I've been to Court today with my brother, a vicar, who is ill and needs his house back so he can retire.
Because the Possession forms were signed by me and not my brother as he was in hospital at the time after a stroke, the judge would not allow Possession to take place and we now have to wait another 6 weeks for a further hearing having submitted another Possession claim.
The tenants haven't paid a penny of rent since December, are now over 4,000 in arrears and had a legal tenancy agreement that they have broken in a number of issues and yet we STILL cannot get back what is rightfully ours ? Why is this allowed by the Courts ? Why are tenants allowed to break every rule in the book (or the agreement) and STILL the Court sides with the tenants who live Scott free off our backs on social, Housing benefits and with access to free legal advice. We have broken nothing - we gave them a brand new house to live in and they , in return have taken the Michael out of us. The Court system needs an almighty kick up it's tight backside and Shorthold Tenancy Agreements are not worth the paper upon which they are written !

Beware Agents and 3rd Parties - you cannot sign on behalf of a Landlord either the Possession documents and the Section 21 Orders in the Scarborough Area .
