ico2Blog: Squatters evicted from doctor's house invade new property just minutes away

A group of squatters evicted from the new home of a neurologist and his heavily pregnant wife yesterday (Wednesday 7 September) have moved into a basement flat 300 yards away.

The squatters left Dr Oliver Cockerell and his wife Kaltun's West Hampstead home after the District Court granted the couple an eviction notice, despite their legal team failing to follow correct procedure.

ico9Community: Landlord wants to evict me over property repairs

Question: What can I do to get my landlord to fix the repairs in my home or what legal action can I take against him if he doesn't repair the property?

Discussion: If you have asked your landlord to carry out the repair, you should give him a 'reasonable' amount of time to do so - this is usually around 28 days. If he has not done so within this time, you could take you case to the County Court.

You should be careful about deciding to take legal action and if you do plan to, you really should seek expert legal advice from a solicitor. Also, do not withhold rent to cover the repairs, this is a surefire way to get evicted.
