    Imminent eviction

    Hello All

    Update : My tenant has no plans to move out before bailiffs arrive which is imminent. I have no clue what the bailiffs will do. He will start complaining that he has nowhere to go although he lives somewhere else just keeps his stuff in the property for free, he might say he is feeling unwell etc. I keep my fingers crossed that the bailiffs will remove him.

    The bailiffs are instructed by the courts to remove the T on the agreed date and time, unless there is some major junction which prevents this, the T will be escorted off the property one way or another. I would just advice you to stay away once you have made contract with the bailiffs on the day so that tensions aren't increased further.

      Make sure you have the locksmith attend as well, if I were you.

      A beefy locksmith adds some perceived backup to the bailiff, even if you know he would not get involved. Bailiff will probably be able to recommend someone reliable.

        It sounds likely your tenant will leave his possessions in your property. Check the Tenancy Agreement for any reference to how long you have to keep them. When he's out, give him notice of the date by which he needs to collect them.

          Thank you all for your support. Really appreciated.

          The locksmith looks beefy on the photo and yes I will keep away. Hope the bailiffs and the locksmith will turn up.

              Don't expect the Sweeney to turn up. Many county court bailiffs look like little old men or bored housewives. Any hint of trouble they'll just back off and call the police.

              Select your locksmith on competency rather than beefiness.

              It's very unlikely you won't get your property back on the day.

                this is true, the county court bailiff who came to ours was actually late, because he had to call the police in the job before us. although he looked tired, he was kind and ultimately was also relived that that my tenants have left.

                  Perce Good luck! 🍀 My tenants were huffing and puffing about only being given two weeks notice to move (and the other year and a half), but they still went when the bailiff arrived!

                  I thought that the owner/landlord or their representative was supposed to be nearby at the appointment so that possession could be handed over? Could be wrong! We just waited 50m up the road until the tenants had gone.

                      Of course, they did.
                      It only costs £14.

                      Because of the delay in evictions, there's pretty much nothing the judge can do anyway.
                      Almost everyone thinks it will allow the whole case to be reheard.
                      But it doesn't work like that.
                      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).

                          He wrote a long email to the court. After the lockdown he is afraid to face the world, mentally cannot cope etc. Money issues. Etc. Cannot write everything here. Wants an ext for 2 weeks. He removed all his stuff from the property though.

                            JPKeats - thank you. What are the chances for the eviction to be delayed ?

                              Perce , i have feeling the judge may dismiss the case; however he may be advised at court to apply for mental health breathing space.....if your tenant is telling the truth, it shouldn't be too difficult for him to get a referral with all the symptoms he is apparently facing. because that is what the court legal assistant advised our tenants (just breathing space not mental health breathing space). nevertheless our tenant had to leave but he did get away ( at least for now) without paying the arrears
