Possession Proceedings: Untidy property

21 Jan 2021 | Manjit Mandair

Manjit Mandair, Housing Solicitor in the Housing and Social department assisted an exceptional vulnerable client whose landlord wanted possession of his home due to his inability to keep his property tidy. As a result of our intervention Social Services carried out an assessment of his needs and a plan was put into place for our client to receive assistance in redecorating his property, for a carpet to be laid and the walls painted. A worker was allocated to come and help him clean the property regularly to avoid this matter reoccurring.

Manjit says “This is a good example of ensuring that both housing and Social services Departments work together to ensure that whenever possible a tenant should be supported to allow them to continue to live in the community independently…with joined up work it is possible to come up with solutions that can not only improve the quality of the life for an individual it can help save costs for the local authority in the long run”.
