Make a claim to evict your tenants using the accelerated possession procedure if they’re on an assured shorthold tenancy.
You’ll need to:
- complete the form online
- print out the form and sign it
- post your form and tenancy agreement to the court
- pay £355
This service is only available in England and Wales.
You can only use this service if you’ve told your tenants to move out in writing with at least 2 months’ notice (section 21 of the Housing Act).
If you took a money deposit for a tenancy starting after April 2007 you must have put it in a deposit protection scheme.
You can still evict tenants if you didn’t take a deposit.
You can ask the judge to make your tenant pay the cost of the court claim.
You can also print out and fill in the accelerated possession form.
