Evicting a tenant with an AST
When you go to court and file to evict your tenant, make sure all your documents are in order, because you will then be able to use what is called an 'accelerated possession' procedure which is where you can get a court hearing within a six week period. Assuming you get an order for possession, the court is usually going to delay the possession for a further month. You are then in a position to apply for an eviction date with the bailiffs after about a month. The bailiffs will then arrange a time with the tenants which would generally be within a few weeks.
If the courts are busy, then it is going to be highly unlikely to obtain a possession for possibly three to five months especially if the tenant is unwilling to vacate.
There unfortunately is only one cast iron guarantee that a tenant vacates the premises and that is when they have actually moved out. A high percentage of landlords constantly find themselves with a pleasant tenant who then unfortunately then becomes a tenant from hell when they find out that the house is being sold.
