I feel as though the courts have held my claim up with delays all the way through this process. It was the 18th December when I first sent all the court papers asking for re-possession. Then only by speaking to the Courts direct did I gained a court hearing on the 1st Feb 07 (otherwise it was going to be the end of March) and was granted re-possession, since then (through Lies and more lies) the Tenant is STILL residing in the property and after filing a form for the bailiff I have had to wait approx 10 weeks since the possession order was granted in court. I find this totally unnacceptable. It is the Courts who have delayed this and actually cost me more money by holding up this matter. Can I claim COMPENSATION for this hold up from the Court's?? I feel as though this is wrong, I am really struggling to pay the mortgage now after 9 months of this and the only person who is winning is THE BLOODY TENANT!! Also bearing in mind the Court Costs of £249, when in fact it is the courts which have in fact lost me 3 and a half months rental!
Also, I have been told that I can re-instate the money claim which I had already filed in the court papers in December. I have been told that I need to complete a form N244, although I cannot find it on the RLA website. Do you have it? or is there another way or form I can file for this claim. I need to do this very quickly now as I have been told the bailiffs have now been instructed to go on the 17th April 07. I would appreciate a speedy response.
