Summons For Possession

  • A county court document in prescribed form issued to a tenant who is in some way in default in order to regain possession of a property.  This will require a set of preliminary documents including a Notice to quit a court fee of about £150 recoverable from the defaulting tenant.  If the tenant fails to leave then a court bailiff can be instructed to effect eviction.  If there are rent arrears this may require a separate money claim depending on the nature of the claim.
