Possession Proceedings

possession proceedings

Regardless of how carefully a letting agent vets a tenant before a tenancy, chances are that at sometime during their career there will be a need to commence possession proceedings. This could be because the tenant has defaulted on their rent/other terms of the tenancy or where the Tenant refuses to vacate when the tenancy expires.

The Leasehold Enfranchisement team at JPC Law have developed a fixed price assured shorthold tenancy (AST) case management system allowing progression of AST claims quickly, efficiently and economically.

The process has 4 stages for obtaining possession the process offer transparency in relation to the costs which may be incurred.
