Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016

Section 65 - Extended possession order against sub-holder

210.When making a possession claim against the contract-holder, the head landlord may also apply to the court for an ‘extended possession order’ against the sub-holder, providing the notice requirements in subsection (3) have been met, or the court considers it reasonable to allow the application to go ahead even if those requirements have not been met. The court may only consider the application for an extended possession order against the sub-holder where it has decided to make a possession order against the contract-holder. Furthermore, the court may only make an extended possession order if it would have made a possession order had the contract-holder made a possession claim against the sub-holder.
