Thank you for your question.
A possession order is where a landlord seeks return of a property from a tenant. A repossession order is where a lender takes a property from an owner for non payment of mortgage.
I hope this helps.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.

Possession Proceedings are the Court process by which a landlord or a lender or an owner can "repossess" a property.
The terms Possession Order or Repossession Order are used interchangeably these days - technically erroneously but it is a long time since they have been correctly used
