Hi thanks for your question. My name isXXXXX can answer your question.
The Court considers whether to grant the order at the first hearing when the possession order is made. If the court has already made this (as I think it has from what's in your question), then it will not again consider whether it should have made the possession order. It will, however, consider whether it should suspend the warranty for possession based on factors like your children, and whether more time is needed to enable you to make provisions to move. It might also agree to suspend it if you can show that you can pay the arrears off.
The court, by granting the order though, has presumably concluded at the point of making that order, that there were arrears? Is that not correct?
Okay, this is my point, because once the court has decided, that's it. You can't go back on the judgment except by an appeal.
You can apply for the warrant to be suspended though, but realistically, you're going to have to make proposals to pay off the arrears in order to stand any chance of succeeding.
If there were arrears ... that is.
Past rent that is due is arrears. If you have arrears, then you need to propose how to pay them off.
Then the court might agree to stay the warrant of possession.
Okay, so what question can I specifically answer for you now?
