Dumbledore arrives on time, taking the Dursleys by surprise. They move into the living room; he has a few things to discuss. In his will, Sirius bequeathed all his possessions to Harry, including his family fortune and house. However, the Order have moved out of 12 Grimmauld Place because they are not sure if Harry has inherited it properly. He was concerned that there were enchantments to prevent it from passing to someone who wasn't a pure-blood, which might mean that the house would fall into ownership of Bellatrix Lestrange.

After ''two'' prologues, we now go to Harry Potter. He is once more staying at the Dursleys for the summer holidays. Copies of the ''Daily Prophet'' lying around reveal a few things that are going on. Much of the wizarding world suspects ([[Recap/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenixC37TheLostProphecy somewhat correctly]]) that the destroyed prophecy made Harry "the Chosen One" to defeat Voldemort. Scrimgeour has succeeded Fudge, though rumours exist of a rift between the former and Dumbledore. Hogwarts will resume as normal, with extra protection. A safety leaflet from the Ministry advises on how to deal with threats from Voldemort, including [[ChekhovsGun "inferi"]]. And there is a note from Dumbldore, who is about to pay a visit to the house at 11pm to collect Harry and take him to the Burrow. He also wants Harry to assist him with something along the way.

Dumbledore arrives on time, taking the Dursleys by surprise. They move into the living room; he has a few things to discuss. In his will, Sirius bequeathed all his possessions to Harry, including his family fortune and house. However, the Order have moved out of 12 Grimmauld Place because they are not sure if Harry has inherited it properly. He was concerned that there were enchantments to prevent it from passing to someone who wasn't a pure-blood, which might mean that the house would fall into ownership of Bellatrix Lestrange.

To test if Harry is the house's rightful owner, Dumbledore summons Kreacher and asks Harry to give him an order. The house elf angrily protests that doesn't want to serve Harry. Harry order Kreacher to shut up. It works. Harry then orders Kreacher to go to Hogwarts to serve with the other house elves there. An embittered Kreacher vanishes. There is also Buckbeak the hippogriff. Harry agrees to let Dumbledore return Buckbeak to Hagrid, where he will be renamed Witherwings.

Harry finishes packing, and then Dumbledore addresses the Dursleys. He says that Voldemort has returned and Harry is in greater danger than ever. He reprimands them for treating Harry poorly for the many years he lived there, though says that at least Harry did not end up a spoiled bully like Dudley. He says that the magical protection that Harry gains from living with the Dursleys will disappear in one year's time when Harry comes of age (by turning 17). He asks them to let Harry stay the following summer for the last time. He and Harry then depart. Dumbledore casts a spell to transport Harry's possessions to the Burrow and the two of them then depart on their mission.
