    How long does court awarded possession stay valid?

    Hello folks... after a little advice if possible please?

    I submitted my court papers (section 21 route with all appropriate documents) at the end of January and received a letter back from the courts instructing me it would be deemed served on the 1st of February and that the defendants had until the 14th to lodge any appeal.
    however on the 7th I received another letter back from the courts confirming that the T had agreed to pay the court fees and that possession was awarded with a date of February 15th given as date of tenancy termination.
    since then the T have contacted me requesting a little more time to get their affairs in order and vacate?
    so 3 things I'd like to know.
    1) how long does this judgment last? Ie could I still apply for the bailiffs next week, next month, next year? Etc
    2) what form do I need to submit to instruct bailiffs?
    3) how do I enforce the award of receiving the court fee's?

    thank you in advance

    I believe the possession order is valid for up to 6 years


      1.) I believe it's only a year.
      2.) Complete this in triplicate and send to court with fee: https://formfinder.hmctsformfinder.j...k/n325-eng.pdf
      3.) Deduct from deposit?

        Who is listed as landlord in the tenancy agreement?

        If the person you are living with is not listed, then the fact that he is a brother of the landlord is irrelevant and you are a tenant assuming you're not in some converted flat and the landlord live elsewhere in the same building or similar....

        Unless the brother is named on the tenancy agreement as landlord (or joint landlord), his residence in the property won't change anything relating to the AST.

        Whether you have an AST depends on what you rent. So, if you rent a room in a house with exclusive access - and have access to common...

        Hi hope someone can help with this situation.

        Tenants have been with me for over a year and signed joint tenancy. Now on a periodic tenancy the lead tenant has given me 1 months notice to vacate the property due to relationship break down. The other person wishes to stay in the property...

        Assuming statutory periodic and not contractual periodic with terms otherwise. If the tenant's notice was a valid notice to quit (in writing, at least one month if paying monthly, ending on the first or last day of a period of tenancy), then the tenancy would end on the notice expiry.

        If there is a joint tenancy, the notice by the exiting tenant's notice ends the tenancy (when it expires and assuming it was valid).
        That ends the tenancy for both of them and the other person will have to leave when the notice expires.

        If they don't leave, they will theoretically...
