Dear all,

I was made redundant from my job in July. I was also quite seriously injured four days after being made redundant. As such, it has prevented me from returing to work swiftly. I have been served a s21 notice to vacate at the end of September. It has been correctly served.


My question is: if I do not move out on the stipulated date what is the likely course of action (e.g. court action, eviction & financial costs to me) that will follow and over what timeframe? If I was to stay beyond my tenancy I would of course continue to pay rent as normal for any additional time that I am living in the property - I am only considering staying because I have nowhere else to go and was hoping to try and buy more time until I could recieve an offer of social housing. As I am not working I cannot simply move into another private rented property. Does anyone have any experience on this and could anyone offer any advice?

Following the expiry of the notice, the landlord does the following:


- Goes to court to obtain a possession order

- If you do not vacate after this, landlord then gets court baliffs to physically evict.


You are liable for ALL financial costs of eviction following the expiry of the notice. This will include, but not be limited to, court costs and baliff costs. You will probably be looking at a few hundred quid.
