Here is a question to the blog clinic from Hayley who is a tenant
I have been issued a section 21 and have to be out by 30th June.
Local housing have told me not to move out on that date and wait for my landlord to go to court for and eviction order. Will I have to pay the court cost for them to do this as I am am also spliting up from my husband and have three children
If you want to be re-housed by the local authority it is ESSENTIAL that you do not move out. Otherwise you will lose your right to be re-housed.
There will often be a costs order made in possession proceedings, it is generally either £175 if the landlord is acting in person or £244.50 if they use solicitors. You can ask the court to make an instalment order.
