FORJOMO1972 No I was made redundant in 2007 following this I had a breakdown and recieved Incapacity Housing Benefits. In September 2012 my house was repossed and I was rendered homeless. I was homeless for 6 months in three addresses I am now in a Housing Association Property. I went to see a Worker about my circumstances I told them I had £6.000 from Equity from my house that I lost. They sent me a letter asking for proof of repossesion but the thing is they want 6 months of bank statements.
