    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.

                  That's not the same thing, though.

                  A section 21 notice accelerated possession claim is one that can proceed without a hearing (although that doesn't always happen). It is a specific process that you elect to follow (or not).

                  A section 8 notice will always have a hearing, because...

                  by imranpal
                  Is it possible to exercise accelerated possession using section 8 ?

                  My solicitor is advising to go with accelerated possession to evict the tenant and once we have court order we can file another court case to collect the rent arrears .

                  i was in impression that accelerated...

                  As a LL who uses a letting agent, I like to look around my properties occasionally in order to ascertain whether I need to be doing anything - I find my views and the agent's often differ! There is no reason to be particularly alarmed by this - I would see it as an opportunity to raise any issues with...

                  Thank you both. I have now read up about it.

                  As far as I can see, there are a number of risks to both the resident guardian and the guardianship company. The former (ostensibly) has very few rights and may end up living in a substandard or even dangerous property; the latter risks getting...

                  as per this blog it is possible If the tenant falls behind with rent, the landlord can repossess the property and cut their losses. After you miss to pay 2 months of rent, the landlord is eligible to use an accelerated possession procedure. If proven the court will grant the order immediately.

                  There is no accelerated possession with section 8.

                  I think your solicitor is suggesting using section 21 to obtain possession and then making a separate claim for the money the tenant (presumably) owes.

                  That would be the advice of many people here, provided that you can serve...

                  It may be that the LL is making sure the LA is doing their job with their property, rather than checking up on you. Is there any reason you don't want both of them looking at the same time, I would have thought it was more efficient then each come separately.

                  Just bear in mind, when you are served notice, and don't leave, the LL/ LA will then move towards the courts, once this happens all the costs will then be on the T.

                  Your best solution is to communicate with the LL/LA as well as search for alternative accommodation, you will have up to 2...

                  Many thanks all for your reply. Yeah there is nothing on the market at all really, nightmare.

                  I assume they wish to serve me with a S21 immediately as they gave me 7 days to respond which would tie in with S21 being served two months before my tenancy even ends.
