Have been awarded possession order 16th March. T told they must move out by 30th March. What is the correct (legal) procedure if T still not left property by said date? When/how can I use court bailiff and what are the costs? Also have been awarded decision on arrears (£2500) - what is the best way to action (MCOL?)?

Have been awarded possession order 16th March. T told they must move out by 30th March. What is the correct (legal) procedure if T still not left property by said date? When/how can I use court bailiff and what are the costs?If the Court has ordered possession on 30/03/2010, and the T has not vacated the property by this date, then on or after 31/03/2010, you will need to apply for a warrant for possession of land (Form N325 (http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/HMCSCourtFinder/GetForm.do?court_forms_id=562)). I think the fee is approx. £150; call your local County Court to confirm this.


Also have been awarded decision on arrears (£2500) - what is the best way to action (MCOL?)?If you have a judgement against the T, then whether you wish to enforce the judgement (http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/infoabout/enforcement/index.htm) may depend on if the T has assets or is employed.
