Possession Proceedings

As a landlord, there are certain legal procedures that you must follow by law to gain repossession of your rented property. The exact process that will apply to you will vary and will depend directly on the type of tenancy agreement in place, but in most instances the landlord would be required to serve notice before repossessing the property through the court.

At Muldoon Britton, we have experienced and qualified tenancy and property solicitors who can provide correct, solid and sound legal advice on the legal side of repossession, the processes that you must go through and implications of not following procedure. So whether your tenants are not keeping up with rental payments, tenants are falling behind on council tax or other bills or the property is not being cared for in the correct manner, Muldoon Britton can help you to start legal proceedings to evict tenants and regain possession.
