    No notices were posted


    The mother passed away October 2018 and locks changed late June 2019


    The son has contract work, which is still continuing this month


    He and I have tried daily to call but never get to first spot on queue before other constraints take over


    No idea about county court, but very doubtful as it seemed to happen after boiler safety check 


    Is being told to call the HA and last email reply was talk of not being tenant so can’t discuss arrears and advise not paying further rent. They want to arrange collection of belongings and (then?) issue Notice to Quit


    It’s all getting a bit much for them, so he’s taking a sick day to go to CAB Today. He’s due overseas next Monday until September.


    So No notices posted and know they want to issue Notice to Quit after the HA already taken possession illegal IMHO !


    Have you told us every think ?

    As i said previously the son is not considered a tenant because he's not registered there.

    Nothing he can do imo rather than collect his stuff and find another place.

    Unless he's ready to break the lock and enter the property, at risk of being arrested.


    Rachmanism spring to mind reading someone posts


    No one ever suggested until till know that the son breaks in !

    Wouldn't he be faced with court action to claim back decades of over paid housing benefit which was claimed as a single occupier by his mother?


    If he managed to get back into the property that is - or maybe even if he didn't having drawn attention to what is in fact benefit fraud on a grand scale.



    But OP posted this below so where does benefit fraud on a grandscale come from ?



    She had been advised by the council previously that it would be best to pay for a single occupant, even though they were aware of her son

    I said that in my other post, but someone here thinks that it's ok to do that and than claim full tenancy rights.


    Someone still  does Not understand  How to obtain lawfully possession of a property and  Succession rights !




  2. Hello tallorder


    Did the HA post any notices through the door or stick on the door a notice saying they where going to take possession of the property, before they changed the locks ?


    Do you know or can you find out, how long it was from the mother passing away till HA change the locks ?


    Someone needs to contact local county court or by telephone and find out did the HA had a valid possession order or not when they change the locks ?


    And what did happened to All the mothers belonging ?

    problem is all the "can"'s and "if"'s dont apply to this individual. The law doesnt say the tenancy will automatically pass to someone who doesnt live there.

    It is all very well quoting an organisations guides but of no real use when they arent applicable. it still goes back to the fact that he was never registered as a tenant or joint tenant.

    The person had plenty of opportunity to correct the shortfalls in his situation but didnt


    Another person who doesn't a clue on lawfully possessions  and succession rights,  I never said "tenancy will automatically pass to someone who doesn't live there"


    See what OP has to say anyway, if they reply.................................


    Good afternoon.

    I'm not supporting anything illegal but i am old enough to accept that sometimes i cannot change things and have to live with it.

    Fighting a lost cause is for younger and inexperienced people so they can learn like i did in the days when I had a head full of hair and could run 10 miles barefoot.

    Besides, the son failed to declare he was living there and avoided paying rent and council tax for 4 decades, isn't that illegal?


    They where aware of son.



    She had been advised by the council previously that it would be best to pay for a single occupant,

    even though they were aware of her son.




    I'm too am old enough to accept that you need a lawfully possession order to take a property back, including rent arrears.

    Yes, i agreed to that at post 1.

    My following question is: What you gonna do about it???

    Answer: Nothing!

    And in this case the son could be peeled like a potato in a banana coat if he's not careful.

    So the illegality of it is absolutely irrelevant.


    Im doing nothing and waiting for a reply from the OP.


    In the meaning time keep replying to posts that support illegal acts !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    All well and good, but once the locks have been changed, what are you going to do about it?

    You can throw money at it and waste taxpayer's money to win £50 compensation for distress.

    And then?

    The lock has been changed.

    You say illegally, They would argue that the son was staying there rent free and cheating the system by claiming of not being there.

    Then what?

    The son could be in for a shock with an enormous bill for unpaid council tax and rent.

    I am all against HA, they're the devil, but on this one I have to say that the son could've at least replied to their communication instead of waiting until they changed the locks.

    Now it's too late and there's too much to lose challenging the HA.

    The son in any case will not get back into the property,  unless a miracle happens.


    You really have No grasp at All, how to lawfully gain possession of a property or Succession rights to a tenancy granted in 1977 do you.


    If there No valid possession order. i


    Its illegal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Just because, someone has passed away is No excuse for HA to take back a property unlawfully.


    Just because, it happens in Great London is No excuse for HA to take back a property unlawfully.


    Just because, there a housing shortage and changing locks an accepted practice is No excuse for HA to take back a property unlawfully.


    Just because, Son may or may not have Succession rights is No excuse for HA to take back a property unlawfully.


    Just because, judges are aware of this and lenient is No excuse for HA to take back a property unlawfully.


    HA should know about the various housing act and tort of goods act, but clearly don't.


    Before you know it, where be back in the rachman era.....................

  8. LL and HA cannot go around willy nilly just changing locks.


    The Son needs to find out did the HA have a valid possession order to change the the locks, ask the HA or contact the county court.


    From 1977 The mum and son been living there, the Son may have had Succession rights  to mums tenancy, which the HA sounds like they taken away unlawfully.




    If there was No valid possession order, Son may be able to sue HA for illegal eviction, this would need to checked with  CAB, Shelter or Solicitor  1st.

    Statement to police has now been done 


    Complaint has been made to the ICO as I done a sar request and they have refused and are saying in the terms it says you have to pay £75 + vat to get a copy of tenancy agreement and deposit ect 


    Have a read of this about subject access request 




    I dont think they can ask for 75 pounds ?


  10. mmfhater

    Did your Brother give permission to letting agent to clear his room out ?


    If No, Illegal eviction spring to mind.




    Just because someone been remanded or sentence to a term of imprisonment, the tenancy still carry's on.


    Brother could be released next week or when ever, where he going to live ?


    Courts and in the end bailiffs end a tenancy and not a Letting agent or LL.


    Sounds like someone helped themselves to brother belonging.


    Brother could sue for illegal eviction.

    Have always paid rent increases

    Asked the Landlord to apply small rent increase every 2 years or so

    Landlord through Agent stating they can get at least £400 to £500 more than the rent I am paying

    I argue Have been a good tenant for 23 years and always paid my rent on time and look after the property over and above the Norm,they are not interested
