Tenant not leaving after eviction notice?

Tenant not leaving after eviction notice?

Hi all, I am wondering if someone can help me regarding an eviction notice being served to a tenant.

My mortgage rate now leaves me £1,000 out of pocket each month after rent so I am forced to sell my property.

Speaking with my letting agent, the country court sheriffs can take up to 12 months in the borough to evict a tenant – this would totally ruin me and force me to sell my residential property.

Is there any advice on how I can speed this up as I am borrowing money to pay the mortgage and this so not sustainable.

Thank you,

So sorry Mel for your current situation.
Yes, you have no choice but to carry on with the legal route but I have used the already mentioned bribe thing in the past. I would offer them 3k with a months notice, then take 1k per month off until nothing left.
Yes, 3k is a lot of money but much less than the extended court stuff.
Try and put this offer to the tenants while accompanied by a Rugby player or hire a big doorman for half a day.
All the best.
