I was recently at court for rent arrears and this is the wording of the decision after the hearing.?

"The claim is adjourned generally with liberty to restore and shall stand as struck out if no written request to restore is received by 4pm on 13/04/2020"

what could this mean? Any ideas?

    Did you pay the amount in arrears or make an agreement to pay it by a deadline?  This is the wording that is used in these cases; the claim is not dismissed but put on hold. If you fail to pay as you agreed to, the claim can be reopened on request.

    Obviously this is in the UK. It means that the Claimant's claim against you for rent arrears has been adjourned (put on hold) until the 13th April. If the Claimant (who I guess must be your landlord), does not make an application to the court to restore the claim (open the claim up again), then it will be struck off, in other words dismissed as if it had never been started.

    You have until April 13 2020 to pay the money you owe or will be evicted.
