  2. Residents had a parking scheme inflicted on them by managing agents VCS were contracted and issued tickets to residents like confetti The managing Agents have capitulated and kicked VCS off the site and are cancelling all the tickets according to an article in the Daily Mail. surely the Residents supremacy of contract would have prevailed? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5139189/Firm-fines-people-20-000-parking-spaces.html
  3. The letter said he has a lodger(he has never had one) he uses the house for immoral purposes which is really wrong as only we, his family visit him. The council has also been looking through his windows snooping. He is 64 and has heart problems. He goes to court in January but he's done nothing wrong. This is not the first time someome has reported him, last year someone reported him for his hedge. As soon as he came out of hospital after his operation he was reported for the hedge and the grass being too long. Well he couldn't walk without losing his breath, he has COPD and arthrit
  4. Hi I posted on here about 12 months ago as my family were evicted (s21 no fault) from a house we were renting. Of my deposit of £1600 I had £300 deducted for 'sham' cleaning. Because we struggled to get another place the landlord took us to court to get the house back. Corporate landlord who didn't want pets in the house. We managed to find another home eventually. It's much scruffier than the last one but we painted it and made it nice etc, but things keep breaking, dodgy plumbing and so on. the owner now wants to sell (she's not a professional lan
  5. Hi all. I have a court hearing this Thursday 10 April 2014, I have received a Order for possession (accelerated procedure) (assured shorthold tenancy) So I believe the court hearing is so that I may request more time to find a new home. My main question is "Why do I have to Pay to be Evicted?" I have already submitted a defence form asking for more time to pay this cost, but the Order says I must pay it on or before the 10th. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks.
  6. I got my court letter for posseion today on our property, the date is march 13th although eviction will probably be a few weeks after so we'll be here through march I think. We have been told we will be put in temp/emergency accomidation, which was expected, we cant afford to move out and as we work we are not entiltled to much housing benefit. I just want to know if anyone else has been through this as I dont know anyone who has before, I already have storage sorted for my furnature, but I really have no idea what to bring with me. Please dont judge me, just because we work we
  7. I am enquiring here on behalf of my neighbour who is unwell and unable to use a computer. She is 58 yrs old and one of her daughters has been evicted by the council, she has a 7 yr old daughter of her own. Having the knowledge of how private renting is for many people, temporary and moving time and again, and really not wanting her daughter and granddaughter to go into the homeless facility, has let her daughter and granddaughter move in with her, but the property is only one bedroom flat. My neighbour has vacated her bedroom to let the child have it and she and her adult daughter are using
  8. I signed a 12 month AST which was due to expire 19th December 2014. Once I had given my notice to the letting agent that I was not going to renew (I have bought a house) then agent asked if they could begin viewings for a potential new tenant, so we allowed this. They found a new tenant quickly and asked (via telephone) if the new tenant could move in at the end of November. We completed on the house in October and so the keys were handed back on 25th November 2014 on the basis that this was a joint and voluntary surrendering of the tenancy agreement. This was all done via telephone and nothin

  10. The lender obtained a suspended possession order in Jan 2011 for my mortgage being in arrears due to unemployment. This continued for a couple more months but they were understanding and let me make reduced payments for a while. Then i got a job and have been employed ever since. For the last 27 months ive made 27 payments of more than my contractual monthly amount. Jan 2014 the lender wrote to me and said i hadnt been paying off the arrears quick enough (despite them agreeing to the payments id been making) and they were applying to get me evicted, court has sent eviction date of 13/2/14.

  12. Hi All Really need your help with my situation please guys! On the 7th February my family and i were evicted after 5 years of fighting.

  13. Can anybody offer me advice on how to handle this. I am being evicted on 13 Jan 2013. I am likely to struggle to find another place because a) fewer letting opportunities over Christmas and b) Leaders the letting agents will probably not provide a good reference. I am also worried about my deposit. Having waited for months for a completion date on the sale of my home I had to move quickly when it was finally agreed or risk losing the sale. A family member was seriously ill with a heart attack and we were very stressed. We found a property with L
  14. Hi, I have rented my property for the last 18 months. Although there is a no pet rule I didn't think it would be a problem because a lot of residents in the flats have them (including 2 directors of the management company.) Said company have just posted a notice on the board outside saying any person renting have to get rid of any pets by 31st December 2012 of face eviction. Anyone who owns their flat can keep their pets. My landlord is fine with the one cat that I own. As I have mentioned 2 members of the board have dogs. My neighbour (who also rents) has just been served a noti
  15. Given my circumstances I am not even sure if this can be considered an eviction but I'll try anyway. I share a room with three other gents in a guest house (please don't laugh). I have paid weekly for over a year. All was fine until a couple of months ago when some of the staff took the liberty of spreading rumours about me and being disrespectful and I had a couple of minor issues, which weren't my fault (see my prev posts). To cut the story short last month the landlord put a guy in our room that looked a bit worse for wear. We got very suspicious and we discovered that he suffered
  16. Good evening, Currently I live with my 5 flatmates in London and the last week we received a letter by a mortgage company to inform us the house is going to be repossessed. (In fact the landlord doesn't pay the bank anymore.) So it seems we need to wait the confirmation from the court to know when we are going to be evicted exactly. Then we should receive the confirmation before the end of June to confirm the exact date when all of them will have to leave the house. We pay the rent to an agency every month but our deposits are not protected. Moreover the agency is refusing to protect our
  17. Hi all, new to the forum so hopefully I'm posting this in the right place. I lived in a council home with my two younger brothers, it's our family home. My brother was made redundant Sept last year. I was temping and unable to afford the rent but my brother was applying for job seekers allowance and help with the rent. I called the council and informed them of this. My brother is now working (on a much lower wage), I'm also working but we did have rent arrears, I was paying the rent April and May with an extra £30 each week, my brother made sure I didn't see any of the letters fro
