Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I believe that after buying the freehold of a house converted into 2 flats and due to my disabilities a group of people including my tenant who lives abroad, her solicitor, a management company, and another solicitor who worked for both sides have conspired to get their hands on my property.
I am not the usual landlord. I bought the house as my boys had grown up and moved in with their own families so I needed a small flat to spend the time I have left in peace. I became the landlord as I owned the freehold of the house and the lease was tied to the house by the first landlord who wanted some control if he let part of his home.
The house was just across the road from where I brought up my boys and I liked my neighbours who have given me a lot of help.
3 weeks ago I had to go to court as my tenant and her solicitor were asking for an injunction. The Judge who treated me as though I was a nuisance there was no help given due to the fact that I live with 7 incurable diseases and recently had an operation to remove a cancer. It was almost impossible for me to attend as the case was in the London court and when the case started I was having difficulty staying awake.
I felt that the judge had decided that I was a rouge landlord and my tenant who was not in court was suffering due to myself wanting her to stick to the lease. The judge said I was not the landlord, she did not have to abide by the lease and that I was not to contact her or her sub tenants and that I would have to allow her manager to put tenants into my house without consulting me over anything I just have to put up with everything.
If a district judge can take away everything that would allow me to live in peace and cope with the diseases including Parkinsons and a muscle weakening disease. I found out recently that the solicitor who handles my purchase of the freehold, also help my tenant too, but the lease of her flat and never mentioned anything to me when I asked him to handle the extension of her lease. He never told me that he had her lease details since 2002 and he still refuses to give me a copy of her lease. for all I know she may not have had a lease as I trusted him to work in my interests.
If a district judge can do this to me what next?
