3 things before starting the eviction process.

1. Legal Grounds.

Before starting the eviction process, check that you have a legitimate reason for evicting your tenant. For example, are there rent arrears or is your tenant failing to comply with their obligations.

2. Proper Documentation.

Always keep an accurate record of all agreements, documents and communications with your tenant. This should include all rental agreements, all rental payments/arrears and all correspondence with your tenant (including emails, text/whatsapp messages etc).

3. Professional Guidance.

Eviction is a legal process that requires knowledge of the law and careful handling. To avoid potential legal pitfalls, it’s highly recommended to consult with a solicitor as soon as possible so that they can guide you through the process and ensure you are complying with the law.

Remember, eviction should be the last resort after all attempts to try and resolve issues have failed.
