I was living in Islington in London and I had Housing

Customer Question

I was living in Islington in London and I had Housing benefit case which was solved by Islington Law Center in London around 2007/2008.
Islington council started asking for payments over £4000.00. I have been asking Islington Law Centre for my file for over a year now but they have not given me my file and they said they have found it. I have been going to Islington Law center for the past one year but to no avail. I am presently living in Basildon, Essex

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I want them to release my file because the case was dissolved and I do not have to pay. I want Islington Law centre to give me my file, the letter showing that the case has finished is in the file
