Evictions - enforcement of possession orders
What is an eviction?
An eviction is the recovery of occupied property or land under a writ of possession. This type of writ is normally based upon a County Court Judgment but can also be a High Court order.
It can be obtained for many different reasons, for example, to remove squatters in a building, travellers on an open site, tenants who have failed to pay rent or where bankruptcy leads to a loss of a home.
When dealing with squatters the claimant has an automatic right of transfer using the standard transfer up process, but when dealing with non-squatters, such as a tenant for whom an order has been obtained, leave of the court is needed for the transfer by making application under Section 42 of the County Courts Act 1984.
Once the order is obtained this can be transferred to the High Court for enforcement by the High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO).
