Enforcement of orders for possession

121 Enforcement of orders for possession

(1) The principal registrar of the Tribunal may, on the application of a person in whose favour an order for possession was made, issue a warrant for possession of the residential premises concerned if the principal registrar is satisfied that the order or a condition of suspension of the order has not been complied with.
(2) An application for a warrant for possession may be made immediately, if the order for possession so provides, or not more than 30 days after the date by which vacant possession was required or within such further period as the Tribunal may permit.
(3) Without limiting subsection (2), the Tribunal may permit an application to be made within a further period if the delay in making the application is attributable to genuine attempts by the applicant to reach agreement with the tenant for reinstatement of the tenancy.
(4) A warrant for possession is to be in the form approved by the principal registrar of the Tribunal and must authorise a sheriff's officer to enter specified residential premises and to give possession to the person specified in the warrant.
Note : See section 7A of the Sheriff Act 2005 for provisions relating to the enforcement of warrants.
