Preparation of Tenancy Agreement
Having your tenancy agreement in order is essential to avoid any issues when trying to get your property back from a tenant.
Our fixed fee for drawing up a tenancy agreement is £150 plus VAT and includes:
Service of Notice
Before any claim for possession will be entertained by the Courts, an appropriate Notice Seeking Possession must have been served. This Notice can take a number of formats, however, the most common are the “Section 21 Notice” and the “Section 8 Notice”.
Both of the above appear to be simple documents, but in some cases a small mistake can result in your claim for possession being dismissed by the Court – a costly and frustrating experience. We can help to prevent this.
Our fixed-fee service is £125 plus VAT & Disbursements and includes:
If you wish to serve the Notice yourself, we can forward the completed version to you or, for an extra cost, we can often arrange delivery by a process server.
This is the aspect of recovering possession that landlords fear the most. However, when done properly, a Court claim for possession is often a simple and relatively pain-free process which leaves troublesome tenants with no room for manoeuvre.
Many landlords find the prospect of going to Court daunting. Others find it an inconvenience. Either way, Harding Evans can help. We offer two main packages depending upon whether your Claim requires a Court hearing or not:
Our fixed fee includes our costs in preparing your Claim, filing it at Court and liaising with the Court and any third parties as necessary.
If this is the case, we will take care of your possession proceedings from start to finish. Our fixed fee includes taking your instructions and advising you as to the best course of action to take, preparing the Claim Form and any associated documents, assembling any other evidence which the Court may require and arranging representation at the hearing on your behalf.
In our experience, it is unusual for tenants to stay in a property for a long time after an Order for Possession has been granted. However, if your tenant is particularly stubborn, our eviction service can help you to take the final step to recovering possession of your property.
Our fixed fee for arranging an eviction is £210 plus VAT & Disbursements. This includes our costs in applying for a Warrant for Eviction and liaising with the Court bailiff in order to arrange a suitable date and time for the eviction to take place.
