Claims of chaos in tenancy eviction process
Landlord Action claims that the tenancy eviction process is in utter chaos. Reported problems with the county court system include lost files, year long delays and basic admin errors. These are resulting in some landlords facing repossession by their mortgage lenders as they are unable to meet their monthly payments, whilst non-paying tenants stay in situ. The situation isn’t ideal for tenants either as they need to be formally evicted in order to claim homeless status.
