Alex, I am a landlord trying to repossess my property due to my tenant who passed

Resolved Question:

Hi Alex,
I am a landlord trying to repossess my property due to my tenant who passed on January
I have served two months notice on to her daughters which expires today since they are not paying since January.
The question is what forms do I need to make a claim at the court and how do I address it considering tenant is late??
Will accelerated repossession work in this situation???
Thanks.

Hello and thanks for requesting me.To be clear how many months are they in arrears?Alex
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Three months..
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Ok. Then assuming you have protected the deposit then you can use the accelerated procedure.You would need to use form N5bhttp://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n005b-eng.pdfAnd N119:http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n119-eng.pdfThe Court will consider this on the papers and decide whether to give possession.Can I clarify anything for you about this today pleaseAlex
