Court action and repossession

If your mortgage lender has given you a calling-up notice and has complied with the pre-action requirements they can then apply to the sheriff court for an order to repossess and sell your home. Before the property can be sold, your lender will also require a court order telling you that you have to move out, called a warrant of ejection. This section tells you all you need to know about the repossession process.
