Notable Cases

Ben acted and successfully obtained an Outright Possession Order for a Registered Provider on a matter where a tenant had been involved in an attempted burglary of a neighbouring property. Although yet to be convicted both Ben and the Trust’s thorough and timely actions resulted in a positive and successful result.

Ben effectively obtained an Injunction Order, power of arrest and Exclusion Order against the son who was the perpetrator of serious domestic violence against his mother. Despite the tenant being unwilling to provide evidence and serious concerns of any legal proceedings. Ben successfully obtained an Injunction excluding the son from the tenant’s property and therefore protecting them from any further domestic violence.

Ben and a Registered Provider successfully obtained a Suspended Possession Order together with strict terms in order to confidently ensure the safety of its tenants following an assault of one of its residents. These terms allowed for residents to be able to again enjoy their homes and their communal arrears.
