Possession claim notice: effect of the coronavirus pandemic on the tenant

When making a possession claim in England or Wales, new rules require you to tell the court what you know about how the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected the tenants and their dependants. You can do that with this document.

You'll need to use it in 2 situations:

1. When starting a new accelerated possession procedure (i.e. section 21) claim on or after 3 August 2020, sending it with claim form N5B; or

2. At any possession hearing (i.e. under the section 8 or section 21 procedure) for claims that were made on or after 3 August 2020. You must bring 2 copies to the hearing and give a copy to the tenants at least 14 days before it.

This notice is required even if you don't know what effect the pandemic has had on the tenants.
Compatible region(s): England & Wales
