Can’t Pay? They Can’t Stay.

You may be a landlord, an agent, or an advisor – but the one thing you have in common is you need to get your property back if your tenant defaults on the rent. It’s a common scenario of “Can’t Pay/Can’t Stay” with over 100,000 Possession Orders being issued in England and Wales every year.

Getting a Possession Order and being able to enforce it can take weeks.

Based on the insight shared with us by our community, we know many landlords process their claims for possession using the Government service of “Possession Claims Online” or PCOL for short.

In a way PCOL makes it much easier to start a claim for possession, and if you are a PCOL user we would love to hear your feedback on the system and how it works for you.

Once you have an Order for Possession, you will either see your tenant leave the property voluntarily, or if not, you will have to take steps to enforce the terms of the Possession Order.

This is where the automated PCOL system may stop short in helping you.  Enforcement of the court’s order is not automated, and we hear from many landlords, that they are waiting months to see county court bailiffs carry out the eviction.

A landlord can lose hundreds, if not thousands of pounds, waiting for an eviction date.

This is where Shergroup can really help our landlords!

The solution lies in asking the court for permission to enforce the Possession Order in the HIgh Court, when the claim is being prepared.

This then gives the District Judge the opportunity to exercise a discretion to grant permission. When this is done the landlord has the option to use the county court, or transfer to the High Court, if that makes commercial sense.

We count eviction times in days NOT months.
