List Of Professional Tenant Eviction Services 2024

Professional Tenant Eviction Services

Dealing with dead-beat, unscrupulous tenants is the worst aspect of being a landlord. I’ve been there, it’s absolutely gut-wrenching at times. There’s nothing I can do or say to relieve you from the pain, but I can say is that the frustration and fear is normal, and the situation WILL get resolved if you follow the correct procedures.

When dealing with problematic (and often pure evil) tenants and evictions, each landlord needs to decide whether they want to:

  • Take matters into their own grubby little mitts (and yes, they can and do have successful outcomes), or;
  • use a professional tenant eviction service to help manage the entire process.

What kind of landlord do you want to be? Let’s look into it…

I’ve been mere whiskers away from stampeding into my BTL rental property and throwing my tenant and all her belongings onto the street after she fell several months into rent arrears, and continually fed me a slew of lousy excuses. Perhaps you’re reading this because you’re going through the same traumatic dilemma.

In retrospect, it’s a miracle that she didn’t end up limping around with my foot firmly wedged up her ass. Alas, she will never appreciate the amount of restraint I showed *deep breathes* While I don’t condone illegal and aggressive tactics to evict rogue tenants, I can fully understand why some landlords have taken matters into their own hands, even though it often results in further delays and expenses, especially when dealing with tenants that are willing to stand their ground.

The wrong & right way to evict tenants

Unfortunately, there is a wrong way of evicting rogue tenants, and it’s a trap many landlords fall into. It’s a pretty sad state of affairs in some cases actually, because we live in a society whereby the law often protects the guilty and prosecutes the victims because they took a wrong turn out of desperation. No, it’s not fair.

Of course, I’m not completely oblivious to the fact that some landlords, despite being the victim to start with, completely go off the rails and deserve to have the script flipped on them.

“My tenant is late on rent, so I’m going to march into the property and kick him out”

While I understand how landlords get to that point, it’s not how the whole thing works, and I definitely wouldn’t give credence to that logic, unless they’re willing to accept that it could all go horribly wrong.

In short, tenants continue to have rights even when they cross over to the dark side, which is critical to understand, and why the proper procedures should be followed.

Common reasons for evicting tenants

From my experience, these are the most common reasons for eviction…

By no means is that an exhaustive list, but I’d say they’re the reasons I hear the most often.

Starting the Eviction process…

Eviction should always be the last resort; communication and compromising usually always works out better.

Before engaging in combat, I always myself, “do I really need to go down this path?” If there’s an alternative solution, it’s always worth exploring.

But obviously life isn’t always peaches and cream, and evictions can often be the most practical and sensible solutions for landlords, unfortunately.

In many cases, it is relatively straightforward to ‘start the process’ of eviction, ’cause all it takes is an eviction notice. In reality, that’s usually enough to scare tenants into submission. So there’s no need to call in the professionals. However, failing that, things can start to get tedious and complicated. You can read more about the process of how you can evict a tenant here.

List of Professional Tenant Eviction Services

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

Only use regulated and qualified eviction services

Word of warning, there are unregulated and unqualified eviction services polluting the space, resulting in huge errors and costs for their clients (landlords), so it’s critical to use a reputable and qualified solution.

The services I have listed are all regulated, and have been providing eviction services for many years.

Should you use an eviction service? When to seek professional help…

The top reasons to use a Professional Eviction Service, in my opinion:

  • When you want the quickest resolution (which often results in the cheapest solution)
  • When you’re dealing with a particularly complex case
  • When you have no idea or confidence in doing it yourself
  • When you just can’t be arsed to deal with the hassle or emotional stress

Before jogging on, I do want to share an experience that highlights how effective an eviction service can be…

A couple of years ago I served a tenant with a Section 8 eviction notice because he fell into arrears (it’s not the same case I mentioned earlier). After serving the notice, I was hoping he would 1) pay his arrears 2) vacate the premises sharpish.

But in all honesty, he had caused me so much grief that I would have been over the moon if just vacated, recovering the arrears would have been a bonus! That’s the point many landlords reach when dealing with emotionally draining tenants; it often becomes less about the money, and more about restoring our sanity.

