Reactivating possession proceedings: Template forms
Courts will begin to hear possession cases again from the 24th August, following a five month ban on evictions.

In preparation for the courts reopening in the next few weeks, a new Practice Direction (55C) comes into force from 23 August 2020, covering both the possession cases that could not continue during this time and new possession claims started on or after 3 August 2020.
