What would you do if your tenant stops paying rent?
Even honest and reliable tenants can fall into financial difficulty … loss of job, breakdown in relationships and other changes in circumstances can cause a tenant to default on their rent.
Ministry of Justice figures state that it takes on average 298 days (42.6 weeks) to gain possession of a property when evicting a tenant. With the average UK rent at £965 a month and the standard legal fees to evict a tenant including court fees around £1,156, the lost rent and legal expenses associated with an eviction can cost as much as £10,630!*
