    I would substitute
    "the judge would not make a possession order." with
    "the judge might not make a possession order."

    the judge might well though

    She did for me, and the defendant never even turned up!

    She was well-impressed with the newspaper photo trick as proof of service that some have suggested here. "I see...... belt and braces, is it?" said she...

          Filling in a Section 21

          Hello

          I have issued a section 21 and did not put a date in the expiry box. The notice given was 3 months prior to the end of the 6 month AST.

          Could anybody tell me if this is correct as it states the "Where the fixed term 2 months notice ends outside the fixed term an expiry date should be stated".

          Many thanks

            On the face of it, you should be OK; your Notice's expiry date coincided with (and was not outside) the fixed term expiry date.

              Possession order granted, house now empyt

              Hi all again.
              I've searched the forum and can't find an answer.
              I have been given a possession order and a date of possession for next week.
              The AST ends 2 days before this date.
              The house is empty and looks empty through the windows. The tenant has not told me they have left although the neighbours saw the removal vans last week.
              When can I let myself into the property?

                you would need the tenant to sign a surrender of tenancy and hand the keys back to you or if not wait until the possession date and then apply for bailiff.be very careful as tenant can still come back until then.

                  It is probably less stressful just to wait until the date of possession, unless you have anything in writing from tenants to confirm they have moved out, or they have returned keys.

                  Otherwise it would be sod's law that they would turn up again and claim illegal evciiton.

                  Fot the sake of two days, it's hardly worth it.
