Resolved Question:

I left my husband due to domestic violence, I had a joint tenceny with the council. I went to them for help and they gave me nums for a womens refused , they took me in and rehoused in another city. six ago I applied to move back so I could be with family and the council told me that I have a county court judgument for £2000 for rent arrears.they asked me to show them proof that I was living there, which I did, I gave them a copy of the letter from the refuge I stayed in which was dated and explain that they could also check with my council and they would confirm that ive lived here for 3 years. since ive done this nobody will return my calls or emails.

Martina,Let me try and help. This is something which can and should be resolved. The LA can set aside the judgment on the basis of agreeing an order. The fact that they advised you to leave and helped source somewhere for you to go and thereafter you would not have received details of the judgment proceedings all work in your favour. You can either apply to the court to get the judgment set aside using a form N244 - or and I would do this first (sooner rather than later) - I would get your local MP to speak to the LA on your behalf to basically put pressure on this being resolved. I hope that this helps. Please rate positive

so does this mean that I can get it removed? the letter I gave to the council also stated that the police DVU was involed . when I was past from department too department I was informed that there were no rent arrears when I left and they do have it on there computer that I attend the council for help.

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.
I would imagine that the rent arrears came after you left as you were a joint tenant. This way you can potentially get it removed. I hope this helps. Please rate positive
