THANKS TO LEGAL AID, a severely disabled man is staying in his home

noun_Superhero_550572I represented a severely disabled man who had both mental ill health and spina bifida.

His social landlord had accused him of anti-social behaviour and was seeking an injunction, with power of arrest if he breached the injuction. If the injuction was granted, the landlord would then be able to get possession of the property and the judge would have to make a possession order.

THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I was able to examine the allegations against my client and get an expert report which confirmed that, because of his spina bifida, he could not have done what he was accused of doing by the landlord. The housing association agreed to withdraw the injuction application and were convinced that the allegations were coming from a disgruntled neighbour.
