This was the week I finally finished my re-vamped Do it Yourself Eviction Kit and made it live!
It is now one kit rather than several and all the different types of eviction are interlinked so you can click from one to the other.
There are two main sections, divided into the two types of procedure – accelerated and standard. The standard is then divided into four parts – rent arrears claims, section 21 where you can’t use the accelerated procedure, common law evictions under Notice to Quit and forfeiture.
I have been meaning to do something for the common law tenancies (ie those with resident landlords or limited companies as tenants) for a long time. Hopefully this new integrated kit will be easier for people to use than the old ones.
