New streamlined procedures that make it simpler for property owners to make use of a High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO) to evict household lessees came into force on 23rd August 2020.
Writs of belongings
We’ve been seeing writs of possession being given within 48 hours of application.
This can be of big advantage to domestic landlords. The timescale of 48 hours for the lawful processing of the documents can imply that vacant belongings can be given within two weeks.
Area Court sheriffs
These timescales remain in stark comparison with the area court sheriffs, the current data released by the Ministry of Justice are as complies with:
Claim to buy 11.5 weeks
Insurance claim to warrant 38.1 weeks
Case to belongings 41.5 weeks
