Guidance Notes: Obtaining Possession of Residential Property

PROP.PP.01

These Guidance Notes: Obtaining Possession of Residential Property are designed to help Landlords navigate their way through the “Accelerated Procedure” for obtaining possession of a property let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST).

They cover service of a Section 21 Notice, applications to Court for a Possession Order and taking enforcement action if the Tenant does not vacate as ordered. The relevant documents in our Possession Proceedings folder are signposted.

These Guidance Notes have been reviewed and updated to take account of the changes to the rules on Section 21 Notices from 1 October 2015.
