Possession claim reactivation notice

About this service

On 21 September 2020, courts in England and Wales began processing possession claims again. If you've made a claim before 3 August 2020 that was then stayed (paused) by a court due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will not re-start until you send the court (and tenants) a reactivation notice. You can do that with this document.

Use it if, before 3 August 2020, you sent the court and tenants:
  • Forms N5 and N119 (a section 8 possession claim); or
  • Form N5B (a section 21 possession claim).

It's not required if:

  • You've received a final possession order from the court;
  • Your claim was started on or after 3 August 2020 and then stayed by the court;
  • The court has told you it's not needed.

You may need to send other documents with the reactivation notice. We've therefore designed the document questionnaire to work out if this applies to your circumstances, and provided information and instructions on what other documents you'll need and how to create them.

This product is suitable for use in: England & Wales
