Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know when you expect the benefit decision to be made?
Ok. Have the Council written to you, saying your benefit claim is being processed and need more information etc?
Ok - but you have a letter asking for more information etc?
Ok, you dont need to worry. Let me tell you why
You will have to attend Court. Either at the time of Court
1) Your benefit will have been sorted out and backdated, so they can forget about the possession proceedings
2) If the benefit has not been sorted out, you can ask that the Court adjourn the matter, pending the outcome of benefit
If you are entitled to the benefit the Council will backdate it to cover your rent arrears
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No that is correct
The Judge is unlikely to make any order for possession if there is a pending benefit decision
If I can ask you to rate this answer please, but you can ask for me in future: Alex W
