Yes, there was an order for possession but when I searched for the solicitors in the solicitors and barristers diary - I could not find them and assumed that the whole thing was a scam. I am on disability living allowance because in the past I had mental health issues and this is known to the housing association.

They said I did not give them enough information. They wanted proof that I was not working and asked for bank statements which I provided to them twice. I still didn't know what else they wanted? Also after the eviction the Housing Association said that they would restore the tenancy as long as the arrears were paid but subsequently changed their mind.

I did not go court. Yes, I was always on Housing Benefit but I attended a medical and was judged fit for work and my benefit was stopped. I reapplied for the Housing benefit and filled out the application form and provided the bank statements of proof that I was not working.
No, I did not apply to suspend the warrant and I did not defend the proceedings. I was in a state of confusion and I did not open any of the letters that were sent to me and the Housing Association are refusing to provide copies of what was sent. I said that there was a warrant for possession but I did not see it - I was going by what the Housing Association said they sent. The Bailiffs came but there was some confusion whether they were there for council tax or possession of the property and they wouldn't let me have the warrant and was put out of the property by the police.
