View Full Version : Sect 21 issued. Next step ?

So, basically sect 21 served on my tenant. If he does not leave I apply to courts for possession order. Ok I understand that..but have had 2 conflicting pieces of info / advice re next step...
One tells me there HAS to be a court hearing...second one says there DOESN'T necessarily need to be a court hearing, I could be granted possession without hearing !! Who's right ?
Secondly, once I get a possession order I can go round and evict the tenant myself ( with help ) as second one says I HAVE to get court bailiffs to evict tenant (and wait another 4,5,6 weeks or whatever.) Again..who's right ?

you have a court hearing but if the tenant does not turn up they just check your paperwork and give you possession order. then you have to wait for a baliff im afraid.
