I have been living in a council property with my son

Customer Question

I have been living in a council property with my son for over three months since my marriage broke up with a family member. He has now ended his tenancy with the council and this will make us homeless. We have nowhere to go. Can the council just breakin and throw all our belongings out or do they have to serve us with an eviction notice first

Why did your son surrender the tenancy if you have nowhere to go?

The family member surrendered his tenancy as he was moving to another property. He never said anything to me until he had sent in the letter to the council saying he was quiting the property. Me and my 12 year old son only new when he had sent it in.
