  3. When we had eviction notice from the council we also received a bill for nearly £49000 for repairs needed but this morning we were told by the support officer that now we don't have to pay it...... very very strange

    Maybe they have realised they actually owe you and it’s all a game to hide this and instead make you feel fortunate not to owe them...

    Maybe they have served wrong notices or procedures to evict you.
    Get above in writing as stated asap
    Don't move out.
    Do NOT sign anything .
    THEN take legal advice asap as they may have to pay you compo etc ???

    There will be obligations on both sides under a lease. If they haven't done theirs, they can hardly insist that you should have done yours.

    Leases are like manuals. Very boring and seeming unnecessary, until something goes wrong! Get a professional who knows his job.

  10. Yes it is for so called delapidation and I have passed on the message stating that I want it in writing and signed by the council lawyer but I have my doubts that it will happen

    Have a look in your files for the Schedule of Condition when you began your tenancy. You really need advice from someone qualified to fight this kind of claim against you.

    Get on to Council Legal dept.
    De Lap as called Decapitation is a calculation for state farm left in.
    ie ,gaps in hedges , roads, buildings etc.etc to when you took it on.
    You then claim residual fertilizers values to lands if you improved it etc ,grass ,crops ,etc.
    Often the one side ,cancells the other out.
    Maybe this is what they spotted somewhere too?

    Under freedom of information you should be allowed to see the file the council hold regarding your tenancy.
    This will tell you what records they have.

    When the council were playing clever gits when we were leaving the farm it transpired that they didn't have any records from the early years where as we had so they couldn't substantiate the claim for delapidations but we could.

    Dilapidations can only be claimed if there is a record of condition LODGED with the secretary of state.

    So if you havent dilapidated, they cant evict you
     
  16. Suggest instruct an agent to act on your behalf there are plenty around acting for Tenants who won’t charge the Earth. No doubt the Council have a Surveyor dealing with this too who will be used to dealing with Surveyors on the Tenants side.
    If you do use an agent it shows you are taking this seriously ( I’m sure you are) and are looking to resolve this.
    Also ihaving an agent removes some of the mental strain from this ie let them deal with the correspondence.
