Repossession Solicitors

What is a repossession?

Repossession is the action of a landlord retaking possession of their property from a business tenant.

Common reasons for repossession is the failure of payments by the tenant business or breaches of the terms and conditions in the lease agreement.

What does repossession involve?

Each repossession case is distinct, meaning each case involves arranging a consultation to talk to a qualified solicitor about your matter.

The consultation will help our solicitors understand the precise details of your case, allowing them to outline the options available to you. Following the consultation, our solicitors will advise the best and most cost-effective route to take to achieve the outcome you desire.

How much does property repossession cost?

Each property repossession case is different. Our solicitors can’t give an exact estimate on the cost of your case before an initial consultation. We offer an untimed initial consultation priced at £108, including VAT to inform us on the details of your case.

How long does repossession take?

Again, this will depend on the complexity of your repossession case and the amount of negotiation needed. 

To get an accurate estimate to your case, you will have to book an initial consultation by calling our solicitors on 01273 726951. Once our solicitors have learnt the specifics of your case, they will be in an informed position to give you an accurate time frame.

Key stages involved in repossession?

Depending on your matter, a typical repossession case would involve:

  1. Initial consultation to understand your matter
  2. Review of the terms of the contract
  3. Advising on the contract, the breaches, your dispute and evidence needed regarding your claim
  4. Drafting and sending a letter before action to the other side outlining your claim and position
  5. Dealing with the response, if any
  6. Drafting and finalising your particulars of claim
  7. Issuing your claim at the court
  8. Dealing with the defence from the other side
  9. Progressing through the standard litigation court process
  10. Settling the claim out of court or going to trial if no settlement can be reached
  11. Enforcing the judgement if it’s in your favour or appealing any decision if unsuccessful, if there is reason to believe this would be successful

Not not every case will go through all of these stages. Many cases will be resolved after stage 4 if the evidence is compelling and the breach is clear.
