Welcome to Just Answer, I am a practicing solicitor in England and Wales and I will be dealing with your case today.
Kindly note, I am not available for phone calls at the moment, however I can easily assist you via this online chat.
Could you please confirm when section 21 eviction notice has been served?
You need 6 months notice period for evicting , due to COVID 19 regulations.
If at the expiry of the notice period, you do not evict, then tenancy would roll into periodic monthly tenancy, and Landlord would have to apply to the court for possession orders.
Due to backlog of cases, your Landlord's case would be back in the queue.
Your credit report would get effected if Landlord gets a CCJ against you.
CCJ will reflect into your credit file for a period of 6 years.
If you comply within 28 days , then it would not be recorded in your personal files.
As you still have month or more in your notice to end, You can stay put.
and can negotiate with your Landlord to extend the tenancy on rolling basis till you get any other space.
It would be win -win for both of you, as explained above, Landlord would not have to apply and wait for possession orders.
Landlord can initiate possession proceedings within 6 months of the expiry date of the notice period.
If you have reasonable excuse, and affected by COVID 19, then these factors will be taken into account by the court before making possession orders in the favour of the Landlord.
