Planning for Christmas in October?
No we haven’t taken leave of our senses. If you really want vacant possession for January (and you need the current tenant out) now is your last chance before Christmas to make it happen. The courts are stuffed full. The usual Christmas Rush is already beginning. You must act before October 15 to have a decent chance of getting a hearing this year.
The overburdened court system is suffering the usual end-of-year delays. And the impact of the new welfare reforms is making hearing dates even later. If you really want vacant possession for the crucial New Year period, you need to act fast and you need to act right now! The next two weeks are critical. And of course your paperwork needs to be 100% accurate and checked to avoid delays and having to restart the whole process.
We have a fantastic advice line for landlords and letting agents and our in-house legal team will soon be able to put you back in control. We do want to wrap it all up for you – before Christmas.
