What is a Suspended Possession Order?

A Suspended Possession Order is an order for repossession of your home that has been granted by a County Court but where the judge has decided to give the homeowner time to rectify the situation, either by agreeing a repayment agreement or allowing time to sell the property, or any other mitigating circumstance.

A suspended possession order can be re-instated at any time if the Court feels that you have not kept to an agreement or arrangement. If the possession order is reinstated the lender will then apply for a bailiffs possession warrant.

Provided you attend the first court hearing you can ask for the judge to suspend any order.

What does a Suspended Possession Order Mean?

  • A suspended possession order gives you time to complete your agreement with the Court
  • If you don’t keep to the agreement your lender will apply for the Possession Order to stand
  • If the judge agrees, your lender can apply for a bailiffs possession warrant
  • If you complete your agreement with the Court then you can apply for the Possession Order to be scrapped

What Are My Options?

Keep to any agreement that you make with the Court, whether it is for payment of arrears, or for more time to sell your property. If you face further difficulties make sure that you inform your lender and the Court.
