Lewisham council tenant desperate for help?Make Text Bigger
My sister is a Lewisham council tenant for over 25 years and for the last 8 months her life has been a living hell. There is water coming into her property, the walls are wet the cupboards are rotting spoiling all her food, the flat smells, she is being sick from the fumes, they came and stripped all the walls put in humidifiers all this happened in early May, nothing else was done, now the water is flooding the floor they came and pumped it out next day the water was back.
The council told my sister she can give up her flat and go into a old people’s home or sheltered housing, they are refusing to move her.
Let me tell you about my sister she is a retired nurse of 65, she is diabetic now because of what she is going through her blood pressure is very high her Dr is now worried about her heart and she is now on pills for depression.
I went on meetings with her housing officer all he says is that there is nothing he can do, but he does everything he can to stop her being moved.
Please if anyone can tell me what to do how can we make the council do the right thing, please let me know.
