Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 2 weeks ago 69
I am based in Scotland so I know the rules are a bit different, however here’s the story…
Tenants turn up look lovey ,nice respectable, however within a month or so all hell breaks lose…..so lawyer issues a notice to quit and a s33 on the tenants, now both became active at the same time the lease expired, and I thought that sheriff officers would enforce eviction immediately at that point.
However, I’m now being told we need to go to court to enforce the notice to quit and s33 and that will take around another 2 months. Is this right, once the NTQ and s33 come into force you still need to go back to court to get the courts permission to actually enforce them…
and the estimated cost for all this is around £450.
