Finally, the courts officially reopened, after six months of suspension. Some cases on possession matters will be prioritised including: Anti-Social Behaviour, Domestic Violence and Rent Arrears totalling over a year.
We suspect there are about 55-60k possession cases in the court system now, with 30k of them being Social Tenancies.
We have now received this notification below of a trial date from Edmonton County Court at the end of last week set down for trial in December 2021, yes that’s in 15 months time.
Our landlord has possession, but pursuing the Guarantor for the arrears debt, the Guarantor is defending the case.
Let’s wait and see how the backlogs are dealt with. I believe the delays will be something that has never been seen before. I hope I’m wrong for many a landlords’ sake.
