I'm so sorry this is happening to you. Have you called Shelter ( sorry I can't link). Best of luck!

Well, if you were in arrears before an eviction a month ago, it can hardly be a bedroom tax issue as that hadn't come in then.

Where have to been living in the last month? Shelter may well be able to help you, as might CAB in sorting out if the HA are holding your property illegally. AM I right in assuming these are items left in the property after the eviction date? (I don't see how HA could have control of them otherwise).

Hi dyslex thanks and meditrina. It was arreas issue but was paying weekly and missed my payments 2x and payed late so they have me a eviction date, i have 3 children who currently live with there father due to some personal problems and because i had 2extra rooms it was a extra 80 a month i moved out on the 24th april and said unless i can pay it in full (arreas) then how am i ever going to ne able to pay bedroom tax i went to court with uptodate payments although not the full amount. But even so i understand there are parents who. Need the house but i had no support in downsizing and now staying with a friend. But surley they cant keep my furniture? ?
