Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

Hi all, I am in need of some advice please. I had a repossession hearing under section 8 non payment of rent. The tenant showed up and claimed disrepair. The judge wasn’t happy and had a go at them, but said he had to give them 14 days to file a defence and adjourned till 16th Dec.
The tenant has failed to file and it’s day 18
My question is; can I apply for judgement in default to end this early and if so how do I go about doing so. I’ve been told I can email the court clerk but….
I want this elevated to the high court and want a money judgement none of which was put in the court forms as I was told I could do this at the hearing, but the judge didn’t give me an opportunity. Will clerk be able to do this?
