We issued a Section 8 and got possession through the court. The tenant hasn't left, and the bailiff is due next week.

I issued a claim through the MCOL, which has already been issued, although not yet deemed to be served. I did this as it was a much quicker option, rather than using the local court, as it was served at the property he is supposed to be vacating.

My husband says that I shouldn't have done this as under the Section 8 we'd already got a judgement for the monies due, and I've now slowed the process down, as we could have gone to the local court for an Attachment of Earnings straight away?

Who is right, and where should we go from here?

Thanks for all your helpful advise on this forum.
