From 22nd April there will be one unified single County Court instead of each area having its own County Court. Cases will still be heard and dealt with locally but the introduction of a single County Court will make the transfer of cases easier. 

For practical purposes this means that from 22nd April the heading to Court papers will alter.  Instead of saying that the case is “In the [any town] County Court” you will now simply say “In the County Court”.

This is in addition to increases in eviction process fees reported earlier.

Landlords should take note that these changes may impact the processes required to evict tenants and should take care to ensure they are using the most up to date documents available.
