    Is that the case if the S8G8 claim is only for possession and not for arrears?

      It depends on the judge.
      Often they're just happy to have an excuse to delay / defer a hearing.

      So if possession is based on unpaid rent and another court is going to come to a decision on the rent, possession can be deferred.

      And it might have no impact at all.
      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).

        Its a slippery slope. As soon as a tenant finds out that you are not going to do anything about late payments or rent arrears they take the pith.
        Ask yourself what a professional would do ? As soon as a payment was late I would assume they would send a 7 day notice to pay with a notice that if it was not paid they would be served with notice to quit.
