We requested a review of the suitability of a client’s temporary accommodation on the basis that it was wholly unaffordable to her. Following our letter, we received a call from the Local Authority stating that they were aware that the rent was unaffordable and they did not expect the tenants to meet the full rent, just what they can afford to pay. As of 2nd July 2018, they have successfully renegotiated their agreement with the housing providers and the rent has been significantly reduced. They are also agreeing to write off all of the arrears to date. This makes the property now affordable to our client who is understandably relieved and overjoyed. Another win for our clients from our fabulous housing team!
