Landlord and Tenant – Expired Tenancy

Our client, a private individual, had been a landlord renting out his former home under an assured shorthold tenancy agreement.

At the expiry of the tenancy, needing to move back into his property due to impending financial difficulties, our client sought to take possession through the ‘section 21’ procedure. The client was however fearful that the tenant would be very obstructive, as rent arrears had also accrued.

We advised the client on all aspects of taking possession, from serving the termination notice upon the tenant through to preparation of and representation at a final hearing which was found in the client’s favour, including gathering evidence to prove that the tenant had been untruthful about claiming never to have received the notice.
