What is tenant eviction? Which eviction notices can you serve?
There is a set procedure for evicting a tenant from your property if they have violated the terms of your tenancy agreement or committed certain other actions. The law sets out very clear procedures that a landlord has to follow in order to evict a tenant legally, and if you do not follow them you could suffer penalties for attempting to evict someone illegally or for harassment of a tenant. Your conduct could amount to an unlawful eviction.
What are the legal reasons for evicting a tenant?
There are actually quite a few, more than we could easily list here. But the most common legally acceptable reasons for evicting a tenant these days are:
Is there a specific eviction procedure?
Sometimes, yes. The procedures are designed to protect the tenant more than the landlord, and there is a very precise process you (or if at all possible, your lawyer) has to follow to evict someone effectively. If you are going to use a lawyer for your eviction, make sure they are a specialist eviction lawyer.
Just a few of these steps would be choosing the correct type of eviction notice to use (based on the property and tenancy types), giving the tenant written notice of your intention to evict them, applying to the courts for a possession order for the property. Of course, if the tenant really wants to fight the process, it can get a great deal more complicated than that.

The 3 step Eviction Guide
If you choose to instruct us as your lawyers in a tenant eviction procedure, we’ll learn all about you, your property and your tenant.
Once we understand the situation properly, we’ll typically take the following steps:
1) We’ll serve notice of your intent to evict.
Our eviction lawyers will give the tenant notice in writing that you are demanding that they leave the property and pay any outstanding or arrears rent within the prescribed legal timescales.
2) We’ll take the matter to court
If the problem tenant refuses to leave at stage 1 or fails to pay their arrears, we will make the initial filings with the courts to take matters further. Typically, this includes obtaining a court order for the eviction and payment of rent arrears.
3) If necessary, our lawyers will instruct bailiffs on your behalf.
If your tenant refuses to comply with the court orders in step 2, our lawyers will instruct bailiffs who can legally remove them by force. It may also be possible for the bailiffs to seize some or all of the tenant’s movable property, to offset the rent arrears owed. Just let our lawyers know if you need assistance with rental arrears recovery.
How long does an eviction take?
That all depends on the facts of your specific case. If they have broken the terms of their tenancy agreement with you, you may have to give them as little as two weeks’ notice to vacate, or as much as two months. It all depends on your agreement, and exactly which terms they have broken.
If the tenant has not broken any term of the tenancy agreement, but the agreement still allows an eviction, you will typically have to give at least two months notice. It also depends on the geographical location. We find that some London courts are busier than others.
