Languages of publication
The subject of the article is the role of the community after the ruling eviction by the court. There are two types of decisions in this topic. The first one, when the court adjudicates social housing and the second, when the court does not rule such premises. Emptying the premises was regulated in the Act of November 17, 1964 - the Code of Civil Procedure. According to its content, the municipality is obliged to provide social housing, emergency accommodation or temporary space. The last one must be indicated when the judgment debtor is not entitled to premises. Each of these units must fulfill the relevant conditions. The bailiff must remain in constant contact with the community so as to ensure safe conditions for the debtor. In Polish law there is also a protection period for which social housing is not entitled. This article describes these issues, together with an indication of the legal basis.
