    Tv documentary series offering help to people who hoard

    this is a bit of a different one - but our aim is to help people and so I hope my post will be taken in the spirit its intended.

    I am currently working on a TV programme which aims to help people who either hoard or are over keen collectors. We are looking for people where their hoarding has started to take over their lives and homes and they would benefit from some expert help.

    This documentary series takes a therapeutic approach to hoarding, whilst offering a unique and tailored treatment programme, combined with a specialist de-cluttering service. It’s very positive and will show how hoarding affects lives, whilst exploring this often misunderstood condition and helping to de-clutter at the same time.

    If this is you or you know someone who hoards, please get in touch.

    Please post this post in residential lettings as well if not already done so. Replies should be mostly helpful
    Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

      There is an article about hoarders and the Court of Protection's involvement in Brethertons latest newsletter here:

        I think you will find that many hoarders ,do not realise that they hoard and are unlikely to respond to your post. The worst case scenario's often have experienced a severe truama in their life.

          Actually saving money in a bank account is a form of 'hoarding' and most people seemed to have been 'cured' of this particular form. Even the Labour Party cleaned out most accounts and all that valueless gold they were hoarding, whilst putting the nation in hock through PFI.

            That sounds brilliant. When you finish with it can you send me a copy on DVD?

            I collect DVDs.

                Define 'hoard'!

                  Tenants. Moving back in won't change that.

                  Hi all.
                  I bought a house, lived in it for a few months, then had friends ask me if they could move in as had to leave their property and were struggling to find somewhere with their dog. I agreed and drew up lodging agreement and they moved in.
                  Unfortunately our dogs did not get on, and...

                  If that were so straightforwardly the case then I would easily be able to a secure a tenancy for my friend's daughter (D) who has zero credit rating, and zero ability to pay rent.

                  I would take a 6M tenancy myself, immediately grant a 4 year tenancy at quarter my original rent to D, let...

                  Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

                  I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

                  by alice123
                  I'm sorry you are in this situation , from what i have heard from someone these 'no win no fee' type of 'solicitors' take a massive chunk out of any claim for their own fees , which would leave your tenant with rather less money that he/she would have anticipated.

                  One of the reasons why...

                  The term lawful here applies to private landlord. It's a term that does not just exist within the Housing Act 1988, but also Rent Act 1977, and probably other places. In this context, it basically means as the Shelter page summarised, did the mesne tenant have permission to sublet. That section of the...

                  This is a good point..... also, not wishing to tempt fate, but with the increase in Covid type restrictions is it beyond thinking that we may have another xmas ban on evictions ???? I do not believe it is needed but you know what the lefties are like....

                  A tenant has refused to leave the property at the end of her tenancy and has now asked to be evicted as in her words 'that will make her eligible for a council house'.

                  this is not a great time to try to get possession, I would recommend that you tolerate them a bit longer. The Judge is not going to be sympathetic and besides these cases are going to take a long time to come to Court.
