The cost to evict a tenant depends on the type of action you take to evict them, whether you seek legal representation and whether you go to court. The overall court costs and solicitor fees can total between £1000 - £3000.

When tenants refuse to leave the property by the specified date outlined in the order for possession or they violate the terms of a suspended order, landlords can seek a warrant for possession from the court. This warrant authorises a bailiff to evict tenants if they do not comply.

The application for a warrant for possession can be made using either form N325 or the Possession Claim Online service, with a current fee of £130.

Upon approval, the court will issue a warrant for possession and send a notice of appointment, specifying the eviction date. Landlords must complete and return this form to the court to confirm the eviction. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of the eviction.

For a potentially faster eviction process, landlords have the option to transfer the warrant from the county court to the High Court. This allows High Court enforcement officers to carry out the eviction. Before transferring, landlords need permission from the county court, incurring an additional fee of £71.
