We were granted a possession order by a judge who has given the tenant the usual 14 days to leave. I understand that if she doesn't leave, we have to go back to court to instruct the bailiffs (at further cost to us) who may then take 3 weeks or so to actually go to the premises to get the tenant out.
Is there anything to prevent us from going down to the property with a locksmith the day after the 14 days has expired, waiting until the tenant leaves the house (to go shopping etc!!) and then having the locks changed so she can't get back in again? After all, surely the judge decided that after the 14 days have expired the property becomes ours again so we can do what we like with it, including changing locks.
