The council is taking me to court paying

Customer Question

The council is taking me to court for eviction for not paying the rent for 5 months now.
My reasons for not paying the rent is because I asked the council to add my mother on my tenancy agreement since last year and nothing is been done till now,I keep chasing the council but they are not responding to me at all,6 weeks ago I did an application for my mum for Housing Benefit as she is entitled to receive if she is on the Tenancy Agreement,but once when I spoke with one lady from the council she said when I sign the agreement my mum was not living with me,now I don't know how I stand with this situation.
My mother has been living with me for 16 months now since July last year,and I signed the tenancy in April last year.
What else can I do?
