For both s8 notice and s21 notices, what happens if the tenant does not vacate?
You will need to apply for a Warrant for possession
You can apply to the County Court where the possession order was made for the Court Bailiff to go and secure the premises on your behalf.
Remember if you have a suspended possession order, prior to applying for an Warrant of possession, you will need to seek the permission of the court.
The Court Bailiff will after payment of the required fee and requisite form being completed, attend at the property and evict anyone still in possession
The Tenant will be given notice of the time and the date of the warrant
If time is of the essence, the Court Bailiff may not be appropriate and you may wish to consider making an application for High Court Enforcement.
Using High Court Enforcement requires seeking the transfer of the case to the High Court for a High Court Bailiff to be instructed.
Formalities need to be followed, but this method can be quicker than waiting for the county court bailiff which can in some cases take a month or so
