At Monarch Solicitors our expert litigation solicitors can provide a comprehensive service for landlords in relation to evicting tenants.
- It is a legal requirement for landlords to give the tenant a proper notice if you want them to leave. Normally, the landlord must allow any fixed period of the tenancy to have expired, and they must have given at least two months’ notice.
- The tenancy agreement should say how much notice must the tenant give the landlord if they want to leave the property – one month’s notice is typical.
If you are a landlord and are in dispute with rent payments or tenant negligence or a tenant breaching the contract, then you may have a case for a tenant eviction. Our litigation solicitors can help you on each step of a tenant eviction process in order to conduct a smooth and effortless outcome.

It is both a criminal and civil offence for the tenant to re-enter the property once the lease has been forfeited by the landlord. The tenant should be provided with an opportunity to access the property under the supervision of the landlord and/or the landlord’s agent in order for the tenant to remove their possessions.
Rather than evict your commercial tenant and lose your tenant completely, you could use our Debt Recovery Service to recover the rent arrears.
The tenant does have a legal right to apply to the court to claim what is known as ‘relief from forfeiture’ anytime up to 6 months from the date of the forfeiture. In order to be successful with that application, the tenant will need to make an application to the Court, pay a court fee and pay all the rent arrears and the landlord’s costs for exercising forfeiture. In the event that relief from forfeiture is granted by the Court, the effect is as if the lease had never been forfeited and the lease will continue. Where the rent arrears are paid but the tenant does not make an application to the court claiming relief from forfeiture you can consider offering and documenting a new lease
