Repossession of home - amount of time to vacate

(2 Posts)

My home is going to be repossessed. I have to go to court on Tuesday. I am not going to contest it as I have no assets and currently no income.

Has anyone else been through this process?

I understand that the usual amount of time given by the court to vacate the property is usually 28 days. However, several sites say that this can be 56 days. However, I can't find any information regarding under what circumstances a longer period might be granted. Does anyone know?

It would be very handy to have a longer period to get everything sorted but I am not sure how best to go about asking for it.

There's often a duty solicitor there to give you a bit of advice. In court you can talk to the judge, it's just a man or woman in a suit sitting at a desk & they're usually reasonable so long as you are too grin I don't know whether the judge can give an extended time but there's no harm in you asking.
