each company offer various eviction services and vary in prices. Look through the list and see which company offers the most appropriate service for you.

Stage 2: Service of Notice(s) to tenant £95

Hey Landlord

I am beginning to understand now why there is something like a MILLION EMPTY HOUSES in the UK

I mean, for many property owners the risk of letting to tenants is just too much and the rewards too small. Leave it empty, fund the place out of capital and sit back and relax and wait for the market to turn up - as it always does.

Failing that, if you must rent the places out - look forward to big rent rises this year: no new houses built for 2 years, social housing in decline, owner occupancy in decline, all spells rising demand for rental props and rising yields - time to celebrate!

cheers

I had the tenant from hell in my property,paid rent irregularly for three months then stopped paying, I had a mortgage on the property, no money coming in so unable to pay anyone to help me, citizens advise do just that advise you to pay out money to evict them and go thro' the courts, or you cant do any thing at all, she finally done a runner owing £2000 and completly wrecked my house so badly loads of repairs had to be done and a new suite had to be burned,she had given me false references, I did my own investigation and found I was not the first person she had done this too, and since leaving my property she has gone on to con three more landlords, she ran up bills bought cars, TV, loans, it goes on and on and NO ONE can stop her she just moves on, and you cant broadcast her name and alias's because that would be wrong I just have to stand by and see her do it again, tenants seem to have all the rights....the police say she is only trying to put a roof over her head,I would like to put one on her head.

My boyfriend is in a similar situation, he rented his flat out for the third time to a family friend last year and in April this year the tenant stop paying rent, stating that he was having problems with getting the council to pay. This has gone on for months, and finaly after using the Section 21 (thank you Landlord, for your help), we issued them, but now he has gone to evict them to have them say that because the Section 21 is a download off a website it is not legal. The thing is, their tenancy agreement has expired and we still cant get them out of his flat, things stink as he is now going to have to try and get legal help whilst paying mortgage and the rent to keep a roof of our heads, any chance we can stop paying the mortgage and tell the mortgage company that we have squatters in there or do they have more rights than he does......?

We're going through hell, with a young proffessional who moved his girlfriend in, always late with payment, then stopped all together paying rent. Letting agent served section 21 and section 8. The day he should of moved out we recieved email, saying they had no were to go, cab had advised them for landlords to evict them then the council would find then a council property !!! oh and they're damaging the house also. Cab will not help us cause we're landlords with very little rights.

Hi the tenancy agreement expired about three years ago. So I can say they have been a sitting tenant However they owe about 9 months of rent and have refuse to leave the property when given three months notice.

I've just used Landlord Action and they were a very helpful and professional service. As well as getting the documents done very quickly they made sure I had met the DPS obligations and EPC etc so nothing would trip me up later in the process. They offered plenty of common sense advice and also encouraged me to consider solutions in the event that the tenant could meet their obligations. They also emailed the day of eviction to see if I needed their further support.
I did try another service on the list first and had a poor experience but that might have been a one off.
I would suggest a newbie landlord like myself uses a service the first few times as the paper work must be presented in a very specific way to meet legal standards. Landlord Action is worth a look.

I had rent a flat from a landlady and she ask me for references and I told her I don't have one and I don't earn a lot of money but I was happy that she looks beyond that and decided to let me her place instead. When I moved in, the place was well and truly decorated in the best possible way which was my taste. I paid my deposit and I lived in that place for almost 10 years and never missed a payment.

I took her by surprise because she had made a comment once to someone that I don't seems like the person she should let her place to, I am a very simple looking person but you never see my mind or my heart, I know what my responsibilities are and I kept that flat just the way I would some one to keep mine.

That place was my pride and joy, I kept that place in a prestige condition that the only thing that was change since I was there is a washer and a toilet tank which was there when I moved in. My rent is ALWAYS on time and we developed a relationship over the years.

It was such a calm and peaceful environment that I had created , it was a blessings to be in contact with her. I had eventually bought my own flat and eventually after 10 years we had fallen out and I was ask to move. When she handed me the notice she came back the next day to withdrew it but I felt so betrayed I told her I will be moving.

I moved on the very day I was given I clean the flat out and nothing was out of place apart from the wear and tear of the carpets, I even press her drapes and hang it back up, I left that place in such a prestige manner that someone could have moved in right away.

I could not dismantle someones property but then you have other people believe that you are responsible to put a roof over their head. You have to respect other people's propety and don't carry and grudge for it by not paying your rent when it's due.

If your rent is going to be late, you need to let the landlord knows about it so he or she can put things into place where their mortgage is concern, communication is very important so theirs no reason to avoid the landlord.I would want to treat someone the way I am expecting to be treated, but I wont denied the fact that you have some really bad and rouge landlords out there but am happy I never fall into their hands.

I have used both http://www.legal4landlords.com AND http://www.evictions-southeast.co.uk both for rent arrears (opposite ends of the country unfortunately). I am just glad that I don't have to waste time dealing with hearings and stupid tenant excuses for not paying. Actual defense to the one dealt with by Evictions South East was that the tenant had developed severe agoraphobia and had to stop working as they wouldn't let him take his dog to the office with him. Seriously.

Well to be a landlord you have to be on the ball all the time .do not slack on your late rent or inspections . yes there will always be ass holes how break the rules so you must break them to and play them at there own game’s. a friend of mine had tenants not paying rent
He knew a team of people how you pay to move in with there suff while there out and live with them. When police ring about these people. landlord tells them they moved in with the other tenants have records of them paying joint rent. It then becomes a civil case for your none paying tenant. They don’t like there own shit when other people eating there food costing them money and making life uncomfortable. Other things you have to put in place two cover your ass but that’s the basics. They lasted there weeks found some where else .

When you make a deal all the documents should be notorized and all the information varified. So where is the police? You can't obscure the identity without any consequences. And talking about other problems described here, when you are going to rent YOUR house to unknown person you should verify his documents 100 times! Ask him about his work, the ability to pay, everything you need and don't be shy! It's your property and the tenant should be a reliable person that can be trusted.

We have a tenant - without an agreement in place. He is a relative and we never imagined the problems we are now having. Having done everything to help him when he said he'd lost his job, he then just did not pay any rent whatsoever!
Having had enough of his behaviour we decided we want to sell the property and informed him. We then could not get any access at all and he cut us off from any communication with him.
A month ago we sent him a 'Notice to Quit' stating he had to leave the property by 26.4.2014. A week later we had a call from the police stating they had to break in to the property and were looking for him to arrest him for growing cannabis in our property. We were further horrified to learn that he had also tapped the electric meter to void the token meter service. The police said they changed the locks and we asked the police not to return the keys to him when they eventually found him. However, the police returned the keys to him without our permission. As far as we are aware he is on bail.
We have been told by the police that he now lives at a different address. He still will not return the keys. He now says he has 'lost' them.
The notice to quit expired on 25th April and he does not live at the property but we do not know how we can get access.
Can anyone advise us please?
We actually have a potential buyer for the property.

We have a bad tenant on our property who refuses to leave and her contract has already expired.

We approached Landlord Advice who took £783 to issue a section 8, and until now, nothing has been done.

Landlord Advice is a rip off, be aware and pass this message to any landlord in difficulties with their tenants. You would only get worst with Landlord Advice and would feel more depressed.
