Eviction notices and what you need to know about them

Occasionally a landlord may need to evict their tenant. This may be because of several reasons such as lack of rent, disruptive behaviour or the landlord may simply need the property back for personal reasons. Landlords must follow a set procedure if they want to evict a tenant in their property and create a eviction notice document to provide to the tenant.

Eviction Notices

An eviction notice must be provided to the tenant and gives them with at least two months of time before they need to leave. If they are on a fixed-term tenancy then the notice cannot take effect until two months after the term period. The notice must contain certain details and failure to provide this information could result in the failure of your eviction and you will be required to reapply for the eviction process. An adequate eviction notice should contain the following information

Possession Order

If the tenant has not left the property by the date given on the eviction notice then the landlord can apply for a court possession order. After a court order has been created a judge will decide whether the tenant must leave the property or a court hearing may be held if the tenant raises an important issue or the necessary paperwork from the landlord is not in order. Hearings can result in orders of possession which states that the tenant must leave your property by a certain date, or money orders where your tenants will pay a set amount that will be taken out of the tenants wages.
