It will generally take between 6 to 8 weeks for a judge to grant a possession order under Section 8 or Section 21. However, it is not uncommon for tenants to ignore the possession order granted by the courts, in which case you will have to take the process further to seek eviction by County Court Bailiffs. In some circumstances, we may even need to seek High Court Enforcement to forcefully evict your tenants.
If the eviction process is followed correctly (which our specialists will ensure), you should expect to regain possession of your property in no more than 2-3 months. However, there are some exceptional cases where the process could take slightly longer.
