The law takes eviction very seriously. The process must be conducted diligently. Judges will rarely overlook procedural errors in the eviction process. An apparently minor error can result in an adjournment or even the case being struck out so you have to start the whole process again.

Delays can be expensive if they extend the time that your very valuable asset is not earning its keep.

    Our clients, their words

    Our experience has been first class with polite, professional yet, at the same time, friendly responses to all our enquiries. Everything was made very clear from the outset. Very reasonable fees for the level of service provided. Expectations were exceeded in terms of the swift, helpful responses to queries. Friendly and efficient service, prompt answers to questions-even during evenings and weekends! Kept informed all through the process, we would not hesitate to recommend your service to others, thank you!
    Mrs Wood - Worcester
    This is to say a big thank you to you for all the prompt and personal attention you gave to us when we were in dire need of professional assistance at a time when things were never more impossible for us. You had a total grasp of the situation acted immediately, never failed to ring me back and keep us informed and acted on our behalf very pro-actively. We cannot praise your practice and people enough and would gladly give you a reference at any time for people in our situation who need an excellent knowledgeable solicitor.
    Mrs Bentley - Stoke on Trent
    Good advice on a frustrating matter for us. Always professional and strong customer focus. Costs were not quite the same as set out at the start of the process, but Simon was in the end reasonable given the costs to be recovered from the defendants. The case was more difficult with regards us currently living in Australia, so we weren’t able to meet face to face for example." Costs were reasonable given the costs to be recovered from the defendants. Overall we achieved a successful outcome at a reasonable cost with regards a stressful and frustrating matter with our tenants. I think Simon’s knowledge of the legal aspects and requirements was excellent. We were talking initially to our estate agent who was previously a lawyer, but in hindsight had poorly advised us on a number of aspects of the case, so I wish we had gone to Simon much sooner. He gave us a lot more confidence that we could recover the rent monies due.
    Mr Howell - Adelaide
    Very professional and good advice. Thanks
    Mr Stone - Grimsby
    "I was provided with an absolutely wonderful service by Simon, I would highly recommend him, my tenant eviction went through without any glitches and Simon kept me informed every step of the way.
    Ms Broderick - London
    The service provided by Simon and his team could not have been better. We had a tenancy eviction completed successfully in much less time than anticipated. Using specialist professionals to act on our behalf, made for a very straightforward and stress free process. A free initial telephone consultation and surprisingly competitive rates too - what more could you ask for? Highly recommended.
    Andy MacLeod - July 2017
    I would 100% recommend Simon and his staff. Besides being very friendly and professional Simon successfully won our case in evicting tenants in a very short time period. We had previously gone to one of these “Tenant Eviction Experts” that you find on the Internet for a so-called fix fee and to be frank they are just form fillers….they are NOT solicitors. After 8 months and 3 court hearings we were getting nowhere, switched to Simon and success.
    Meself - April 2017
    Excellent - just used Simon Vollans & Co to deal with the eviction of a very difficult tenant & they have been superb - great service & flawless advice from start to finish. Highly recommend and would not hesitate to use their services again (although rather hope I don't have to!)
