The risks associated with illegal eviction missed rent payments and possible damage to your property if tenant eviction is badly handled are significantly reduced by paying for professional advice or services.
More advice is available from our main sponsors Landlord Action who provide a variety of services in relation to evicting tenants and general advice on tenant eviction and recovery of debt. You could do everything yourself, but we do not recommend it as there are so many legal pitfalls especially in the current climate with new emergency legislation coming from the government with very little prior notice.

Latest COVID-19 update from Landlord Action:
We are sorry to say that the Government has announced the suspension on possession claims is to be extended further to the 20 September 2020 and that new notices served will have to give six months’ notice to the tenant except in very serious cases involving anti-social behaviour and domestic violence (we await further details regarding this).
We are unclear if the reactivation notice (rent arrears case or Section 21 case) process will still be in place for 20 September and information Landlords/Agents have already provided, will most likely need to be updated near the time.
Parties should take reasonable steps to resolve their dispute before coming to court and Landlord Action anticipate that the courts will prioritise these cases. To stand the best chance of having your case considered as soon as possible, we believe that using the PRS mediation service to seek an agreement with the tenant is a great way to resolve the matter amicably or set your case apart. The process is quick and simple, led by a resolution specialist and the sole focus of helping tenant and landlord reach a reasonable agreement.
