Welcome to HM Courts & Tribunals Service, Possession Claim Online service.

Possession Claim Online (PCOL) is HM Courts & Tribunals Service's Internet based service for claimants and defendants.

HMCTS have updated PCOL so solicitors need the client's Solicitor Access Code to enter claims for clients.

PCOL is a simple, convenient and secure way of making or responding to certain types of possession claim on the Internet.

A Civil Procedure Rules Practice Direction governs the type of claims that can be issued using the PCOL service. We recommend that you familiarise yourself with this and the contents of the User Guide before commencing issue.

With PCOL you can keep an eye on the status of your Claim, Judgment and/or Warrant.

You will be asked to pay the fees to issue Claims and Warrants online by Debit or Credit Card. If you use this service regularly you may be able to register to pay fees by Direct Debit.

PCOL has been designed to be easy to use from a computer and is supported by a Customer Help Desk.

Court diaries for claims issued within PCOL are viewable online. Click this link if you are interested in viewing the Court Diary.

If you are making a request to the court to issue a warrant of possession in respect of a matter where a suspended possession order has been made in respect of payments against rent or a mortgage please use form N325A and file together with the fee and material requested at the appropriate hearing centre.

The request should not be made through PCOL and must be made in paper format.

If you are making a request to the court to issue a warrant of possession for any other reason please continue to use form N325.
