    Eviction 2022

    Good morning fellow landlords,

    After many months waiting for order of possession my tenants has finally received it. I was hoping they would leave on the date given on the possession however to my disappointment they are still there. I will now be applying for a warrant of possession. Does anyone know the time scale of the bailiffs finally evictions my tenants. Based in London.

    Background infor- section 21 served in May 2021, applied for a Possession order in December 2021, order for possession May 2022.


    You should email the Bailiffs to get an estimated time frame, usually between 6-8 weeks, but get your paperwork sent out asap so there's no additional delays, there will soon be light at the end of the tunnel and you can move on.


      Thatcher's 1988 Housing Act s5(1) gives tenants right to stay until bailiffs/hceo, same Act that permits you to serve S21.
      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


        I had a wait of 5 weeks for the bailiff appointment recently - outer NW London


          That’s great news to hear, fingers crossed mine will
          be 5 weeks too.


            I have asked Nottingham court the same question and had an unhelpful reply - “we are unable to answer your question as there are many factors to consider including any backlog the fees section may have and whether any annual leave the bailiff may have booked”.

            anyone any idea? If it’s going to be longer than a few weeks, I will ask my solicitor to move to high court.



              Baillif wait was approx 4 months from possession notice. Took five minutes for tenants to leave, unsure why appointment time took so long


                Hi sunshine newbie,
                oh gosh a whole 4 months. What city was this in. Hoping it is not London fingers crossed.


                  Sorry to say it was south London.

                    Good afternoon all

                    I wanted some advice on the below scenario.

                    I have come across a house which i'm interested in at a auction which has an attractive buy it now price compared to market value.

                    No viewings are available as i'm assuming the tenant is being awkward....

                    The way that the payments work is that they will discount the DD's.

                    So the DDs will be taken at a reduced or zero amount, or the amount of the DD will still be taken and then (immediately) refunded back to the bank account.

                    The £400 is not being credited as a 'lump sum' but...

                    Does anyone think their tenants are ready for the huge rises in energy bills this winter? Given that unit prices are expected to more than double from where we are now (and that is a big rise already) does anyone think tenants really have a grasp on this?

                    So you're thinking of buying a property with a tenant in place, you have not seen the TA, or 'special clause', have not confirmed what the tenancy is, not looked/seen the legal pack, not viewed the house, no survey, and have no idea as to condition.

                    My advice - don't touch it. The alternative...

                    Worse, tenant could have moved in years & years ago, actually a "rent act" tenancy, controlled, LOW rents and even more impossible to evict.

                    Ask tenant when they 1st moved in (unless other evidence e.g. when place built...). Don't believe vendor, agent, solicitor....

                    There's a reason why it is being sold in an auction, be careful and do your homework before buying, could be a costly mistake.

                    I purchased my father in laws flat 20 years ago where he has life time tenancy. He is now needing to go into residential care due to dementia which has followed a medical assessment and report. Can i sell the property when he enters residential care or do i need to wait until he dies?

                    My tenant was supposed to have left yesterday but she hasn't so this morning I posted my N325-eng form with the £130 for the bailiffs.

                    I am expecting the court to take about three weeks to issue the warrant and four to six weeks for the bailiffs to come so about two months or so. She...

                    If the seller could evict the tenant, they would have done so.
