Sheffield City Council v Hopkins - Supreme Court


This case allows for landlords to rely on new grounds to enforce a Possession Order rather than having to issue new proceedings. This might arise where a Suspended Possession Order has been obtained because of rent arrears but then the landlord wants to recover possession due to anti social behaviour. The landlord can apply to the Court for permission to enforce the Order on the new grounds. The Court will only summarily assess the claim rather than consider it in detail at a trial as would be the case with a new defended claim for possession.
