If in a situation where a judge issued a repossession order

Customer Question

If in a situation where a judge issued a repossession order for the tenant (me) to leave on a private dwelling by 19th February 2016, but the landlord on their discretion allowed me to stay a further week, but still in the property. If now a warrant of possession is issued where it is assigned that bailiffs will enter the property on 12th April and in the last couple of months i did not pay the rent then can the landlord claim the two months outstanding rent post possession order of 19th Feb?

Did the judge allow occupation rent please?

what is occupational rent?It is simple a repossession order for eviction, which later resulted to a warrant of procession.

Yes you owe rent right up until you leave. The day you leave is the day you stop paying rent, regardless of whether the deadline for the possession order has passed.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
