Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I'm thinking whether it's better to go to court as I have lots of mitigating circumstances
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I have had to give up mi job due to cancer which I had 3 major ops within a space of 6 months
I have numerous emails between me and the housing association

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I have cleared all my arrears , my court date is set for the 1st
Expert:  Clare replied 3 months ago.

has a Possession Order ever been made in the past?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
on 2 occasions when I battled cancer and when m husband who married me to stay in the country left me I managed to cleave the arrears on both occasions
Expert:  Clare replied 3 months ago.

Then you must fight it

Provided there are no arrears when you go to court and you do not fall into arrears again then it is unlikely that the Court will make a possession order at this stage - but I fear that one more set of arrears will be a major issue

Please ask if you need further dteails

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Even though I may fail the credit check ?
Expert:  Clare replied 3 months ago.

Even then!

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Do yo think I need a solicitor ?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I just had a phonecall from the hosing association to inform me that there's no point in getting a solicitor as they are simply seeking possession of the property .
Expert:  Clare replied 3 months ago.

You should certainly seek help from your local housing support
