4 Private Landlords
How we can help private landlords avoid eviction costs
Avoid expensive eviction court costs with 2 Way Tenancy Solutions
As a private landlord you want to protect your investment and avoid disputes with your tenants, this may include non-payment of rent and rent arrears.
In a survey conducted by Homelet in 2017, over 50% of landlords surveyed stated that they’ve had problems with at least one tenant in the past.
Dealing with tenants in the right way can make a big difference in handling difficult issues such as non-payment of rent or rent arrears. Eviction is not taken lightly, however as a private landlord, you need to make sure the rent is paid to maintain mortgage payments.
There strict procedures in evicting your tenants including serving a section 21 notice or a section 8 notice which then must be followed up by a standard possession order which you apply through the courts. This can start to prove costly, so can you avoid this?

Landlords could see costs savings of up to £2500.00 per tenant. This takes into account the rent arrears, legal and void costs avoided.
Tenants on state benefits:
If you have tenants that receive benefits, the introduction of Universal Credit may be a concern to you and your rental income as some tenants will not be used to managing their own rent payments and it might even be the first time they’ve used a bank account.
The transition for tenants in receipt of Universal Credit has been well documented, with initial first payments taking up to six weeks which may lead to budgeting difficulties.
We will work with your tenants on a face to face basis to explain how the welfare reform will affect them and what measures they will need to put in place in order to avoid getting into rent arrears or not getting their payments.
