I have checked his tenancy agreement and there is something about being in breach of certain sections of the housing act, one of which mentions being arrested for illegal activity, but I'm not sure what this means. The police have intimated that his age, the fact he has never been in trouble with them, his willingness to get help etc may all count towards him being charged with a lesser offence, a shorter custodial or even a suspended sentence. Basically the concern is that we sign the agreement in July before he is charged, he then gets a sentence of sone kind, this is possibly reported to the landlord (can this happen?) and he is evicted.....
Its a local propety company acting on behalf of an unspecified landlord. The company is called Dunson Properties Ltd.
Is that enough information?
If he is in custody but I visit the property and maintain its upkeep etc, without revealing anything about where my son is then would the landlord still need to be informed?
