I’ve been awarded possession of my house and the bailiffs are booked for Thursday 7th May at 12 noon. (I’m 9m pregnant and this is also my due date!!!) The tenant is single mum with 3 kids so I have been liasing with the council who have to re house into B&B at £500 pw until they find her a house. I know they are desperate!
Could I take possession of the house on 7th and switch my tenant onto a holiday let contract until she’s rehoused. This could be a win win win for the council, the tenant and me?
1) The tenant gets to stay in the house for a few more weeks and has more time to clean it
2) The council pay me £400 pw instead of £500 pw, saving them money and giving them more time to re house her
3) I get to recoup my court costs and have my baby!
What’s the legal implications? Or should I just get her out this Thursday?
