States eviction tenant hits back at Housing
A WOMAN who is due to be evicted from her States home has hit back at Housing's recent clampdown on under-occupied properties, saying that the department needs to pay closer attention to personal circumstances.
The 52-year-old, who does not want to be named, has been served an eviction notice that will take effect on 4 January. She lives with her dog at Clos de Roncier in St Clement in a three-bedroom home and has been asked to move to a smaller property to free the house up for those in need of larger accommodation.
Earlier this week the JEP revealed that the Housing department had served eviction notices to three people recently.
But the woman, a care worker, said that she had pleaded with Housing to be moved for the last six years. In that time she has turned down four smaller States homes and says that the department has not offered her accommodation which includes an outside space for her 14-year-old border collie.
