    Thanks. And I should send the judge's copy to the court along with the witness statement in advance of the hearing?

    If the tenant has left the property, they're probably not going to defend the case, so you need 3 copies of everything (one for you, one for the judge and one for the tenant, just in case).

    Contents (everything else with a big number on it).
    Tenancy agreement(s).
    Notice.
    Evidence of service.
    Evidence that the grounds you're relying on have been met.

    Use a largish font so it's clear to read (but not so huge it looks like you're expecting a blind judge!)

    If the tenant's moved out, you might consider forgetting it altogether and just repossessing.
    Which isn't risk free, but would save time and effort.

  • What documents do I need to send court in advance of hearing for possession claim

    Hello everyone,

    I am preparing to attend a court hearing on 9th August regarding a possession claim I am making due to rent arrears, which I triggered with a section 8 notice (though the tenant seems to have now left the property anyway). What documents or evidence would I need to send the court in advance?

    I am a member of the RLA and they have an example witness statement on their website, which refers to: 1) a copy of the tenancy agreement, 2) a copy of the section 8 notice I sent and 3) an up to date rent statement.

    So those are all the documents I would need to send then?
