D Council v C

This case related to a Possession order that had been made following the tenant’s criminal conviction. We were instructed once the tenant had received a date for the bailiffs to attend (a warrant of possession).

We assisted the tenant in successfully setting aside the warrant of possession. The Council appealed against this order.

The appeal was allowed in part by the Circuit Judge, who remitted the case back to a different District Judge to be considered afresh. At the next hearing, the warrant was once more set aside, which was a successful outcome for the tenant.
