Are Squatters Tenants?

New laws came in last week regarding squatters, following the publicity regarding this I have had several enquiries from Landlords asking how this affects them.

Just to clear up the position, if someone is occupying your property under an Agreement, such as an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement or a licence they are not a squatter.

If you are having problems with a tenant and you would like possession of your property you need to serve a Notice Seeking Possession on your tenant and then if the tenant does not move out you then need to obtain a possession order from Court.

If you need any assistance regarding possession please contact me on
