Housing Associations Send Pre-emptive S-21s to Tenants on Benefits

Genesis is Haringey, Newlon Housing Trust, A2 Dominion in Ealing, and Notting Hill Housing Trust have all served notice to tenants they expect to be affected by the benefit cap. From the article:

A2 Dominion’s purpose is clear – to be able to obtain vacant possession simply by applying for a warrant of eviction – ahead of anticipated arrears. Ealing is not one of the benefit cap pilot boroughs, so A2 Dominion brought proceedings at least 7 months ahead of the benefit cap coming into effect.

Please go read the rest of the article. It’s appalling behaviour, but unfortunately not surprising given the current state of tenancies in the UK.
