If you are a landlord, do you know how to evict a tenant? It is not enough to simply serve eviction notices on a tenant in order to repossess a property. Before a landlord can recover possession (evict a tenant), they must obtain a court order to eject the tenant. Our free legal guide looks at the steps which must be followed when raising an action on your behalf together with an estimate of the costs involved.
Our guide covers:
- Stage One – the application to court
- Stage Two – service on the tenant (serving a court summons on the tenant)
- Stage Three – the hearing at court
- Costs for stage one to three
- Stage Four – the eviction
- Estimated costs for stage four including Sheriff Officers fees
