The Law Commission published its report on Technical Issues in Charity Law in September 2017 following a public consultation.
This article is further to our previous e-briefing (published on 22 July 2020) where we informed you that there are new temporary measures (a new Practice Direction PD55c) that have been brought in to deal with possession claims, following the stay being lifted on possession claims on 22 August 2020.
You as the Claimant landlord will be responsible for reactivating any dormant cases that you have in Court; specifically, those that were stayed and issued prior to 3 August 2020. In order to get any of the stayed possession claims listed, re-listed, heard or referred to a Judge, you will have to serve on the Defendant a written notice and file with the Court the same notice requesting that the claim is listed, re-listed, heard or referred to a Judge. This is what is referred to as a “Reactivation Notice”.
We are pleased to advise that we have drafted a Reactivation Notice which is available upon request. Please contact Ingrid Brown, Secretarial Coordinator, for a copy of that notice via email or phone (0121 214 3620).
For more information
If you require further guidance and information regarding the notice, then please contact Baljit Basra or any of the Housing Litigation Team on 0121 212 7400.
