We have now had the Order for possession from the Judge, she has to move out on Friday 27th!

FOUR QUESTIONS PLEASE?

I delivered a letter through her door yesterday, saying that we wanted to do an inspection visit on Monday at 11.00am. Can I do this?

If she doesn't move out on Friday (which she won't), can I go to the Court and ask for balliffs to enforce? About how long will this take?

Can I do anything before hand to speed the process?

She owes 1475 in rent, court fees so far of 219 + balliffs charges if needed. I have her deposit of 495. She is pregnant, due in August and married to an Albanian (joint tenancy). Would the advise be to leave all this until she gets settled elsewhere (say 1 or 2 years) or to get an order for payment now. She will be on benefit at the moment, but I thought once the baby is settled I might have a better chance.

I have a guarantor form (RLA one) and spoke to the guarantor, but he does not think he is responsible (also Eastern European), am I best chasing him first, or sue the tenants first?

Many Thanks (nearing the end of a long road - hopefully)
