A case study on working with landlords to evict a tenant who was waiting to be rehoused by the Council

My clients, Mr and Mrs A, were Landlords to a single property. They wished to have possession of their property but their Tenant refused to leave. The Tenant wished to be rehoused by the local authority and therefore needed to be formally evicted. On the basis of the Tenancy and the documentation my clients had with their Tenant, I advised them on their options, served the relevant notices and issued court proceedings for possession once the notices had expired. The tenant did not leave in accordance with the court order and therefore we had to instruct the bailiff to evict the tenant. The tenant eventually vacated the property on the date of the bailiff eviction. Unfortunately for Landlords, those tenants seeking Council re-housing will be informed by the Council to not leave the property until they have a Bailiff notice.
