Form N5 - Claim for possession of property (rent arrears only)

Use the N5 claim form to apply for a court order to get possession of a property. You can use it if you've given your tenants a valid 'section 8' notice (seeking possession due to rent arrears) and the tenants have either not left or still not paid the arrears by the deadline given in that notice.

You can only use it if you are a private landlord seeking possession against a tenant with an assured or assured shorthold tenancy agreement solely on the grounds of rent arrears.

It must be completed together with Form N119. Once completed, both forms must be sent to the relevant court together with the appropriate court fee to be issued. It is only suitable for claims within England & Wales and should not be used for claims using the accelerated possession procedure.
