Accerated possession procedure
We have issued a section 21 notice to a tenant to terminate their tenancy , the tenant did not leave on the 07/05/07. We proceeded with the accerated procedure , the tenant filed the defence form requesting to stay to the end of June, the judge awarded us possession for the 28/06/07, the tenant did not leave. We filed a warrant for possession of land 04/07/07 however unbeknown to us and despite our contact with the court , the tenant made an application to suspend the eviction, on the 27/06/07. We now have a hearing on the 01/08/07.
My questions are how is it that the tenant can continually suspend the eviction if it is a 'accerateed procedure' ? After this hearing can they suspend the eviction a second, third, fourth, fifth time?
What is the maximum amount of time a judge can award to the tenants at this hearing?
