For both s8 notice and s21 notices, what happens if the tenant does not vacate?

County Court

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


High Court

*

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
