A short film about accelerated property possession

As we announced in August, it's now possible to make an accelerated property possession online.

The service lets a property owner evict a tenant at the end of a tenancy agreement. This is the first claim to go live as part of the Civil claims service, which is part of the government's transformation programme.

Here's a short film we've made about the service:

The development team has put a lot of work into simplifying the language from what was, in some cases, rather archaic legalese. As Mike wrote back in July, this is a great example of what we mean by our 4th design principle: Do the hard work to make it simple. The law might be an old one, but that doesn't mean the language we use to describe it needs to be.

The team will build on this work to put other claims online in the near future.
