I live in the property with my wife and three children. It was given to me by my employer as accommodation, which is part of my remuneration package. My employer rented the property through an agency.
I've just received the copy of the order for possession (by email today) issued on the 14th of April 2015 addressing my employer as the defendant. The employer is ordered to vacate the property by 21 April, which was yesterday. The email also says that a High Court Enforcement Officer has been appointed today as the property has not been vacated.
The employer was responsible for paying the rent.
I didn't know about the possession order before today.
I went to the court this morning to make an application to delay eviction. The court clerk told me that I couldn't make the application as there was no eviction date yet!! They can't delay the eviction on just an Order for Possession. Please comment.
Yes I did make an application yesterday. The court clerk advised me that I would receive a letter from the court about the judge's decision in about a week. I'm not sure what will happen now. Please advise what should I do in the meantime?
I've been told by a couple of people (legally trained but not solicitors) that since my family and I are not the tenants (the tenancy is in my employer's name), we are not a party to this matter, and therefore the judge has no option but to refuse my application. Is that correct?
Made the application last week. The hearing was this morning. The landlord didn't follow the correct procedure so the judge dismissed the case. What does this mean for us?
