    Possession order and Money Order obtained - next steps

    Dear all

    Thanks for all your help so far.

    So our tenant didn't even bother to turn up at the possession order hearing.

    The possession date is the 16th January.

    How long does it take for the court to send the possession order documents across to us? as the hearing was the 2nd January and its still not arrived

    Also he hasn't replied to our agents email making him aware of date. Is there a projected timeline to get a county court bailiff for removal? I'm guessing a few months still

    Each court has its own bailiffs and document production and lead times.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      See Shelter website for typical eviction timeline. Tenant appears to be doing everything as required by law.

        Under what grounds?

        If he pays the sum off?

          He can pay off arrears (if s8..) then ASK the court to take action, he can raise repair issues (conditions apply) or he can raise errors (real or otherwise..) in your paperwork.

          We do (still...) have standards and depriving someone of their home is, rightly, treated by some/most judges carefully.

          I knew of a case (can't recall is s21 or s8..) where are 'phone call to court/bailiffs 5 mins before appointed bailiff time succeeded in re-examination of case (sorry, can't recall details..): And a solicitor who got s21 paperwork wrong 4 times in a row...

          Problems the prudent landlord expects, however annoying they may be.
