The eviction process


the law explained

Perhaps the most common complaint that a landlord has is about the time it takes to evict a tenant.

Iain and Sharon need you to understand that they will do everything in their power to ensure a successful tenancy.  However, things can go wrong and they think it is important for you as a landlord to have the law and eviction process explained upfront.

They want you to have as much information to support you.  They don’t want to hide the fact that things may not always turn out how you plan.  Instead they feel it is important to share with you what to expect should the worst happen.
