(3) The court grants the claimant possession but suspends the operation of the order. Provided the defendant complies with the terms of suspension, which usually requires the defendant to pay the current rent plus some of the accrued arrears, the possession order cannot be enforced.
(4) The court, following a judicial hearing, may grant an order for possession immediately. This entitles the claimant to apply for a warrant to have the defendant evicted. However, even where a warrant for possession is issued, the parties can still negotiate a compromise to prevent eviction.
Ministry of Justice
Mr. Wallace: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what steps he plans to take to ensure former juvenile prisoners move to young offender prisons or wings once they reach their 18th birthday. 
Mr. Hanson: The policy of the Youth Justice Board is that those young people serving a Detention and Training Order aged 18 and over in a Prison Service unit should remain in the young persons' estate to complete the custodial part of their sentence unless there are exceptional personal or population management circumstances which require them to be moved to the young adult estate.