Painstakingly, he ignored the eviction notice and continued living rent-free. As you can imagine, I was not only pissed beyond belief, but my anxiety levels were also rocketing to the moon.

So I then decided to seek the help of an eviction service. They advised me to use their ‘eviction notice service’, which entails re-issuing the eviction notice.

I know what you’re thinking, I thought the same. Why repeat the same step?

They advised me that tenants tend to take eviction notices from professional eviction services a lot more seriously, because it signals the fact that the landlord is getting legal assistance.

Long story short, a branded eviction notice served by a Professional Eviction Service did the trick. The tenant soon packed up his crap and rolled out.

So, the point is, the message can be a lot more powerful and effective when it comes from a professional.

Make of that what you will.

Advantages of using a Professional Eviction Service

  • They specialise in the eviction process and understand the relevant laws and regulations, allowing them to navigate through the process as quickly as possible. They have streamlined processes in place to help expedite the eviction.
  • Their expertise can help you follow the proper steps and avoid costly mistakes. Improper eviction procedures can lead to legal complications and potential liabilities. Professional eviction services take necessary precautions to protect your rights as a landlord. They ensure that all eviction actions are conducted in compliance with applicable laws, minimising the risk of legal disputes or counterclaims from tenants.
  • Evicting tenants can be emotionally challenging, so by using an eviction service, you can distance yourself from the process, which can help reduced stress and emotional involvement.
  • Rogue tenants are often more compliant when a professional legal service gets involved.

It’s often cheaper to use a Professional Eviction Service

If you feel out of your depth and/or lack experience, my advice is to seek professional help from a service that actually specialises in evictions. But this advice is often avoided, and understandably so, because many landlords are fearful of the associated costs, which is why they lone-wolf it.

Many landlords try to navigate their way around the eviction process on their own and then end up shooting themselves in the foot because they took a wrong turn somewhere along the way, consequently delaying the entire process, which usually results in further losses.

For example, if you make a mistake with your paperwork, and your case goes to court, the Judge is likely to kick your case out, which means you would have wasted potentially several months while waiting to get to your court hearing. It’s likely you’ll have to wait another several months before you can get another court hearing. I’ve seen it happen so many times.

Yes, in many cases, tenants vacate once they receive notice (invalid or otherwise) so no one actually realises an invalid notice has been served, but the risks of serving an invalid notice is a risk not worth taking, in my opinion.

Good luck!

Whichever route you decide to take, whether you decide to ‘lone wolf’ it or seek professional assistance, good luck. I know how difficult and frustrating these situations can be, but rest assured, it will end and better times will return!

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!

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......?

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.

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 AND 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.

AT LAST a site where we can "tell it like it is" and not mince our words. I have two abusive assholes in my place £2200 arrears, a solicitor proving to be useless, the courts half asleep (can't disturb the beeks siesta!) and a council that hammers me for full tax even when empty! Another a/hole disappeared owing £2700 energy bill! It's my belief that councils enrole private l/lords so they don't have to "build and maintain" their own properties plus the government turns a blind eye to it all to prevent anarchy on our streets !

Hi Pete,

I feel your pain! Been there. It's so frustrating because there's literally nothing you can do but wait for slow moving assholes to get off their asses and allow justice to prevail.

Any self-developing ideas to resolve the problem that makes any sense are usually illegal!

Are you using a general solicitor or one that specialises in evictions? Solicitors aren't often the best route, I always recommend using a specialist eviction service i.e. like the ones listed in this post.

Out of curiosity, which council? The legislation regarding council tax exception has recently changed, albeit most councils at least give a discount or a grace period.

