Kensington Housing Trust: THEY KNEW ...


Time is running out - but for who? Kensington Housing Trust officers are telling residents that if they do not accept the decants or permanent homes they are offered, they will be EVICTED. I predicted this in an earlier blog. (OK, I'm not psychic, this was LEAKED to me.) Many residents are very very scared. One resident has had a stroke, which is no surprise because the officers can be plain NASTY, even when a witness is present. One resident was told 'we will get the police and throw you out of your house'.

They are saying residents will get a Notice of Seeking Possession and get taken to court to be evicted, and they even put this in a recent Wornington News even though THEY KNEW that parts of the planning application are being redesigned and have to go back to Planning in September. So no one needs to leave their home until later in the year earliest, IF everything goes according to their plan. THEY KNEW that residents do not have to leave yet, there is no hurry, but they published ridiculous timelines stating they should be out by end July.

THEY KNEW this was not true.

But the joke may be on KHT. They have already had some of the funds from the Homes and Communities Agency towards Phase 1a, but this is only half the money they need to start, and the new government is slashing funding. THEY MIGHT NOT GET ANY MORE MONEY.

  1. It’s so sad that KHT have decided to set tenant against tenant in their latest newsletter. They’ve used an anonymous tenant who feels that people who like the idea of refurbishment ‘need to understand what we’re going through.’ Who can blame her? Her ‘walls move when you touch them. It’s going to be a requirement to wear hard hats in our homes soon.’ She must feel desperately unsafe in a home that any other landlord would urgently evacuate her from and I sincerely hope she calls in Health and Safety to demand that KHT move her and her neighbours immediately. As she says, safe homes are the priority and it’s shameful that she hasn’t been moved from her home to one of the many empty flats in Peplar. But I suppose getting Munro Mews empty is more important to KHT than the safety of a family in a home where walls move.
