    Can I ask as to how she is forcing you out? Has she asked you to leave or has she ended the tenancy? 

  • posted Anonymously, 14/01/2015 4:12 pm in Homeless occupant not being assisted by council

    Thanks for this.  The individual appears to be vulnerable so ive tried to assist him by advising him about the homeless route and the information he needs to obtain to prove that he is vulnerable (there is a complicated situation in regards to this indivdual and the tenant that left the property which I can't go in to here) and I'm hoping he has attended CAB for assistance.

  • From Alan London, 13/01/2015 6:11 pm in Relationship break down and moving out with housing association tenancy

    Thanks. No info on the website regarding assignment or succession but in the tenancy agreement it only refers to the subject when talking about the death of the tenant. My partner is still quite young and although it would be nice to have the ability to assign...if it exists, there are other questions to be considered. Her job is not secure and she has been told that if she should need to claim housing benefit in the future then she would only be able to claim for half the rent should my name still be on the tenancy. Were ...

    Hi Andrew,

  • From Rose007, 21/12/2014 4:22 pm in Death, Secure Tenancy, Downsizing and relatives moving in

    I advise you to seek proper advice on this.  There are many people that provide advice on this site that is not necessarily correct.  Have you now succeeded to the tenancy or is that still being looked into.  The Localism Act introduced further rules relating to succession.  caselaw is Newport CC v Charles considered by court of appeal.  The son kept up a pretence his mother was still alive when she had died a number of years previous.  The initial court hearing granted possession under Ground 16 which was overturned on appeal as more than 12 months had passed ...

    Hello there,

  • posted Anonymously, 24/11/2014 4:58 pm in Couple one over 65 bedroom tax advice

    I am over 65 and live in a small council flat. I suffer from spinal arthritis as well as other health problems. I have decided to swap my flat with a housing association tenant whose flat is slightly larger than mine I.e an extra small bedroom. I am looking ahead as I may eventually be confined to a wheel chair. I have been told that I would not have to pay the bedroom tax.  I live on my own and would be living on my own if the swap goes through. Does anyone know if I have to pay ...
