High Court Writs/Quicker Enforcement   
  
As a residential landlord wishing to repossess your property, your first step is to get an order for possession. The after this normally the eviction would be executed by a County Court Bailiff, but depending on the court there can be long delays due to their high workload.
 
Rather than waiting, you can apply to the County Court that issued your possession order to transfer it to the High Court for enforcement. Once the transfer application is granted, you can use High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEO) to evict your tenants, usually within 7 days, but is possible to be done quicker.
 
It is at the courts discretion whether or not to allow the transfer, but we are seeing this being granted more often than not at the moment especially if you have a rent arrears money order attached to the possession order.
 
If the court that granted the possession order is a combined court then the process is much quicker, if however it is not then first permission needs to be granted for the transfer to the high court and then it needs to be sent to a high court for the correct paperwork to be issued for the HCEO to enforce it. It is still much quicker than the county court bailiff process though.
