yes. thats right
alright. thank you
I also want to say that I have moved in, and after 3month this couple have let my girlfriend to share the room with me under circumstance that we have paid 800 together for the room, where I was paying 630 for myself.
The worst is, none of us would thought that something might goes wrong, they have two kids, one is 2,5years and the other is just a new born baby. So you can imagine sharing the house with so many strangers and having two kids is not easy and something just not right about it. Most important is that we have found place through an agency and we move out soon.. But what she is demanding is causing us problems.
Also, fact that she has demand money in cash from everybody and then walking around the house like its her own.. having two kids, not working.. there is too many of possibilities whether or not she is claiming on kids or housing benefits or whatever else you can claim these days I dont know.. Because of her recent attitude it starts bothering me.
its a big family house
Thank you very much for your advice, I have found it to be very useful "ammunition' to get a compromise and I don't really think she is going to be so positive after next conversation we are going to have.
alright, thank you
Hi there. I have a related follow up to my recent enquiry.
My girl has been in local council and spoke up, they have found out that house is known as family house, its not registered as House of Multiple Occupation as you have advised me and they are looking into it, further investigation of benefits fraud and tax avoiding is in progress.
On the other hand, as I've mentioned we don't have any tenancy documentation, we've been threatened of eviction. I've been speaking with the owner of the house on the phone, she introduced herself as the real owner and as the good friend of the couple. She also told me that if Oleksandra doesn't feel comfortable and she is demanding that my girl has to leave the property by 24.june, she must obey.
I am really worried that its a no win. I trust my feelings knowing there is something wrong, but I dont really know what else we can do from here.
We've spoken police, even though they've told us that without any documentation or written tenancy agreement we can't do much. Unless some kind of force will take a place, then police will act, but till the moment is only a word of mouth.
On the other hand, citizen advice bureau advised us to accuse her of anti-social behaviour and harassment because of her acts on the house. No matter what hour it is, everybody has to be quite. You cant even listen to a radio in the kitchen while cooking because she sleeps all the time, and her baby too. Just yesterday she entered my room without saying a word while i wasn't around and she has put my bicycle pump which I've stored under the stairs in hallway into my room because she were reorganising the space there and she didn't like it. After I've found out, I went knock on her door and asked what is all that about. What right she has to walk in my room just like that, she refused to talk to me and she said if I keep interrupting her she is going to call the police. She said her baby sleeps and if I scared her baby in her house she will cause us more problems.
It is so much more to it, she keeps adding nonsense, she is complete threat using her kids against us.
What can happen if my girl is not going to move out on monday. Can she force her out? Will police get involved and will she has to leave after all anyway? I don't really know what to do. Its getting worse everyday.
Well we didn't move in together, but yes, when she moved in and we start to live together rent went up, and it was part of a deal.
On the other hand, because its ongoing from 12th of this month, she only let her stay till the day the rent has been paid, which is 24th june and then she doesn't want to see her in the property anymore. She can actually leave her belongings behind till day i move out which is 21st, I've been told. But she cannot come back, not even for the visit.
Please, is there little bit more you can advise me on this so we can sort it out for good. I do understand that its civil matter so police hasn't got nothing to do with it, but what if they say she stays in the house illegally. That she has been kicked out, but she is still there. Can police force us out? Its silly, but i just want to get clear picture of what consequences it might have bring.
