    Filling N5b Question- A Flat is a dwelling house or part of a dwelling house?

    Hi All

    I am about to submit N5b Possession Of Property Claim soon. I was advised by my local County Court that I can submit the claim ONLINE at https://www.possessionclaim.gov.uk/pcol/ and this will save me £50.

    This is a very attractive way of submitting claim and seems like I am quanlified to do so according to the rules.

    Has anyone done this online before? Have you had a good experience?

    Or do it by post is better?

    Thank you.

    The court were wrong.

    N5b is for section 21 claims.
    PCOL is for section 8 claims under grounds 8, 10 or 11.

      Thank you Snorkerz.

      OK I will do by post.

      Court also told me if I do by Court then :"The Court requires 1 copy for the Court and a further copy for each defendant. The fee must be payable to HMCTS and is £175.00."

      Are they right to say the above? I though I need to submit 3 copies.

      Thanks.

        3 copies, one for the court, one for the defendant and 1 to be sent back to you with a pretty little court stamp on it!

        The fee is £175.

          Thank you for your advise.

          Do you think I should serve N5b to Court straight after S21 expires? The tenancy agreement finishes end of today. The tenant is clearly not moving out. Can I serve from tomorrow? Is it better to wait a little?

          When post to Court, is it better by recorded delivery or other method?

            It is fine to send it to the court the day after expiry. So long as you keep copies for yourself (in case of loss) it is fine to use regular post.

              >>>Help: N5b Claim of Possession form Questions<<<

              Hi All,

              I am filing a N5b form and have the following questions. Hope someone can help:

              - My property is a two bedrooms flat in a buiding with few others. Is the premises ' a dwelling house' or 'part of a dwellinghouse'?

              -On page 'Notes for the defendant', there is a CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE section. Do I need to get tenant-the defendant to fill this part before I send to Court? Or ! Since it reads ' I certify that the claim form of thiwhc this is a true copy was served by me on....by positing it to the defenants(s) on....at the address stated on the first page of the claim form.'

              Do I-the Claim/Landlord have to fill this part? Do I have to send a copy to my tenant? Also it says 'completed on court copy only'. So if I send three copies to the Court, I only need to have one copy with this section filled? The Court will post this page to my tenant?

              It says 'Officer of the Court' at the bottom of this section, so the Court fill this part?

              I am a bit confused!


              Thank you.

                If your tenant rents the whole flat, it is a dwellinghouse. If they rent a room, it is 'part'.

                The claim form is the n5b and the dark orange box is for the court staff to record they have sent it to the tenant

                  Thank you. However on the Guidance it says "1. If the premises of which you seek possession are part of a building,identify the part(e.g. 'Flat 3' or 'room 6 and 7')."

                  So I am a bit confused....

                        Hi all,

                        I am filling N5b claim for possession of property.

                        On Page 2, point 1, I need to state whether the premises is dwelling house or part of a dwelling house.

                        I understood my tenant is renting the whole flat so I am seeking possession of a dwelling house.

                        However on the Guidance it says "1. If the premises of which you seek possession are part of a building,identify the part(e.g. 'Flat 3' or 'room 6 and 7')."

                        So I am a bit confused!

                        Please help.

                          The limited company system has been abused for too long by people trying to save on tax by claiming they are a company.

                          Rachel Reeves R4 this am told the interviewer that Labour (when in power) would raise money by taxing those with BTL property much more than at present, she opined it was wrong that “they” were “getting away with it”. No challenge from BBC or fact check as to present tax. You are warned.

                          I thought the main issue of taking a tenant on UC is not so much the fact they are receiving benefits, but the fact that its a pain in the proverbial to evict as the council tell them to sot tight until forced out by bailiffs....

                          Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

                          I think you need to ask whether he/she is responsible for the things you say, and whether these warrant immediate attention as you think they do:

                          Hi just after some advice. I have been renting the property for 4.5 years, 4 of those with a fantastic landlord and 6 months with a new landlord. When he took over he immediately increased the rent by 25%, annoying but perfectly within his rights. The main issue is maintainance and repairs. I cant report...

                          It is in the nature of co-ownership that each owner owns the whole and each is therefore entitled to occupy the whole. The sister's right.therefore is not to receive rent but to occupy the property as well. If the sister does not want to share occupation but wants some benefit then, keeping things simple,...
