Your Appointment With The Bailiffs
In almost all cases, tenants might be notified in regards to the time and date when the bailiffs will come to the property. This notice will normally arrive by postal mail several days in advance, prior to the scheduled day of the eviction. Usually you will be given at least some days notice and they usually ask whether you have any unusual situation that may call for particular assistance.
Can The Eviction Still Be Prevented?
Once the eviction process has progressed this much, it can be very difficult to stop the eviction from being pushed through. There is only one way to be able to stop the eviction procedure, this is if there is vital evidence that the eviction will result in severe hardship. In order to do this you will have to have submitted a special form and go to a court hearing, during which the court will decide whether your circumstances truly merit the eviction either getting delayed or stopped entirely.
The Eviction Day
If you are unable to prevent the eviction you have got to be prepared for what will occur on the day. After they made sure that you are taken from the property, the bailiffs will secure it by putting in place new locks. In order for the bailiffs to be able to hand possession back over to the landlord, they need to either be present themselves or an associate of theirs will have to be present at the eviction. If you attempt to fight the eviction in any way, the bailiffs are quite within their rights to contact the police and if you put up physical resistance there is also a likelihood you may be detained.
Will They Handle My Belongings?
The bailiffs role will be to monitor the procedure, taking care of belongings will be the tenant's duty. If you do not undertake this task yourself, the owner could possibly make sure they can be removed from the residence. So as for them to handle a tenant's belongings it will require the right court order.
Tenant's Legal Rights
Bailiffs would be required to carry out the eviction in a proper and professional fashion. Having said that, when they break codes of conduct, you can take the matter further, first with their office and if you won't accomplish anything there the issue may be taken up to a judge. Threats, physical violence and destruction of a tenant's valuables would be illustrations of such unacceptable conduct. Want more on this? Visit the OnLet Site
