Alex Watts : Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Alex Watts : Does she occupy the house alone, ie not with other tenants please?
She claimed originally to have two children but it has been ascertained that her children are in care. She is desperately trying to secure a proper accommodation with the Council to get her children back but the council have terminated her agreement. She now claims she has moved a "boyfriend" in. This is presumably to stop us going in when she goes out.
Alex Watts : Yes but there are no other tenants, ie from a different family? She occupies the house as one family?
no other tenants
Alex Watts : ok. Sadly you need a court order.
Alex Watts : Even though she is there on licence because she is the sole family a court order is needed.
Alex Watts : You need to complete the usual forms such as n5b
Alex Watts : But ask the court for an urgent listing.
Alex Watts : But you can't evict without a court order.
Alex Watts : Or strangely enough you could be prosecuted for an unlawful eviction
Alex Watts : I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you but I have a duty to be honest
yes. SHe is threatening me under the Criminal Law Act 1977
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Alex Watts : She is correct.
Alex Watts : A court order is what you need.
yes. What is the fee for the N5b and how quick am I likely to get a hearing
Alex Watts : £175. It all depends on listing I am afraid.
