Frequently Asked Questions

How can a landlord evict a commercial tenant?

If you’re letting a property to a commercial tenant who doesn’t leave when you ask, then in most cases you will need to obtain, and enforce, a court order.

The requirements for obtaining a Court Order will depend on the kind of tenancy. However, the process is highly regulated, and there are several technical pitfalls which could lead to the notice being invalid. Even minor errors in the paperwork may prevent a court from granting a possession order or lead to significant delays and costs.

Our team of property dispute solicitors are highly experienced in advising landlords on their rights and obligations, in order to minimise void periods and protect property investments.
