You do not know me!

Reply to the comment left by David Price at 29/11/2018 - 21:14I was rather astonished by what Mandy had written as I have experienced Shelter supporting a vile tenant who stole money from me by not paying the rent and due to a technicality in the court paper work, got away with no CCJs for over £3000 rent that was owed and left a newly decorated property in a real mess ready to be fully redecorated once more.
The only way shelter supports the tenants is by using the legal aid system to help the tenant get away with no CCJs for rent owed and preparing them for the next landlord.
I think Mandy you are swaying away from your usually very good posts but who am I to say I must have missed something.
I agree with your comments David.... Read More

A very good article up to the point where much of it would appear to be racist to refugees and asylum seekers however, if that is what you experienced so be it.
I have experienced virtually everything you mentioned up to the point where you mentioned the comments which would appear racist however, in saying that, I have experienced several from other countries that have everything brand new with all the latest gear that have not only not paid the rent but complained about not getting what they should.
Hopefully, the article will have some impact but I think nothing will be done until, landlords start selling up although, I am most grateful that we have the National Alliance fighting for us and I do believe that we have some hope.... Read More

Support a homelessness charity which provides actual shelter!

A very similar thing had happened to me when I attempted to evict a tenant from a property where the tenant owed me over £3,000 and had caused a lot of damage within about 3 months,.I think it was two days before the hearing, that I received a letter from shelter’s solicitor stating that my application was invalid and that they would be representing the tenant.
On the day of the hearing, the barrister that attended, pointed out some minor errors in the forms that were filled in (Not the section 8 form). In order to prevent the case from going any further, I suggested to the barrister that I would be prepared to agree to wipe out the debt of £3000 plus, as long as we agreed that the tenant vacates the property within 28 days. The barrister insisted on letting her stay a further six months and wipe out the debt as it would be difficult for the lady to find accommodation, but I totally disagreed. As we were called to the hearing, the barrister agreed to the tenant vacating within 28 days.
At the hearing, the judge stated that the hearing would have to be adjourned and, an agreement signed so that it was agreed by both parties and I would have to pay the days court hearing costs and he would allow me to amend the documentation ready for the next hearing. At that point, I did not realise, that had I agreed if not drafted properly, the tenant could have still stayed on after the 28 days and I would have had to start the same process again but this time using a section 21 notice as I had wiped out the debt.
After the hearing, I engaged counsel at a cost of around £500 (as once again the shelter solicitor was not initially agreeing to the tenant leaving within 28 days) who drew up a Tomlin order and all this was very stressful as, it transpired that the barrister’s costs at the hearing was £1400 plus I would have had to pay shelter’s solicitor’s costs from the start of the case which was quite shocking.
The counsel who was very good managed after a lot of stressful days for me, managed to get them to agree that I wipe out the debt and the tenant leaves within 28 days where, she would get away with getting a CCJ.
So all in all, I ended up losing around £4000 and a flat that needed to be fully redecorated and the tenant who was a nasty person got away with it all. I believe the solicitor and barrister were paid with tax payer's money as, the tenant was on legal aid.... Read More
