Some Help re: possession order by bailiffs

Recommended Posts

First time poster and I've searched but I didnt find an answer. 

 

My story as it stands, I ran into an issue with income in August. This meant I couldn't pay my rent in September and october. 

 

LL (well agent, let alliance rent guarantee cover they had) served a section 8.

Upon expiry, they set a court date.

This was done incredibly quick, I mean extremely quick, probably within 10 days or so of the expiry there was a court date set. 

 

Before court, I offered a payment plan, very reasonable one.

At this point I owed 3 months rent @ £650 PM.

I offered to have it cleared before christmas (this was in November) in chunks by certain dates, not just "I'll be up to date by xmas". 

They declined the offer and said they're seeking repossession.

 

I attended court, judge said no discretion to force acceptance of offer and granted an outright possession for first week in december. 

 

I continued to offer my amounts and filed for appeal and lost again.

Now this appeal was on the day of due eviction (6th Jan).

I was told as the eviction was due that day that it's going to be the next day (told my enforcement not judge) 

 

But I still asked for clarification and couldn't get any. 

 

When I returned back home after pleading with everyone to take my offer instead.

I found an employee of the LL and a guy marked as maintenance (not bailiff) inside the house

 

Now I've been staying at my mums with 3 children and I'm collecting by belongings tomorrow but my question is this. 

 

The LL employee and maintenance inside the house after the possession warrant expired but the bailiff not in attendance.

Did they breach any laws,

do I have a right to appeal what's happened now?

I took what I needed and left but they had already let themselves before the bailiff arrived. 

 

I know I'm fighting a losing battle here but they've been very unreasonable and kept leaning on the rent guarantee insurance and their providers way of dealing with it is to always seek possession and call it a loss. 

 

I'm just hoping they've breached something and I can go back to court with a different arguement as finding a home is difficult, nothing a available, council have put me on the lowest band due to rent arrears so the wait could be a very very long time. 

 

Any constructive advice is appreciated, I know I've messed up with the rent so please dont just tell me that.
