Shelter: single mothers, bullying and how to delay eviction

"Does anyone have a test case?"

I took my District Council to the Ombudsman and they found in my favour. Sort of. The person sitting behind the desk at my District Council calling themselves the Councils Homelessness Advisor turned out to be contracted by the COUNTY Council. And my complaint was made against the district council so was invalid. In their final response to the Ombudsman my District Council is shocked and appalled that this person could give out such bad advice from within their offices but it is unable to do anything at all as they are separate organisation and outside of their control. So they still allow them to sit their and dish out the same appalling advice several years later. LOL... Read More

"What's so attractive about Council accommodation .... "

It's the Holy Grail for them. It's cheap (well below market rent), It's guaranteed for your life and the life of your off spring!, it's maintenance and responsibility free (want a new kitchen - no problem, just abuse and ruin the old one and tell them what colour you want).... Read More

Not an expert on this but I've suffered due to this. From my research I believe it is legally wrong (a tort) for anyone (council / shelter) to interfere in a legally valid contract between 2 other parties. If so is their constant and systemic interference an avenue for us to pursue?... Read More

It’s only going to get worse!

Looks like Councils could do with a bit of help from Private Sector Landlords. It is strange then that they pursue illegal policies that harm those very same Landlords. In my world I try not to pi$$ people off that I need help from.... Read More

Why Councils advise tenants to remain in property until eviction

"This is very nearly criminal behaviour". I think it could well be criminal behaviour. We need someone to take a test case to make a precedent. Come on Property 118.

It is clearly against Government guidelines
It is morally wrong
It is vexatious - the outcome is clear. The judges decision to evict is already mandated by law. They are asking for a court date but they don't even have a valid line of defence that they can state.
It is an interference in a legal contract between 2 parties that has nothing to do with the council.
The advice is poor as it damages the tenants future housing needs - she will be blacklisted by PRS in the future and restricted to sub standard scarcely available council properties.
The council are conspiring to commit fraud / encourage someone to break the law ie occupy a property when they no longer have the legal right.
Its a waste of public resources including court time.
The councils advice is biased towards tenant and discriminatory / harmful towards Landlord. Surely if both are council tax payers thy each are equally entitled to support.... Read More
