Possession Order – Property

Else’s expert debt recovery solicitors have considerable experience when it comes dispute resolution and claims management.

When a tenant fails to pay their rent on time – or builds up arrears – landlords may wish to seek a property possession order.

Proceedings are slightly different depending on whether the property is residential or commercial.

In the case of a residential property there are relevant notices that need to be served on the tenant.

The law leans in favour of the tenant and even a minor technical mistake with procedure or paperwork can lead to the claim being struck out. When this happens the possession process has to begin again, which can delay the matter by months.

Possession proceedings for commercial properties can often be carried out without notice of the intent to repossess. However, it is essential that the correct procedure is followed.

How we can help

Our debt recovery specialists know how vital it is that a landlord takes quality, professional legal advice before attempting to take possession of a property.

We are experts in dealing with this very technical area of law, so we can guide you through the possession order process ensuring it goes as smoothly as possible.

We will make you aware of all the relevant notices that are required to be served on residential tenants and the length of time each stage may take.

We also advise tenants of commercial premises and support them on their rights of occupation.

If you would like to speak to one of our debt recovery team members about commercial or residential possession proceedings contact us on 01283 526200. Alternatively, you can email info@elselaw.co.uk and we will get in touch at a time that suits you.
