At the current time, outstanding Warrants or Writs of Possession can only be enforced in England if the court is satisfied they relate to an order for possession within one of the exemptions in Regulation 2 of the Public Health (Coronavirus) (Protection from Eviction and Taking Control of Goods) (England) Regulations 2021 or in Wales if the court is satisfied they relate to an order for possession within one of the exemptions in Regulation 2 of The Public Health (Protection from Eviction) (Wales) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2021.
These conditions remain in place until 21 February 2021 and will be reviewed after that date.
The advantage of transferring to the High Court is that there are no backlogs and eviction dates can be booked to suit your timetable.
Our service will help you make an application to a District Judge for permission to transfer your County Court Order for Possession to the High Court. It is unfortunately not a guaranteed outcome, but we find that for some landlords and claimants in our community, that is a step they are prepared to take to see if they can avoid the delays in the county court system.
An application is made to the Court where you obtained your Order. We will provide an application drafted by our sister company, Shergroup Legal, together with a supporting Witness Statement setting out how you have been adversely impacted by the COVID crisis. We will then file the documents at the Court. We will manage the hearing, and organise representation for you.
The all-inclusive charge for this service is £999 including VAT and all court fees and other disbursements.
