Normally you hear Soho Housing Association tenants views through "independent" assessors, who then go on to join the board of Soho Housing Association. Get the truth, direct from a tenant, here.

Soho Housing Association, breaking into your flat 2

ImageSince I was reluctantly and tardily released from the mental asylum, Soho Housing Association has not stopped trying to put me back in there, and, since I have started this blog, Soho Housing Association has redoubled its efforts to put me away and steal my flat from me.

Incredibly, they are using exactly the same methods, corrupt tenants and corrupt departments of Westminster Council that they used before!

I received a letter from one such department, whose officer has invited himself to my flat. If I don’t let him in, he will break in, but he ends the letter, cheerily, “See you next Thursday”.

Here is my reply:

Sir,

 

Regarding your proposal to make an informal visit to my flat on 25th April.

 

I do not engage in informal arrangements with officers of Westminster Council.

 

I will be seeing my solicitor today, Tuesday and we will send a formal reply to your proposal, which will be copied to your supervisor, Steve Harrison. If you are unwilling to wait to receive the reply that we will send to your letter, and are determined to obtain a warrant of entry, please make sure that warrant is lawfully obtained, and not by perjury, as was the case with the last warrant obtained by Westminster Council. I am at present engaged in seeking redress from George Christian, the officer who unlawfully obtained it.

 

I look forward to not seeing you next Thursday.

 

At the last break-in by Soho Housing Association, which ended with my indefinite incarceration in the asylum, I also arranged to see a solicitor. Somehow, it seems that Soho Housing Association found out the date that I was to see the solicitor and they broke in the day before. How did they find out? Perhaps their favourite tenants, who work in the Metropolitan Police Service tipped them off.

 

Soho Housing Association: breaking into your flat

breakAlthough Soho Housing Association is always inviting itself to visit you in your flat, it does not like to be seen as breaking into its tenants’ flats. However, break-ins do occur and as the flats cannot be accessed without the co-operation of Soho Housing Association, it is safe to say that they aid and abet these break-ins.

My life as a tenant of Soho Housing Association has been marked by a continuous threat that my home will be broken into by contractors or other associates of Soho Housing Association and on three occasions this has actually happened. The most recent occasion was the time when Soho Housing Association applied to have me imprisoned indefinitely in a mental  hospital. The time before that, my flat was broken into by Westminster Council, again with the connivance of Soho Housing Association.  Before that, Soho Housing Association allowed Westminster City Police to break into my flat on an obviously fake warrant.

Apart from the actual break-ins listed above,    I have suffered numerous events of people purporting to be contractors for Soho Housing Association, banging on my door or ringing my doorbell in an intimidating fashion. I was terrorised by one particular contractor, who bore a strong resemblance to a police officer who had been involved in a previous break-in. This person would turn on his electric drill and stand outside my front door with it. The sound was reminiscent of the sound made by the locksmith when he breaks into my flat on their behalf. They always employ the same locksmith. He seems very enthusiastic about his work and it must earn him a good living.

Soho Housing Association, kangaroo courts

11385415-kangaroo-road-sign-with-australia-mapNaturally when a tenant is having problems with their landlord, they try to seek help.

Soho Housing Association provides a number of avenues that a tenant may use to try to redress the problems that they acquire as a result of being a tenant of Soho Housing Association. Without exception they are tortuous and time consuming and the tenant will normally find that the avenue leads them to a blind alley.

In my case, my first resource, when I found I had problems with Soho Housing Association, was to seek solidarity with other tenants. I heard there was a Soho Housing Tenants Association, so that was my first port of call.

Imagine my dismay, when, on my first attendance, I found that the Chairperson of the tenants association was none other than the wife  of the Soho Housing Association Board member who had been watching my flat! I had no choice but to try to put my case before the other tenants, but by looks and facial expressions, the Chairperson made it clear to them that they were not expected to take what I said seriously. I wasted a lot of time attending these tenant meetings, and, at the end, my situation was worse than when I began.

There was apparently, another channel open to me. This was the Soho Housing Association Residents Forum, but that turned out to be a kangaroo court, in which tenants were encouraged, not to complain against Soho Housing Association, but to voice unfounded accusations against their neighbours, ( for instance, so and so is a drug dealer), presumably for the delectation of the listening plain clothes police officers, also tenants, who attended these meetings.
