Call for a faster evic­tion process

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

A SWIFTER and more stream­lined evic­tion process in the buy to let sec­tor would en­cour­age more land­lords to en­ter the mar­ket and pro­vide a greater choice of prop­er­ties for re­li­able ten­ants, says Land­lord As­sist.

The ten­ant evic­tion and rent re­cov­ery agent is back­ing calls for fast-track evic­tions amid spec­u­la­tions that the Govern­ment is plan­ning to put mea­sures in place to speed up the evic­tion process for pri­vate land­lords fol­low­ing con­cerns that pres­sures on the courts are leading to lengthy de­lays.

For many land­lords launch­ing evic­tion pro­ceed­ings against trou­ble­some ten­ants can re­sult in them go­ing months with­out re­ceiv­ing any rent.
