Should I risk changing the hearing date?

Hi, I have been given a court review hearing date to recover my property. The review hearing is 7th June, however, today I have received a letter from my tenant saying she is going to move out on the 13th of June.

Do I continue with the hearing, as may be a ploy for me to cancel it? Or can I rearrange the hearing to another date after the 13th,
then if she moves out all well and good, but if she doesn’t, I can go ahead with the review gearing?

Sorry, getting sceptical in my old age as section 21 was for her to vacate property on 31st March.

Many thanks

Susan

It's normal but not right. Perhaps you could consider a moneyclaim for the costs? Given that the tenant has an aversion to courts it would probably suffice to threaten her with legal action.

thank you, i will look into this.

was bit amazed by court ,given that all forms say about defendant paying costs ,ticked box on all paperwork ,and shelter tell tenants they may be liable for court costs.

At least I have property back,and just a bit of work to do inside,more outside.
