    A possession order lasts 6 years. However, because you had started the proceedings during this period which were interrupted by COVID, it might be okay still (in all honesty not entirely sure as not seen one like this before now).

    Looking at our guidance, it should have been automatically rescheduled by the bailiff where they were due to attend.

    Anyway, best thing to do is contact the bailiff via the county court where the order was made and explain that they were due to attend and you wish to reschedule.

    This is good guidance on seeking possession including enforcement of an order and includes details about COVID.
