Although this thread is not directly 'bailiff' related, I am aware that the subject matter is of interest to some of the regular posters on the forum.

 

In 2012 the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) issued the following guidance. Today the guidance has been updated to include a new section entitled:

 

Seeking possession under Section 21.

Maybe this could be put in the housing section where posters will normally go regarding this type of issue..

 

As you say it's not a bailiff problem..

I have been going through this process myself, i have a thread on here, it is nightmare. Not been on this side of taking repossession before, usually i am trying to stop people being re possessed it certainly is an eye opener.

 

I have had properties with tenants before but always managed to reach some kind of arrangement if there was payment problems. i do not know what went wrong on this occaision, before i used to manage the properties myself, but with my illness etc. this one has been handled by an agent since 2013.

 

I can't help but think that if I had managed the account it would not have come to this, however they are four months in arrears now and have stopped paying altogether, they both are in full time jobs , have a nice car etc. i really feel like they are taking the mick.

 

I am now looking at enforcment(if i get the order from the court next week,), so this may be of interest on here. If only to see matters from the other point of view. I am hoping to get a repossession order next week and have been looking at the options.

 

Many on here(including me) have recommended the high court in these cases however being in that position myself and looking at the costs and time frames involved I'm unsure if it as easy or as efficient as I once thought. Costing the whole process it looks like it is going to cost me in the region of £4k having spent some £300 so the application. There is loss of rental income which will be about 3k then there's the cost of refurbishment after they go etc, nightmare.

 

I contacted a local high court enforcement officer who sent me their price list, £485 +Vat for the first hour then 195 every hour after that. then there are applications to vary the judgment to high court , transfer up fees etc. The county court route is looking very attractive at the moment.


DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES TO COLD CALLERS PROMISING TO WRITE OFF YOUR DEBTS

DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES FOR COSTLY TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS WITH SO CALLED "EXPERTS" THEY INVARIABLY ARE NOTHING OF THE SORT

BEWARE OF QUICK FIX DEBT SOLUTIONS, IF IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT INVARIABLY IS

The reasoning for my post is only one poster us currently looking at thus subject and that is DB with more posters and readers in the relevant area of CAG they may not come here until after enforcement has started. It may have more views and comments there...
