Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital - Landlord Action response

Reply to the comment left by Paul Maguire at 09/07/2019 - 20:00That’s all there was. The Yale lock. No bolts. The letting agent did fit some bolts on the back of the door eventually but that wasn’t until the tenant had been almost died from suicide and been transferred from the general hospital to the mental one the first time....

Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital - Landlord Action response

Colette it was a temporary Section to stop her returning to the property when they needed the bed in the general hospital not a treatment order so no Section 117 aftercare rights. She has told me she is waiting for a financial assessment of how much she has to pay towards her home care as that will affect how much she is able to pay me in per week/month of her rent arrears. So nobody is fighting over who pays for her care as she will have to pay for some of it herself and social services the rest. The NHS won’t be paying for anything. The kicked in door had minor damage where it had been kicked in but nothing major such as coming off its hinges as the lock was a
simple Yale lock. The convent mostly consists of elderly sick Sisters nowadays. They could not possibly accommodate her or her furniture and belongings there as it is only a small convent and the Mother Superior lives there with just two active Sisters (aged 82 and 89) and 11 sick elderly Sisters aged 81-98 crammed in who all require a lot of care and attention and who only have the Sisters and three part-time carers to look after them! It is only because the Mother Superior and the tenant are very close friends that they are involved in the first place. My tenant has NO deputy. I have no idea why you think that she has. There certainly is nothing to suggest that the door was a con. The women who kicked it in were NOT friends of someone she employed as I have stated twice. They were friends of someone who APPLIED but for some reason she chose NOT to employ them. Perhaps they didn’t have the relevant experience or she didn’t trust them. But what took place is legally known as “aggravated burglary” and it was THAT which led to her breakdown which caused her to attempt suicide and nearly die. Twice. No other happening has ever been mentioned as a trigger to her mental decline. The Mother Superior explained to the letting agent how the AB left the tenant a nervous wreck and from then she just went downhill.... Read More

Her claim hasn’t ended. Her housing benefit claim for the property began when she moved in last year but it was being paid to her until October. She last paid me in full the payment due in late August but I didn’t receive it till 3rd September. She didn’t pay on 24th September or October so Housing Benefit then started paying directly to me but she says she had already asked them to pay me directly hence didn’t pay me again and paid me a couple of payments in November which she received in October. I think she has pocketed a couple of payments. It’s very confusing because housing benefit pay us in arrears. She owes now maybe £2300?... Read More

Yes I have been receiving her housing benefit directly since last October and I don’t see how it could possibly be clawed back. I checked the law. The tenant still lives in the property as the tenancy agreement is still valid as she hasn’t ended her tenancy. All of her furniture and belongings are still there. Housing benefit can be paid for up to 52 weeks of the tenant being in hospital but if during that time the tenant spends just one night there then the year starts all over again. She spent two nights there in November though she tried to end her life on the second. She is entitled to the housing benefit as she is still on ESA and I have been receiving the one bedroom LHA rate for her. It’s the shortfall which she can’t afford.... Read More

I have also learned that in December the tenant was so overwhelmed by debt that she decided she was leaving hospital and returning “home” to the property to pay it all off as she was feeling well again after a month in a different hospital and thought she would be ok. But the hospital’s reaction was to Section her under the Mental Health Act even though she was mentally stable because they strongly believed that her safety and welfare and possibly her life would be at risk if she was to return to the property. So she didn’t “choose to stay away from the property” if that was the case as I assume you can’t leave hospital if you are sectioned? She has got a case I can see but now it appears that I may have wrongly served the notice after all of this.... Read More
