Emma, a debt advisor, spent the day at a County Court hearing centre to better understand the eviction hearing process. She’s written this article to share what happens during an eviction hearing and what she learnt from the day.
As a debt advisor, I regularly speak to clients who are in rent or mortgage arrears and are concerned about eviction. It’s part of my job to understand the County Court eviction process, explain to clients what to expect at their hearing and how to prepare for it.
However, being fortunate enough to have never been in that situation myself, one thing I can’t talk the client through is how they’ll feel on the day.
So to find out more, I visited a County Court hearing centre to help me to understand more about the process from a client’s perspective.
