Nothing will happen immediately. You will not be moved out at the end of the period of notice on the Section 21 (two months probably) and you will not be moved out if you are unable to leave by the date given on the possession order. After that date the court will write to you telling you bailiffs are coming to remove you on a particular day.

Whilst you may have valid reasons for not being able to move e.g. you haven’t found suitable alternative accommodation, when the bailiffs arrive they will have a Warrant of Possession and you will have to move out so TTV recommends that the moment you know you are being fairly evicted you should make it your first priority to find somewhere else to live.
