Claim for possession of holiday premises

Rachel was asked to advise the client company on the basis upon which a guest occupied its holiday accommodation in Kent.

The occupant had refused to leave when requested to do so, insisted that they held an assured shorthold tenancy and had also contacted national media outlets which ran stories about the case. Rachel gave highly practical advice on how to proceed and drafted the Particulars of Claim, which ultimately resulted in matters concluding shortly afterwards and the occupant being given 14 days to vacate the property.
