Possession Claims

Hodge Jones & Allen is well known for helping both landlords and tenants with possession claims.

You may need to remove a tenant if they owe you rent or if they are engaging in anti-social behaviour. If you are a tenant or home owner and your landlord or mortgage provider intends to re-possess the property you live in, you will want to be clear about your legal rights to ensure you are being treated fairly and correctly.

Landlords

If you are a landlord, you may need to remove a tenant if they owe you unpaid rent or their behaviour means you can no-longer allow them to stay in your property. This might be anti-social behaviour or damage to your property.

In most cases you will need to obtain a Court order to re-possess your tenanted property. The process for evicting tenants is highly regulated so it is important you do not fall foul of the law. Even technicalities in the Court papers can 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, so you can minimise void periods and protect your property investment.

Mortgage Re-possessions

If your landlord or mortgage provider is taking action against you to re-possess the property you live in, you will want to understand the legal process involved and ensure it is carried out within the law. You may want to challenge a possession claim if you have been treated unfairly, or you might simply need more time to make the payments you owe.

Case Study

In exchange for the client doing repairs to the property, the landlord agreed to a fixed term whereby rent would not be increased. In contravention of this the landlord issued a s21 notice with the view to seeking possession of the property and also harassed the client with a view to making her move out voluntarily. After a 5 day trial in the court found in the client’s favour and she was awarded £18,000 damages for the harassment as well as her costs.
