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

That's one of the reasons when fees are increased ( the last possession fee I believe was £285, increased to £355 ) they are far above inflation %'s
I read a while back, so can't accurately recall but I think MoJ published the Civil Justice system costs around £300 Million a year. - After fees are considered.

Peanuts - considering the cost of justice delayed. Especially if cost can be recoverable.

BUT it shouldnt be like this though.

Don't forget when booking Bailiffs, you will also need to fill in a a Risk Assessment form, about your tenants, Bailiffs need to know the risk the non-rent paying tenants pose to them, they may want to bring in a full battalion with tanks and body armour, to evict your tenants, or to be escorted by police, Yes evicting tenants is now a nightmare and a its become a joke!
