According to figures published by the Ministry of Justice for the period April to June 2022 landlord possession claims have increased 160% from 6,997 to 18,201.
There has been a significant increase in section 21 evictions, the so-called “no fault” possession claim compared to figures taken in 2019. This could be influenced by previous government proposals to abolish section 21 at an undetermined future point.
With the recession coupled with the cost of living crisis it might mean that tenants may not be able to keep with their rent payments which may see a further increase in possession claims being made.
As landlord, you have the right to evict a tenant and take back possession of your property if they fail to pay rent or violate their tenancy agreement, or in the event that you simply want to take back the property without any fault by the tenant.
