I have used the conveyancing services of Anna Beavers at Mounteney Solicitors for several properties, and as have my parents. Anna is super professional and overall a great firm with fantastic customer management skills, and a real sense that Anna and the whole team is working to your best interests as a client. As I say, I am a repeat customer and have recommended the firm to several friends too.
I’ve used this solicitors a few times now for both business and personal matters. The team are really approachable and Anna and Amy have been great! Can’t recommend enough and glad to have had the support through a house move and taking on a commercial lease.

Amanda and Katie were friendly, professional and very thorough in their handling of my sale and purchase of property. Altogether as a team of solicitors I was pleasantly surprised at their patience and availablity.
Having to sell a house after a bereavement is always going to be hard but Katie Reade at Mountney Solicitors made the whole thing effortless. She was always there if I needed anything and was just superb. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone needing conveyancing services. Thanks Katie

Katie recently completed the sale of my great Aunt's flat. Throughout the complicated and protracted sale, Katie kept us informed at every stage. She was considerate and supportive throughout, in fact Katie saved the day on many occasions. I would have not hesitation in recommending Kate and look forward to working with her again.


Are you a landlord struggling to regain control of your property from a non-compliant tenant?

If so, our Solicitors for Enforcing Possession on a Property can help. We are dedicated to securing possession orders and enforcing them through court bailiffs, safeguarding your rights as a property owner.

These services are essential to get right in residential property management. Incorrect drafting/processes may mean that the landlord is unable to obtain possession and/or arrears and other costs from their tenant.

Landlords cannot legally evict residential tenants unless they have obtained a court order for possession. Once a landlord does have a Possession Order, if the tenant doesn’t move out, that Possession Order ought to be enforced by bailiffs.

We will apply for the “Warrant”, that is the Court’s authorisation and direction to its officers, to enforce the possession order on your behalf; our fee does not include any subsequent litigation support work that may be required, that we will supply at our standard time rates.

Please note that this applies to English properties only. The Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 will come into force on 15 July 2022. This Act will fundamentally change the current system for letting residential property in Wales.

How long does it take to Enforce Possession on a Property?

The process for obtaining a Warrant of Possession typically involves several steps and can take around 7 weeks to complete.

The production of the application for the warrant can be undertake in about an hour once we can schedule it in our workflow, that can depend on how busy we are at any particular time.

After this, the application has to be sent to the Court for the Court to process, they often take about a fortnight to do so. Once issued, the date on which the warrant will actually be enforced depends on how busy the Court bailiffs are at a particular time.The date is rarely less than a month after issue, and can be considerably more at busy times.
