    Use a private bailiff to remove T?

    T refused to move when issued with a 14day eviction notice. So I issued a warrant of possesion of land.

    After consistant softly softly nudges to the Bailiff Team at the courts they have given me a date 6 weeks away (8 weeks from submitting warrant)

    Is there a way this can be sped up? Can I hire a private Bailiff to do the deed in a shorter period of time?

    Reading up on Peaceful Eviction - I called the local police helpline who advised me to seek advice from a solicitor. All I asked was I have a peice of paper from the court asking T to leave. Can I re-enter property when T is out and change the locks.

    If you could do that, why would anyone employ bailiffs?
    Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong

      A good reply but pointless; it does not itself prove that re-entry is unlawful.
      Better: see the Protection from Eviction Act 1977.

      1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
      2. Telephone advice: see http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=34638.
      3. For paid advice about conveyancing/leaseholds/L&T, contact me* and become a private client.

        I am fairly sure that only a county court bailiff can enforce a county court possession order. But it's easy to find out. Ask a private bailiff and in the likely event they say no, then there's your answer. I think it's extremely unlikely that a private bailiff would pretend they had the power to enforce a warrant of possession, because if they didn't have the power and evicted somebody, they'd be in serious trouble.

        P.S. You don't have the authority to change the locks either.
