Due to my landlord defaulting on her mortgage I have had an eviction notice giving me until the 14th March to vacate. I have an appointment with Swindon County Court on the 9th March where I hope that the judge will grant me an extra month in the property. However, I was advised by the CAB and the mortgage lenders solicitors that I needn't have gone to court as the mortgage company would nearly always grant a 2 month "grace" period in order for me to find alternative accommodation. I then received a phone call from the mortgage lenders solicitor informing me that they will not grant me an extension due to the fact that the let was unauthorised by the lender. I blame Belvoir totally for this. Why was this not checked at the time of letting!? Furthermore, I viewed a property with Belvoir last Saturday and as the office was closed on the Sunday I emailed the office informing them of my intention to proceed. I learned today that I have lost this property to another party. The office manager did not return my calls. Belvoir have taken away the only true alternative that I had. When I meet with the judge on Wednesday next week I will enquire as to what recourse I have against Belvoir for their negligence in their thoroughness of their landlord search and I promise that I will do everything that I can to make sure that I am compensated for by Belvoir for making me potentially homeless and for completely turning my life upside down.
