I’m unclear on the difference in timescale of these two options. Assuming the tenant defends the notice and claims hardship due to family of four children and supposed pregnant wife, is there actually any difference. Is that kind of hardship claim going to stand up and should I mention over two months rent arrears although I would rather gain possession than worry about rent arrears. Thanks for any help.
If you just want possession without rent arrears, then accelerated is the way forward. it’s usually possession without hearing. I say usually but if the tenant files defence, then there will be a hearing.
