Serve the right notice

This is the most important part of it all. If you get this right, the claim that follows is most likely to be successful. What you want and how quickly influences which notice we serve. Also, when the tenancy started, whether you want to include a money claim, and your tenant’s assets are all factors relevant to this decision. Your tenant may move out after the notice expires. If they don’t, you must issue proceedings to obtain possession lawfully - don’t expose yourself to a claim for unlawful eviction. Diarise the date when the notice expires so that the claim is issued immediately if your tenant has not vacated. We will remind you and can issue the claim straight away.
