Landlords or letting agents can use a fast track (also known as an accelerated) eviction to get possession of the property. This process enables landlord to avoid a typical court hearing.

If a judge decides to issue a possession order, a tenant will typically have 14 to 28 days to leave the property under this process. A judge can award up to 42 days but only in exceptional circumstances.

If a tenant refuses to leave the property after this period, bailiffs can be used.
