If Students don't provide proof I'll have to pay Council Tax?

just out of interest many councils now outsource their housing benefit/council tax to 3rd parties, such as Capita, who are much more aggressive in claiming c.tax and dealing with h.benefit. I had this issue about c. tax with community living, which is clients with learning difficulties, sharing a property (usually owed by a social housing organisation) they each have a room BUT share the community areas (kitchen, hall, bathroom etc). First of all it was around the fact that if more than 3 people it had to be registered as an HMO and secondly if one left then c.tax was payble by the owner (housing ass) unless the remaining clients supplied a GP form stating mental impairment (which they all did). We only had all this fuss once the council tuped over their c.tax/h.benefit to a 3rd party.... Read More

Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital - Landlord Action response

If she has been sectioned then she cannot leave hospital voluntarily. She then becomes subject to S.117 aftercare and social services must pay for her care/support. if if she went into a house and was assessed as needing carer calls they would have to pay this in full. If she went into a care home then social services would have to pay the full care home bill - I would think social services and the nhs are fighting over who pays what and helps her which is the usual scenario in these cases. If the convent is so involved why are they not offering to accommodate/support her in the interim and also store her belongings? As the kicked in door showed no damage according to your agent then how could it have been kicked in and therefore become your responsibility she was attacked by friends of a carer she employed directly. Just because people have mental health issues does not mean they are not capable of con tricks and other actionsd. As I said before if she has a deputy you should be chasing him/her... Read More

Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital - Landlord Action response

Reply to the comment left by Fuming Landlord at 02/07/2019 - 19:11
you referred in your first post to having a deputy. A financial deputy is appointed by the court of protection to manage the affairs of someone who is deemed to lack capacity in this area (usually via a medical) under the mental capacity act 2005. Most of these orders relate to people with dementia, followed by mental health issues (which bi polar is) and learning difficulties. The other deputy order is a deputy for health and welfare decisions where the person is unable to make the decision for themselves and they usually fall into the same bracket as above, ie if somone had dementia or a learning difficulty etc. If you google Office of the Public guardian it explains in more detail...

Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital - Landlord Action response

In your first post you refer to her having a deputy (which comes via the court of protection). If she has a financial deputy then he or she is responsible for all her finances/contracts/tenancies as defined in the court order so you should be dealing with that deputy in relation to finances/debts as she would have been deemed to lack financial capacity under the mca 2005 in order for a deputy to be appointed. It may be her deputy is just one for health/welfare (which are less common) and if that is so then that deputy should be sorting out her accommodation. If she has a deputy get the court order ref and if they are not engaging with you complain to the office of the public guardian. She has her problems but you are not responsible for them her deputy is, along with the nhs and social services.... Read More
