Possession Order gained but problems persist!

In reply to Leigh
Please be careful what you do. Exemption From Eviction procedure could be another Government Trap. Your application has to go back to the Judge for yet another hearing. Yet Another Chance for Costly delay.
In my case the Tenants received a Large Notice from the Court Advising them it is not too Late, Get free Advise Phone this Number for Free Help. Solicitors may have even put their flyers in the Pack. The message is clear.
` It Cost You nothing Rent Dodging Scumbag, so give it A GO.`
In my case about a week after I was informed it had gone back to the Judge I received a lengthy Defence and Counter Claim for Compensation and to set my possession Order aside. 9 weeks after it was issued. for possession and over £10000 in rent arrears.
During the whole process 6 Months in total the tenants never turned up, or submitted any evidence. and even sent a lot of papers return to sender.
This was my situation , but it appears to be the standard off the shelf delaying defence.
` We never received any paper work at all.`
You made A Civil Procedure Code Mistake.
A counter Claim for Repairs. (You Know Nothing About.).
The Court orders a 15 Minute hearing . There will not be enough time for him to look at it. And I will now need to Go to trial. Which Could be Months down the line. My Tenants are now on Legal Aid laughing at me living rent free, Whilst my Legal Fees are Racking up.
If you Transfer your Case to the High Court , You may have to have a trial in the High Court if they lodge any form of defence or counterclaim.
I hope it does not happen to anyone else but I think it may become the norm. The Judge knows if the Possession Claim qualifies for exemption when he issues it. So why does it have to go back to the Judge again when they ignore the order and you need to instruct the bailiffs... Read More

Thank you for your comments can you direct me to the relevant pages that confirm this. Assuming this is the case Would the Independent Regulated Companies be the same ones that Tout there services as Legally `write off all your debts` If your not happy with the memorandum how long are you expecting the process to take. (Please consider it currently takes a year)
And would you be comfortable with receiving no rent on your property for years, and not to get it back whilst they claim mental health issues. Would you agree that a private citizen should take over this responsibility for the Government
And what legal costs are acceptable. Whilst they get legal aid legal... Read More

Stop cynical life-threatening licensing money-grab during pandemic crisis

Reply to the comment left by RL at 22/01/2021 - 16:14
Hi RL
You wont get the chance to quote anything. And believe me you will be suffering from stress The council HSSR inspections they are the Judge Jury and executioner and there is no way they are leaving without finding fault or Hazards that they will enable them to charge you for the Notice. they also charge the agent . I am not sure what all councils are charging but this week it was going to be £485 for the report, for the Landlord and another £485 because I manage my own through an agency. Then up to £30000 for each offence. That is serious wonka. Up to a maximum of £90000. You will then be given 28 days to get all the work done even if the tenant has caused the damage. You could be faced with up to £90000 on one property plus another £90000 for the agent . And if anyone thinks it will not happen to me dream on. On one inspection it was an Hazzard because the Door could not be locked (Tenant had lost the Key) Also expect a visit if you try to evict anyone.... Read More

Legal action against Government's lockdown evictions ban

Reply to the comment left by Carol at 16/11/2020 - 17:46
Hi Carol, Best of Luck with your plight , Your not alone there are 1000`s of us facing constant payout I am having to pay section 21 Taxes on income I do not have. I have to pay full Council Tax on empty Properties, selective licensing fees to solve trumped up issues by councils in order to charge fees. Up grade perfectly good electrics in properties in a very short time. EPC upgrades , Spend a fortune in time and money trying to evict non paying and antisocial tenants who can run up un-necessary costly legal fees, with impunity in a possession process that is now taking years....

Government’s approach is almost certainly unlawful

Reply to the comment left by Chris @ Possession Friend at 31/10/2020 - 12:29Very Well Said Chris.
As Individual Landlords we are easy meat. A Scape Goat. For the Government Broken Housing Policy.
But between we house a 4.5 million Households. Or approximately one fifth of all households in the Country.
But the Government and Councils treat us as Mugs.
We need some one to get united behind and David is willing to step up to the Plate.
