They have not given any reason to change their mind.the decision just came out of the blue. How can a council evict an innocent person with three children one of which has learning difficulties and has to go to a special school. Furthermore if the children are put into care this would have serious implications to the one with difficulties as she finds it very hard to communicate with other people and she needs her Mother to be with her all the time
she is a council tenant that has been constantly harrassed by her neighbour a 73 year old frail woman who has constantly shouted over the garden fence at the children calling them scumbags etc.This harrassment has been going on since my daughter moved into her premises.To cut a long story short as I have not got the time or the space to tell you everything the neighbour twisted it round and said that the harrasmelnt was coming from my daughter. It went to court and the judge felt sorry for the neigbour and said that my daughter had to go. She was told by the council that the likelihood was that if she did not find any private accommodation by a certain time she would be homless and put out into the street and her children would be put into care. Two weeks ago the Council relented and said to my daughter's Solicitor that if she moved out the Council would find her another place to live. Three days later the Council changed their mind (reason we do not know about) and now tomorrow she faces Court again and she is in no doubt that the Council will throw her out on the street and put here three children (one of which is a special needs child) into care which would have a devastating effect on the children. Is there anything I can do? Is there a law re "breach of promise?"
I do not think that she has a diary of the harrassment but I am also positive that the neighbour has not either. The council said that they would move her to my daughter's Solicitor unfortunately this was not put in writing but I believe there was another witness also to this statement.I would have thought that by saying this to the Solicitor (who I would have thought to be a man of integrity) would be sufficient,.especially if the said Solicitor would testify this in court tomorrow. By the way the Solicitor has said to my daughter that he cannot mention this in Court tomorrow which I think is totally outrageous.
They have NO basis to change their mind they are just revoking the offer made to the Solicitor and they have no basis to change their offer to rehouse.it was completely out of the blue
