Complicated story.

 

My neighbour confided in me she just found out she is being evicted at 9am on the 11th Jan 17.

 

She is 69,

has long term mental health conditions and her affairs were previously handled by the court of protection for some 20 years.

 

She is a leaseholder (66years remaining) of a flat within a house conversation,

 

it appears from the paperwork I have seen the landlord has been successful in gaining possession and she is now being evicted by way of forfeiture.

 

The original claim for forfeiture in 2014(?),

which was withdrawn

 

states for reasons such as no access,

not washing windows,

putting flowers on the window ledge.

 

There has been ongoing disputes between her and the landlord,

ever since as she claims they illegally required the freehold (Some 20 years ago) and she refused to pay a premium of 100k for a new lease,

which cost them (the other two leaseholders) £2.5k to get the freehold.

Her property in size equates to 40% of the building.

 

This lead to them harassing her,

failing to carry out their repairs

and reporting that they thought she was dead and the police breaking in.

She was sectioned under the mental health act ( a few years back), when she disclosed past incidents.

 

For the past 18 months she hasn't opened mail due to her health and conditions.

The mortgagelink3.gif company wasn't initially apart of the claim,

but they have adjoined and appear have been granted some relief at some point.

 

She has only realised,

a friend insisted she opened up the mail and that when she found last weekend she is being evicted next Wednesday.

 

I know she needs to complete an N244link3.gif but what should be included?,

I have taken a copy of the guidance.

 

She is not entitled to legal aid, because of the equity in the property and solicitors want up front fees, and/or short notice.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

I have only had 2 hours sleep myself and have to wake up to 4 kids (one who is broken his leg), work, a meeting with my brothers mental health team who have failed him drastically and assist my neighbour, along with my own health issues.

 

So I need to get some sleep, but will check in the morning for any advice on completing the N244link3.gif or anything else.

 

I have quite a few of the court papers but need to scan them, which I hope to do tomorrow at some point.

 

Many thanks for reading and I hope we can help her.

You are best advised to seek local help.

 

The charity Shelter might have a local advocate that can help with this.

 

http://england.shelter.org.uk/get_advice/eviction/court_action_for_eviction/preventing_eviction

 

Also mental health charities such as Mind, may be able to offer help.

 

What you need is an action plan to deal with the whole situation and charities that deal with these situations are best placed to help.

Yes, you are right. We have contacted shelter already they are calling this evening.

Mind is a great idea, will call them today.

 

Also trying to get through to the royal courts of justice cab. From my experience bwith helping another friend. There service is extremely busy.

 

Whilst an action plan is needed, at the moment the priority would be stop the bailiff evicting her on Wednesday. As I understand to do this she would need submit the n244 asap for a judge decide. But what orders are we asking to set aside and under what grounds..? Help please anyone?

 

Nb. She is being quoted £2500 to complete the n244 by one solicitor firm that had previously assured her in the past. But she doesn't have that. They need up front money. Anyone know a firm who will charge at least half that amount to do the n244?

If she's a mental health patient, the council should help her with this.

Some councils still have in house solicitors.

Also as said, shelter and mind have their own legal teams that could help.

I'm no expert, but I helped my friend fill a n244 some time ago and it wasn't too difficult, so maybe if you don't get any help, you could try yourself.

Others will surely say if this is a bad idea in this case.
