Hi

I have had to resort to legal means to evict a tenant and since submitting a N5b I have received a Notice of Issue (possession claim) from the court. I was going to attend the hearing but unfortunately personal circumstances mean I can no longer attend on that day.

From my research on the internet I am unclear as to whether I actually need to attend in any case. Could you confirm please?

Second questions is the tenants have not submitted any defence to my claim and I believe that if they do not do so within 14 days there is another form I can submit to the court to help regain possession? Again internet research has proven confusing as to whether I have understood correctly so could you give me some guidance?

Thanks