I am new landlord and renting for last 6 months....and already my tenant have destroyed good house especially - bathroom, condensation in the window/ house - by only doing twice a day heating in winter - putting up temperature at 20 degree (according to them this 3 bed house is too expensive to heat compare to last 2 bed flat or the bigger property- uneducated - They should have thought that before going )

When you go in the house no curtain open, leave in dark just with TV light or deem light.
Not keeping the vent open or switching fan in bathroom, drying the clothes in the house without ventilations, putting wet towels on the radiator, not opening curtain, steaming in kitchen and not opening window + back door+ covering corner vent saying draft is coming. (Observation -but when I try to make them understand by giving printed information on condensation - then the excuses & declining- even after pointing at towel on the radiator)

First time today, after all this I started searching and tumbled across your website…LOVED it…good advice, found 100% truth after personal experience…But I am surprised how they are getting away with it …and why we as a Landlords letting this happen to us…If we don’t pay council tax then council straight away threatens us with red letter then why we have very less rights getting our rightfully owned money.

WHY we as a landlord have to put up this from …so called expert tenant who knows how to play with system and leave us to deal with their debts and move on to other landlord…SCAMER

WHY these kinds of tenant have upper hand… and make full of the system… and gets away laughing?

WHY the landlord association can’t fights for tougher rules so these people goes in black list and do not operates same scam again & again…..

WHY company like DPS + court + landlord association can’t track those people down as they will be getting similar incident reports to them over & over….. I know they have to support Tenant under data act but same time there must be a way to set up a tracking system like police have to identify this fraud tenants where landlord can search their past records/ disputes ground such as rent errors or damaging property purposely through deposit scheme organisation. ( Is there something like this please correct me if there is)

We all work hard for our good life and invest money for good return but the lack of legal system support makes us bagger in front of this cheater - who you providing roof over their head by giving your good furbished property....WHY.....WHY.....

Where can we get tenant advice on landlord issuing Section 21 Notice to Quit?

All sites appear to be for landlords (BAD ONES INCLUDED!!!) but no help for tenants who have been sent this Notice because they refuse to sign a new tenancy agreement to raise the rent by £250 per month when the current rental market dictates otherwise in a particular area.

The Landlord 22nd January, 2016 @ 22:26

A landlord doesn't need a reason to serve a Section 21 notice (even if it is on the basis of you not agreeing to the new unfair rate)...

In any case, the blog post on rent increases might be useful.

Good luck (your landlord seems unreasonable)!

I had all sorts of excuses from one of my tenants to the point of serving a section 21 and go through the process. I got told about the Eviction Organization and things changed almost within the week.

I got in touch with them online and they took the matter in hand. I had my property back with vacant possession the following Saturday. No courts and no lengthy process. I couldn't believe it at first they just moved so fast to bring it to an end.

There are people out there that can help and put you wise as to what to do next when you've had enough.

Feeling like selling up completely. Has anyone else had bad experiences like this how do you come back from it? Seems like the law is all for the tenant even if they are complete twats??

Pending situation, had couple with 5 kids all under 16. Been privately renting with me last 2 years no arrears.
I am now told husband has left her and she is applying for housing benefit.
She tells me council require to have tenancy changed to her as sole occupier before they help her.
The existing tenancy expires in 2mths.
She has told me as she is non earner she cannot afford the rent and will go into arrears unless i agree to tenancy change to sole.
Concern is if she starts defaulting and by changing to sole the husband is not liable anymore and i will not be able to evict as 5 kids involved.
If i allow sole tenancy she will go on benefits then all my rent insurance becomes invalid.
Any advice on what to do appreciated with possible pitfalls envisaged.

As a new private landlord I was unaware that prospective tenants needed to have the how to rent guide and EPC, they've been in just short of 2 years and have been a pain from day one!! From bitting and bobbing payments to now not paying, we have a mortgage on it and also a mortgage on the property we reside in and cannot afford to keep paying 2 house's out, so enough was enough and hoped the quickest and easiest way to get them out was a section 21 6a, but we've only just given them the guide and EPC, how long do we have to wait now before doing it as I read it won't be valid to use as they didn't get it at the start of tenancy?

My tenant stopped paying rent. I have already served s21. In the process of issuing s8. I think it makes more sense to talk to him and offer waiving the rent for 2 months if he agrees to vacate the flat at the end of the tenancy in 2 months. The tenant is not communicative. Can anyone advise me what is the best way to put it to him and at what stage now or later ?
