After a lengthy wait to gain possession through the courts from a tenant who has not paid rent since February 2020 we finally succeeded in gaining a Possession Order on 29th Jan 2021. The arrears are significant at over £15,000 and we had hoped to be able to get moving, clear up the place and recoup some rent ASAP.
However, two things are in the way – the local council, who have advised the tenant to stay put until the bailiffs arrive and yet further court delays. In order to be exempt from the national eviction ban, a form has to be submitted N244 to the court to request the exemption.
This case should definitely be exempt as the rent arrears are over 6 months, but the form was submitted 2 weeks ago, and we haven’t heard anything back from the court.
This feels like a further limbo period of unknown duration following many such periods in the last 12 months. We have had the case transferred to the High Court to allow High Court bailiffs who don’t have the same current delay times as the County Court bailiffs, but they can’t write and give notice until the exemption from the eviction ban is made official.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Or has anyone else succeeded in getting the exemption any other way?
Many thanks in advance
