Hi

I have taken Barnsley metropolitan Borough Council to the small claims court for loss of rent due to advice given that I believe breaches both the housing act and the homelessness guide. I have served a section 21 and a section 8 on a tenant. This meant that they were with in 28 days of being made homeless. The council informed them that they must stay in the property until I have a possession order. They did not contact the landlord ( they did the agent ) who told them we wanted them pout as they were over 2 months in arrears and had been in arrears for over 6 months

Im just waiting for the court date now as Barnsley have moved to strike the claim. Have you any support information or case law that you are aware of that I can use on top om my claim bundle that I have put together please
Regards
