    What if tenants refuse to leave?

    One thing that I believe hasn't been discussed here is what happens if tenants refuse to leave a flat. Can they simply be evicted (as in: opening the flat and throwing out everything the tenant), or do they have many legal recourses they can use to delay the eviction by several months (of free accommodation)? Does anybody know the law or has personal experience?

    The court will appoint balliffs who will do it quick smart.

    Its a simple procedure at the court which you can do by yourself. the hearing is Ex Parte which means the tenant does not even know your doing it. Read the ordinance as a whole.

    This will explain the mechanics

    If it's anything like the UK - it takes months and months and months to get them out, and their debts get bigger and bigger... But if you're selective with your tenants and buy the sort of property that appeals to professionals, you will only rarely encounter these sorts of problems.

    Lucky then that it isn't.

    I get the impression it's nothing like the UK. All rights to landlord and none to tenant.
