Member's Question - We carried out an inventory on behalf of a landlord prior to a new tenant moving in. On the inventory, it was specified that there was a fridge freezer but that it didn't work. The new tenants then received the keys a few days before the official start date of the tenancy to start moving furniture in etc. Two days before the tenancy start date, the landlord personally went to the property to remove the appliance but was unable to and so she left it.
Immigration Act revised 2016 should a landlord or letting agent fail to ensure ALL tenants/occupiers have a righto reside for the duration of the tenancy then they may be fined £3000 for each breach. The Secretary of State may instruct the landlord to remove such persons without the need of a court order by way of reasonable force

Under section 42 of the County Courts Act 1984 it is possible for the Court to transfer a matter from the County Court to the High Court for enforcement but leave (permission) of the Court is required first. The transfer time varies from court to court and can take up to 28 days, but normally takes far less. An application to seek permission can be made either at the time of making the possession claim or after possession has been ordered.
