Our Guide To Tenant Evictions For Landlords And Property Managers

Managing or owning a rented property requires great patience and hard work, but it can pay off when you get the return on investment you expect.

While many property management tasks can be enjoyable, one that isn’t is evicting tenants. No one enjoys telling someone that they have to find a new home, but it is sometimes a necessary part of being a landlord or property manager.

Here is our guide to managing tenant evictions and making sure that you offer your tenants the support and help they need during this difficult time.

Submit The Right Eviction Notice

Depending on the type of tenancy agreement your tenant has with you, you have different options for evicting your tenants. So, you need to make sure that you understand what type of eviction notice is best, then that you get it written up correctly. Making sure that this step is correct in every particular is vital if you want to ensure that you don’t come across any issues later in the process.

Communicate With Your Tenants

When you evict your tenants, you need to provide them with reasonable notice to vacate the property. So, where possible, try to communicate with them both in writing and in person so that they can understand what’s going on and are as cooperative as possible. This approach will help if you want to maintain a relationship with your tenants and simply need the property for another use. If your tenants are hostile, then you need to make sure that you are clear and concise in your communications and that you have witnesses and evidence to back up any claims you make.

Get Legal Support

If you’re struggling with tenants who aren’t following the rules, or you need to evict them for any reason, then it’s crucial that you take the proper legal steps. Many tenants who are unhappy about being evicted might claim that your eviction is illegal, so you need to make sure you take the proper steps to counter this claim and ensure that you do everything right. That means choosing a solicitor with experience in managing tenant evictions and dealing with illegal eviction claims. Clifford Johnston & Co is a team of solicitors in Stockport with extensive experience in the realm of tenant evictions and claims of illegal evictions, so they can help you to manage the situation and ensure that your tenants understand their rights and yours.

Be Kind And Supportive

It’s not always easy to be kind and supportive to tenants, particularly those who aren’t following the rules. However, you should always do everything within your power to give them the support they need. This approach will stand you in good stead if you need to take them to court or if your tenants are following the rules and you want to keep up a good relationship with them. So, where possible, try to be supportive and kind to every tenant, particularly when you have to ask them to leave your property.

The process of evicting a tenant from your property can be a long and stressful one, but if you follow these tips and work to be as professional as possible, then you should come up against fewer obstacles. Use this guide to get an idea of how to begin the process and get things moving.
