I have a commercial property that I have not recived rent for

Resolved Question:

I have a commercial property that I have not recived rent for a year.
1. I have used bailiffs to try to collect the money,
2. We did not have any luck as the walking possession goods had no value.
3. We then forfeited the lease and had bailiffs visit and change the locks
4. The tenants kick the door down and renters the premise.
We called the police, but the police did not want to know as this is a civil matter?
They claim that they have squatters’ rights?

How do I get rid of these tenants

Alex Watts :

Ok.

Alex Watts :

What you need to do is complete form N5 - http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n005-eng.pdf and submit it to the County Court

Alex Watts :

The Court will list the matter for a hearing and decide whether to give possession.

Alex Watts :

Once possession is given then if they refuse to leave they can be evicted.

Alex Watts :

If they come back they can be evicted again because you have a Court Order.

Alex Watts :

so they can be evicted again and again.

Alex Watts :

But you need this Court Order to do it
