We’ve come up with a new paragraph for the legal warning that will hopefully stop some without notice evictions, especially when the bailiffs are trying to re-use an old warrant.
If you include an email (that you check regularly) you should get informed of any communication with the court, and so be able to respond
The extra para would read “THAT pursuant to CPR 39.8, any communication to the Court, including any with or without notice application, must be immediately copied to all parties. Failure to comply with this rule may lead to the court imposing sanctions and may be a breach of professional conduct. We request that any application or correspondence to the Court concerning our occupation of this property be copied by email to “
Under new rules, if you have ever had a licence to be where you are you must get notice of eviction, even if it’s the High Court cowboys that do it. We’re still working out the practicalities of making use of this, but let us know your experiences, and if you’re in court and the other side haven’t mentioned your licence make sure you put it in your defence, even if it’s not going to help otherwise
