Eviction Notice

The Eviction Notice is an official notice from the Court forewarning you of the time and date that you will be evicted from your home by a County Court Bailiff. An Eviction Notice will be issued if you have failed to maintain a previous court order, or your lender is not satisfied that you are clearing your arrears sufficiently.

When we achieve the Court Order that stops your eviction there will be nothing your Lender can do to remove you from your home, on the condition you keep to the Court Order that we secured for you.

Stopping Eviction

How Do I Stop the Eviction Process?

1. ) Understand the Gravity of the Situation

Before you receive an Eviction Notice, your lender or their solicitors will have informed you that they are applying for eviction. When it arrives, you will typically only get 2 weeks’ notice. Claiming that you did not receive the Eviction Notice is pointless. If the 2-week period passes and you have not acted in any way, you will be made homeless.

2. ) Act Quickly

It is always best to seek expert advice in these circumstances. If you choose to contact HMS, we will first attempt to negotiate with your lender to see if we can reach an agreement. If this does not work out, we will swiftly take legal action via the N244 form. We know the eviction process inside out, so you will be in very safe hands.

3. ) The N244 Form

We use the N244 Form to secure an emergency Court Hearing regarding your Eviction Notice and get your case in front of a judge. We will help you fill out this crucial legal document correctly and may even appoint a solicitor to attend court with you. We will take whatever action is necessary to ensure that you achieve a court order that stops your eviction.

What an Eviction Notice Means

If you do not take action through the proper channels, the Eviction Notice will be carried out and your locks will be changed and you and any other occupiers will be homeless. A common mistake many Homeowners make is to trust in the sympathy of the legal system, however, you will receive no sympathy. If you have nowhere to go, if you are elderly, disabled or have young children the Court Order will still stand and you will be evicted. You cannot afford to rely on your personal or family circumstances to stop your eviction, it typically does not work and it says so on the Eviction Notice itself.

In order to prevent and stop the eviction you need proper Legal Advice, to create a structured and Legally founded Defence in accordance with your circumstances that the Court can actually support and the Judge can, therefore, base an actual Court Order on. HMS will achieve the right defence.

How We Can Help Stop Eviction

We can give you advice tailored to your specific case and circumstances about how to proceed. Our first aim will be to reach an agreement with your Lender, either by advising you on what to say before you contact them or by interceding on your behalf. The procedure here often depends on the Lender and the urgency of your case.

If the Lender is not open to any proposals at this point we will promptly turn to Legal action, and complete an N244 Application Notice for you to secure an emergency Court Hearing regarding your Eviction Notice. Our job will be to achieve a Court Order that stops the eviction. The level of defence depends on the history and complexity of your case and ranges from only requiring telephone advice, to appointing a Solicitor to attend Court with you.

How to Stop Repossession

Make sure you talk to your lender

1. Don’t take emergency finance

Other companies may have misled you into believing that a bridging loan or short-term finance is your best or even only choice. That’s not true. The temporary relief will be short-lived when you are facing repossession for a much higher sum.

Try not panic and stay calm

2. Don’t accept a quick sale

In desperate situations, you may be tempted to accept a below-market-value “instant cash” offer on your home. Avoid quick sale companies at all costs—they profit from your misfortune. We can provide better options.

 Review household expenditure

3. Get us to help

We can help you navigate through your options. We will force your lender to give you time to make a decision that suits you. Our first step is to assess affordability for you to keep the property long-term. If this is not an option, then we will ensure you speak to regulated finance professionals or have time to sell your property on the open market.
