Hey Everyone 
I'm not to good at this but just wanted to say hello x

Anyway I'm writing this for a friend she's confined in me about her housing. The thing is she has been given a eviction letter from nch if she doesn't pay so much by 1st sept they already have taken her to court. They already take rent plus she has to pay extra each month as she been in arrears. This is from 2018. She has kept it to herself and said nothing to no one apart from me recently . She knows it's effecting her health but she didn't want to worry her partner who has to go back n forth to hospital. Few times a week. He has cancer and his kidneys are failing.he had spepis recently too. She knows  It's not good as s she looks after him . My friend jus found out she has breast cancer. She told no one. She has already had mini stroke last year. Anyway I know it's alot but back to nch. Can they evict her n partner?  She is 63 and her partner is but older. I just want to let her know where she stands as she going through so much already. She been in house 15 years

    Yes they can evict, especially because they've already taken her to court. I'd advise her to contact shelter and they will be able to advise her. https://www.shelter.org.uk/

    I would also advise her to contact Macmillan cancer support and ask them for a full benefits check, they are extremely helpful. https://www.macmillan.org.uk/about-us/contact-us

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
