Scammed into subletting
I moved into a property with my 3 children one of them being autistic I had all my checks done via the housing manager or so I thought paid a deposit and rent also received a 2 year fixed tenancy agreement settled in my new home which I had decorated and made our house a home I had been in the property a month and received a knock on the door from a housing association telling me I was not supposed to be in the property and the previous tenant had scammed me and subletted the property and it turns out they was aware for months that she was not living in the property and was currently going threw court proceedings to evict her the ex tenant had been harassing me for the rent claiming she is still the landlord she even turned up outside the property demanding rent and being threatening toward me I called the police who never turned up I feel like I was let down by the police and the housing association and Bromley council I am now being evicted from the property and bullied by Bromley council to accept there offer of a temporary accommodation out of the borough that I tried so hard to move to for my children are settled in a school they have been in since nursery one of them being in her last year or school sitting exams and one on the SEN pathway. I feel like I’m trying my best for my children and now I’m being made to feel like a criminal when I was the victim in all this!
