How long are courts taking to send notices?

Hi everyone, I have recently been to court and got an order for a tenant who is in arrears with over £15000 of rental payments.

The tenant was given until the 27th of April by the court to move out.

However, he is still there and we can not instruct the bailiffs as the court has yet to send the actual order.

We are in Sheffield and my question is to see from other landlords if this is the same up and down the country and how long is it taking?

Many thanks

Chris

I went to court last week, and received the written order 3 days later ( Lincolnshire )

It depends local loading on the Courts. But sounds to me that they have missed you or you stuck in ghe bottom of someone's in-tray! I suggest you chase!

Also in Sheffield and told by my solicitor that it takes the court a minimum of six weeks to respond to anything.
Completely unacceptable but probably the effect of civil servants “working” from home….. idle and overpaid useless people who would not survive in the real world.

Courts are helping and abetting tenants to steal our rental income. Why are they so sloppy?

because they can be and ultimately due to not being answerable to anyone (and if they - are nothing happens anyway). No incentive to do the job properly full stop as does not effect them.

Write a complaint to the court manager.

We currently have section 21 section that expired in November 2021 and we are still awaiting a court date. Has anyone else struggled to even get a court hearing? What is the average time most are waiting to get a day in court? (based in North Yorkshire)

I too am awaiting 'judgement'. My solicitor advised an 'accelerated procedure' which is supposedly quicker than a court hearing. This was sent to court in February. Tenant was served by letter on 9th April, no defence offered within 14 days so now awaiting 'judgement' (whatever that is) . I understand I then have to apply (more cost) for the court baliffs to evict him. A S21 was served on 14th July. Stolen rent, solicitors fees so total approaching £20,000. How is this fair? If I choose to take the tenant to the Small Claims Court this incurs further cost to myself and he can still avoid repaying.

One last point - he told me last week that he could repay me very much this week as he was 'desperately saving' for wherever he went after eviction.
These people are on another plant - live for free planet!!!

Stratford Family Court is taking months and even if you get a possession order it take 13 weeks to get it typed , it’s hopeless. Then you have months for the Baliff to come out.
Its broken like everything this hopeless government has a hand in , Passports , Prisons , NHS We need Jeff Bazos or Elon Muske
