Possession orders by members of The Landlord Association reach record numbers
Cases for removal of tenants for non payment of their rental payment obligations are set to surpass 20,000 over the coming 12 months.
Members of The Landlord Association have experienced a significant rise in the number of cases where tenants have failed to pay rent for 2 or more months, says Chairman, Mr D Evans.
"Between October 2017 and October 2018 there were almost 15,000 cases where a solicitor was needed to gain possession of a property in which the tenant had not met their rental payment obligations as stipulated in the corresponding AST's. That number is expected to escalate further over the coming twelve months with more than 20,000 expected to seek the assistance and advice of The Landlord Association".
Record levels of litigation have been recorded over the past 18 months acrid the UK. Between October 2017 and December 2018 the number of possession orders across all UK courts to gain possession of property using a section 8 notice, section 21 notice and accelerated procedures totalled more than 151,000.
"More than 10% of all UK litigation for regaining possession of property by private residential landlords was by members of The Landlord Association", Mr Evans explained.
"We are responding to the problems faced by our landlords with an online panel of solicitors".
