Recovering properties from tenants

Easy as A-B-C


A – Serve Notices

B – Issue Claim

C – Bailiffs

Stage I – Investigation  – Now only £290

Initial Investigation to review and check your documents to see if a possession claim would be successful.

We email you a list of documents that we need to see, such as tenancy agreements and deposit certificates. You attach them to an email and send them to us as separate PDF documents.

LegalMentor then helps you make a strategic decision about how to proceed, emailing you our reasoning, and often discussing your options on the phone.

If legal proceedings are already underway, the type of tenancy is unclear, or the case is complex, the investigation fee is £440, but for allegations of disrepair, or the case is very complex, the investigation costs £580.

Stage A – Serve Notices – £110 (£130 for two notices served at the same time)

Drafting, checking and serving statutory notices on the tenant. This includes section 21 Notices, section 8 Notices and Notices to Quit.

Stage B – Issue eviction proceedings (PCOL) – £710 (you will also pay a court fee of £391)

LegalMentor will help you correctly plead, sign, issue and pay for your claim online.

Before the claim is issued, we will also discuss and finalise an initial standard template wording in a draft witness statement, ready for you to file at court and serve on your tenants.

LegalMentor will arranges for a specialist court advocate, instructed by solicitors, or a direct access barrister, to attend the court hearing to represent you.

All of the above is included in the fee.

You can recover possession of your property, get a county court judgment for rent arrears, interest, daily use and occupation charges, set off the deposit against rent arrears, some costs and (if appropriate) a transfer to the High Court for enforcement.

Stage B1 – Issue proceedings (Accelerated Possession) – £620 (you will also pay a court fee of £391)

LegalMentor helps you regain possession of your property using the accelerated procedure, which usually has no court hearing.

We will discuss and finalise an initial standard template wording for your claim, and print out copies of the claim and attachments ready for you to file at court.

You cannot recover any rent arrears or costs (except the £355 court fee), using this claim.

Stage C – County Court Bailiffs –  £230 (+ £143 court fee) = £373

Stage CH – High Court Bailiffs – Price on request

Helping you to transfer your claim to the High Court.  Please email or call us for pricing.
