There sometimes comes a stage in a landlord / tenant relationship, where the landlord requires the property back. A landlord will usually want to repossess a property for one of two reasons. Firstly, that there has been a change in the landlord’s circumstances. For example, you require the property to live in yourself. Or secondly, a landlord may seek to evict their tenant because relations with them have broken down. This could be because the tenant has failed to pay rent, has caused the property to fall into disrepair or has breached other terms of the tenancy agreement, for example.
Residential possession proceedings
The procedure for seeking possession of a property from a tenant is technical and usually requires a court order. Specific notices must be served, and timescales observed. If you do not follow the correct procedure, the Court may not allow you to repossess your property.
If you are looking to repossess your rented property, we suggest you speak to specialist solicitors as early as possible.
Whatever your reason for wanting your property back (whether as a result of the tenant’s non-payment of rent arrears, disrepair at the property or anti-social behaviour, or indeed because your circumstances have changed), we can assist. Advising on the options for notices (i.e. s21 or s8) and possession proceedings (whether accelerated or not).

What Our Clients Say
Mr M, Leeds
"Worth every penny. Totally delighted with the outcome of my protracted conflict with a problem Tenant. A huge thank you to Connor and Ed in achieving such a small time frame through the labyrinthine judicial paper trail associated with evictions which had previously had me frustrated beyond belief. Cheers guys."
Mr S, Leeds
"The rebuilding of my house went horribly wrong with the main contractor going into liquidation and subsequently a number of defects coming to light. Thanks to Ed I have managed to recover almost half of the cost of the build from the architect who was managing the build - considerably more than I originally expected. I would highly recommend Ed particularly for his grasp of detail in a case involving hundreds of emails, photographs and pages of experts reports."
Mr B, Leeds
"What great service Ed provided me with, the end result was what I wanted. Cheers again."
Mr M, Leeds

Mr P, Wakefield
"Absolutely delighted with the outcome at court! A massive thank you to Ed Smith and his team for his hard work, professionalism and attention to detail. Highly recommend!"
