Standard Actions (Step 2)

Section 21 Notice Accelerated Procedure:£350.00 INC VAT

Accelerated possession is not fault based. It therefore does not require the tenant to be in breach of any of the terms of a tenancy for a landlord to issue a section 21 Notice. It is known as accelerated possession because the procedure is designed not to require a court hearing and therefore in theory it should be quicker. However, landlords should note that the process is by no means immediate. It will typically take several weeks or months, depending on whether there is a back log of cases at the specific court being used. The landlord can use the accelerated procedure when: it is an AST, the only purpose of the claim is to obtain possession, original tenancy is in writing and s21 Notice has been given

Section 8 Notice Procedure: £350.00 INC VAT

This all-inclusive fixed fee covers checking the notice issued, case preparation, the solicitor fee, court fee and barrister fee where needed.

Section 21 Non-Accelerated Procedure: £750.00 INC VAT

The standard section 21 Accelerated Procedure cannot be used if your matter doesn’t comply with the rules. For example there has been a change of landlord, the agreement is missing or it has been an oral tenancy. The matter will then require a hearing with more preparation from the solicitor and a barrister appearance.

Statement of Costs: £96.00 INC VAT

When the court orders a tenant to pay landlord’s costs then the costs are likely to be fixed at under £450.00. We will compile a Statement of Costs when we prepare the case and the landlord considers that there is a good chance of him recovering his money.
