    Please help after Possession Order & Money granted-Tenat refusing to move out

    I was awarded an 14day outright possession order, money judgement.
    I didn't receive the paperwork until last week Thursday.

    Tenant is refusing to move out claiming she did not receive the court order.
    Kindly assist me

    I have filled from 293 to get sealed in court myself so I can get this sent off to HCEOs so they can evict her quickly as I hear county court balliffs are not quick enough.

    I want to register a CCJ against her
    I want my property back.

    Please what is the quickest route and paperwork I need,
    owes over 6000pounds. I am loosing my mind.

    I need to get her out in the next 14days
    I can afford any more debt.

    The tenant is entitled to stay until bailiffs remove them.
    You will be very lucky to get them out in a fortnight, even with HCEO bailiffs (they're often not that much faster than county court bailiffs).

    The money judgement won't be registered automatically and will only be registered if you either escalate the matter in the county court.

    First get possession and then focus on trying to recover the money.
    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).

      The use of HCEO to evict tenants is only a discretionary order and Judges can turn down such request...

        Unlikely gone in 14 days - suggest you plan for longer.

        As said tenant has absolute right to remain until Bailiffs/HCEO evict. And can appeal the case - or get it chucked out - at least until Bailiffs walk up front path.

        Sorry, one of the expected risks of being a Landlord

            You will need Court's permission to use HCEOs.

              Okay.

              HCEOs

              I have got the form 293A -combined certificate of judgement and request for writ of control or writ of possession.

              Am I right to assume
              I complete part 1

              Court seals part 2- my local county court

              Then I send the completed 293A form off with the writ of control form ( What address do I send this to? the High court in strand?)
              Please advise

              Also for the county court balliffs- Do I need to complete a specific form? I cant find any advise on this. Any one who has experience please help me.

                    Since its over £5,000 is it wise to request for a warrant of control still.
                    Or is there another way of doing this. Thank you.

                      Current status
                      tenant told me yesterday she was not leaving 10/2/20 so I didn’t bother to go to the property as I didn’t want a legal case on my hands
                      i submitted the ballif form today 11/2/20

                      Right now-
                      I received the message below from the council



                      I understand that XX is being evicted today could you provide figure of outstanding rent please with court charges.

                      You stated in our last communications on 18/11/2019 that rent had not been paid did you receive no further rent to date.


                      Is this a good sign? Or they are still messing me about👀

                        It's probably the council trying to establish if the tenant's notice was really due to their not paying rent and which would remove the council's duty to give them emergency housing as they've made themselves deliberately homeless.

                        Tell them that she's not being evicted until bailiffs are available and confirm the rent owed.

                              Council has a copy of s8 and they also sent me a questionnaire to fill back in November which I completed. They asked about rent statement and I sent it etc showing where she defaulted.

                              below are the council questions and responses from me

                              1. Question-When did the tenancy commence and was a deposit paid?

                              Answer- Tenancy commenced on the 18th of May 2017 and a deposit was paid.

                              2. Question- what type of tenancy was granted to the tenant?

                              Answer- Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement.

                              3. Question-What is the rental charge and how frequently is it payable?

                              Answer- Rental charge £1100 and meant to be paid monthly.

                              4. Question- How was the charge being paid? (cash/cheques, standing order, etc)

                              Answer- Rent paid by bank transfer

                              5. Question-Are there any rent arrears? (if so, please provide details)

                              Answer-As at 18/11/2019, tenant is in arrears of £3600

                              6. Question - Was there any breach of the tenancy conditions? (if so, please provide details)

                              Yes, the tenant has breached the conditions of the tenancy. She has not paid her rent on time as agreed for the 18th of every month, she has not paid in full on a number of occasionsas stipulated in the tenancy agreement and has finally stopped paying her rent.

                              7. Question- Why was the notice served?

                              Answer- The notice was served due to non-payment of rent for two months (September and October 2019) and balances on rent in July and August 2019.



                              8. Question- Please could you provide an up to date rent book/ statement?

                              Answer-Rent statement for last twelve months attached (December 2018- November 2019).

                              9. Question- is there anything the tenant can do to prevent this eviction from going ahead?

                              Answer- Yes, if tenant clears the outstanding arrears and pays the rent on time and regularly.

                                I have today been told that I am getting evicted and that there is a hearing next week.
                                But I haven't received any Court papers, no notice to quit, no section 8, or section 21.
                                I don't even know how this is possible as I thought there was a ban on eviction hearings.

                                If there's mould in the property it almost has to come from condensation inside.
                                The (alkaline) lime in the plaster and the acid in the mortar mean that water coming from outside doesn't usually allow mould to develop.

                                I wonder if I could trouble someone for advice, having recently become a Landlord for the first time ?

                                A year ago I inherited a small 1970s one bedroom flat in Birmingham.


                                The flat was originally heated with a couple of electric bar heaters....

                                The agent works for the landlord, and if they've found themselves in a conflict if interest, have to resolve it in favour of the landlord.

                                Yes, the courts are still just about functioning, so a money claim is still possible, if unlikely.
                                If a landlord came here seeking advice about a tenant in arrears, I would suggest a money claim rather than a possession claim, in the first instance.

                                Yes if they have claimed for it, but it depends on what basis the possession proceedings are made. I don't think there was sarcasm, just a character.
