Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

I am desperately trying to find anything I can use to show to the courts that ANY further delay in a possession claim (as caused by the courts themselves delaying making a final decision/or by the defence continually requesting delays to a hearing) is totally prejudicial to me the claimant.
I have a case where a S21 & 8 were issued on Nov 19th and still, no eviction is insight. Rent arrears are only a small part – the biggest issue is the tenant damage to the property which can be shown to be the case on Nov 19th and persistently ongoing to date. More damage has been caused over lockdown and damage costs risen. An indep quote for the damage rectification (only as far as can be seen at present) stands at £12k. The tenant still has pets, is still smoking in the property and on the last visit (to accompany the indep quote chap who came out) weed was being smoked too.
The stress is unbelievable – I have taken this on as my parents (both over 75) simply can’t cope with this. They are not sleeping well and worry about the true cost of the damage once the tenant is out. This is going to eat into their savings to put right, to the point they might have no other choice than to sell when she is evicted.
Can anyone point me to any case law/judgements that were made in favour of the landlord that they are aware of where the denial of eviction is in total prejudice to the claimant?
