Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities has updated its guide to Understanding the possession action process for private landlords in England and Wales: Click Here
This guide will help you to understand what rights and responsibilities you have as a landlord when you need to use the courts to take possession of your property.
This guidance is to help private landlords to understand their rights and responsibilities when they need to take possession of their property through the county court by explaining how the possession action process works. It will also help social landlords understand the new arrangements which will be in place when the stay on possessions ends.
It will assist tenants who have been served with a notice requiring or seeking possession and provides detailed information about each stage of the possession action process where the landlord makes a possession claim to the county court.
The guides also contain advice to help tenants and private landlords to resolve common disputes in tenancies, such as rent arrears and anti-social behaviour, without the matter needing to go to court.
