Eviction Delays Can Cause Health and Safety Risks

Updated: Dec 14, 2020

TEAM Shergroup was paid a great compliment today from one of its law firm clients which is a global law firm.

“Dear Jackie, I just wanted to thank you for all your help last week in relation to the enforcement process. It was very helpful for our client to have the enforcement process conducted so efficiently. I really appreciated your guidance (and patience) in our initial call with respect to the application process and that you achieved all the timelines you set out. The regular updates on your part were immensely useful for our client. Please also thank June from my side for all her efforts with respect to obtaining the sealed form N293A and all her advice in relation to the process.”

We were offered this possession job because one of the larger enforcement companies were unbelievably slow in actioning the transfer of the possession order from the Clerkenwell County Court to the High Court.

June and Jackie, part of our friendly Business Solution Advisor TEAM, (with over 50 years’ experience between them) worked together to arrange an appointment in the Court. This then enabled the certificate of transfer to be sealed, which in turn enabled the High Court Writ of Possession to be issued in under 2 days. Jackie attended the Court herself and sat and waited for the certificate to be issued.

In carrying out the eviction the enforcement team were met with barricaded doors and a very entrenched group of squatters. This is a side effect of delays in the Court. The delay allows the trespassers to create obstacles and booby traps to prevent the eviction. It leads to several health and safety risks which the enforcement agents have to deal with.

Efficient processing of the judgment leads to swift eviction against people who shouldn’t be there in the first place.
