Term Definition
Accelerated Possession Procedure
A way for landlords to gain possession of their property, that is straightforward and cheap, without a court hearing. The court makes its decision based solely on documents provided by the landlord and tenant, but can decide a hearing is necessary. This procedure can only be used where there is a written tenancy agreement and the tenant has been given notice. The procedure cannot be used to claim for arrears of rent.
