In pleas which city custom treats like novel disseisin by fresh force, once a suit is introduced, the land or tenement in question is to be seized into the king's hand and the tenant to be removed – the bailiffs may call upon the community to assist in this, if required. The person accused of the forceful intrusion is to be attached to answer the charge on a specified date. At which time an inquest jury may need to be assembled from the neighbourhood of the tenement. If the defendant fails to appear or refuses to attach himself, the inquest may nonetheless authorize seizure of the tenement; it will subsequently be restored either to plaintiff or defendant, depending on the jury's verdict. Such pleas are to proceed on a daily basis, so that a judgement can be reached within 40 days (after which the bailiffs have no power to proceed [without a royal writ]).
