Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

We have been issued with a section 21, I am disabled and my husband is retired.
We have been given this because our rent was late 3 months out of 6. We do not have the money to move to another private rented accommodation and even if we did it would be difficult to find the right thing, especially with having a dog.
We need a certain type of property, ideally a bungalow as some days I can hardly move.
My husband had a word with the owner in October last year and asked him to let us know if the rent was late again. We never heard anything until this section 21 came through the door. It wasn’t sent by recorded delivery so we haven’t signed anything to say we have received it.
We have the rent for next month but they want us out by 31st of this month, we have no chance.
Is there anyway we can delay? We love it here, we moved from one district to another for this bungalow and the council say they can not house us because of my needs.
Is there anything we can do?
Please note that the late payments were the banks fault, not ours. They messed up as the rent for the house we lived in before was payable on the 11th but the rent for this new property was due on the 1st.
I am really worried now and it is making me ill.
Please can you help this is the only problem we have we take care of the house and when inspections have been done we always get a good report.
