Help, landlord repossession court hearing tomorrow, I've just found out.

Recommended Posts

Thanks.

 

I have no idea as I've not had sight of the court papers, this is just what I was told over the phone.

 

I will advise when I get them. Could you confirm if I can make the equivalent of a Statatory declaration? As I had no knowledge of this until 3pm the day before with no chance of getting back.

 

Also can I put in a complaint about the judges decision, it's evident that he has not followed the guidelines?

Good morning.

 

Is it possible for someone to please advise on the following?

 

Can I make a Statatory declaration to the court as I had no knowledge of this case?

 

Is it possible to complain against the ruling of a District Judge if I feel his decision did not follow the correct protocol?

 

Thank you

Hi, I know it's Sunday and you are volunteers but if someone could bump this if possible please?

 

I'm wanting to get a rough idea regards my last post.

 

Thanks again.

To be honest I doubt your complaint about the judge would get very far,  they must hear lots of people saying they didn't get the paperwork and it could take weeks for your complaint to be dealt with - did the court papers arrive in the post or was it hand delivered ?Is the tenacy only in your name ?

I don't think the stat declaration would help either - you would need to have it sworn in front of a solicitor or court officer and then make an application for a hearing to have a judge make a decision to have another hearing - so there would be a cost for the SD and the hearing too - and given the short time you have before the eviction date you might struggle to get it all done.

I still think your best bet is  to make an application for a hearing straight away to get more time and put your deposit case and lack of knowledge of the court papers before the judge.  

However, it's your decision.

Thanks for that.

 

So there's no recourse if the documents are intercepted by a third party and hidden? That's comforting.

 

Is what it is, I suppose.

If you apply for a hearing you will have the opportunity to bring that to the judge's attention along with your other issues

Morning.

 

If it costs 250, then no. I don't get paid until the 28th.

The 28th is Sunday so you should get paid on Friday - would you be able to take it in then?

Ah, some good news!! 

 

Yes, I hadn't thought of that. Yes I will, I don't know how to get past the mandatory "I want to move back into my home" it's an obvious lie, but there's no way I can prove it.

Hi,  I'm just starting to draft a statement for your application but need some information:

 

Have you seen the court papers that were hidden from you ?  

Are you able to download and print off the texts you got from the landlord regarding non protection of your deposit ?

Is the tenancy only in your name or joint names?

If we can get the eviction suspended are you able to pay rent while you look for another property?

Have you actually received the court order yet?

Hi

 

Thanks dor taking the time to do this, especially in the day.

 

It turns out that I was given the completely wrong information, it as been re-listed for the 8th of Aug. 

 

I have no idea what is going on or how they can make this level of mistake.

OK,  that gives us plenty of time to get the defence in.  Have you got the original court papers?  

How have they communicated the new date to you ?
