Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, how are you? Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. Please note there may be delays in responding as I am away helping other customers but I will get back to you as soon as I can. I may also need to ask you some clarifying questions to determine the legal position.
1 - Yes she will be liable for rent as per the original contract for the duration she resides in the property.
2 - Yes you may do so and let the council know of your situation. As she is facing homelessness with a disabled child she classifies as “Priority” and they should be able to provide emergency housing. This is obviously more convenient as she would get accommodation and you too, would not need to be homeless and the council will be aware of this.
I hope this helps?
But I agree speak with the council in Wiltshire and there is no need to disclose to them you are in rented accommodation just let it be known you too, will also be homeless and let them know of the fees you’ve incurred for removal and suggest slightly they’ll be liable for these fees if they do not place your tenant in emergency housing as soon as possible.
I am glad I was able to help. Have a great day.
