Decision made in May. She appealed in June. Review came in July 1 stating 21 days to go to county court on a point of law. They also suspended her housing benefit then started an investigation and chased her for rent arrears then evicted her from the B&B and put her in a council hostel where more rent arrears accrued. One year later they closed the investigation and reinstated housing benefit and backdated all payments to April last year. Her account is clear. Can they do this. They then evicted her from the hostel and she's been staying with us since January this year. She had to sign a fresh homeless application which has wiped out 2 years of waiting and sent her to the back of the queue. Can they really do this?
Thanks for the additional information. I'm a little confused why they decided to suspend housing benefit etc. Was the suggestion that she had lied about something or made a false statement?
