Warrant on Suspended order – What do you think?

Following the judgment in Cardiff City Council v Lee (2016) EWCA Civ 1034 (our report) and the subsequent appearance of new forms, at least for rent arrears suspended possession order cases, the Civil Procedure Rules Committee is having a consultation on “whether amendments are required to rules and forms in light of the Court of Appeal judgment in Cardiff City Council v Lee (Flowers) (2016) EWCA Civ 1034.”

The consultation documents are here. The closing date is 30 August 2017. It is worth noting that the consultation extends beyond warrants onto writs and, to some extent, high court writs and warrants. This is not just an issue of evidencing breach of a suspended possession order.

I am fairly confident there will be a range of views…
