What are the two legal sections to evict a tenant?
In England & Wales the two sections of the Housing Act 1988 that relate to eviction of tenants are known as ‘Section 8’ and ‘Section 21’.
How much notice does a Section 21 notice have to give?
A Section 21 notice must give at least 2 months’ notice. You may need longer if you have a ‘contractual’ periodic tenancy. Our solicitors can advise you on how best to proceed.
Are Section 21 evictions being banned?
The government has announced that it will legislate to end Section 21 evictions. The provisions of Section 21 that most landlords find useful will be migrated to Section 8.
What happens if my tenant doesn’t leave following a notice?
Following the appropriate notice being issued and the tenant still refusing to leave it will be possible to take the matter before a court. We will issue proceedings, and the court will give your tenant 14 days to submit a defence. Following a court hearing that awards in your favour as a landlord the tenant must leave by the date provided by the court, and they may face eviction enforcement if they fail to do so. We can provide a fixed-fee service for instructing bailiffs to evict.
Welcome to Birmingham
Birmingham is the UK’s second city, home to around 1.15 million people, and was a manufacturing powerhouse during the industrial revolution in the 18th century. Although the manufacturing tradition continues to this day, more than 22% of jobs in the city are now in the financial services sector.
Birmingham recently saw the highest increase in rental demand in the UK with a 25.2% rise from Q4 2020 to Q1 2021.
During the first quarter of 2021 more than 46% of properties on the rental market were snapped up by tenants. Data from estate agents also suggests a 51% increase in rental enquiries across Birmingham. Demand for city centre properties is especially high.
Demand for rentals across Birmingham is being driven in part by growth at the city’s universities. Birmingham has the largest regional pipeline of purpose-built student accommodation with around 6,700 beds.
Thousands of tenancies across the city of Birmingham are completed without any problems, but if a problem does occur landlords in Birmingham will need to turn to a trusted local firm of solicitors who can help them with a wide range of challenges.

Your tenant may have let them in (people not on the tenancy agreement) or they may have let themselves in while the property was empty, unoccupied or unsecured. We can help remove squatters and trespassers from both residential homes and commercial properties.
