A Rugen made this Freedom of Information request to Haringey Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Haringey Borough Council,

I am seeking information on your procedures and reasons for evicting tenants from council property and how this is affected by the tenant’s mental or physical health issues.
You are obliged to rehouse tenants, again how are the conditions which compromise their health addressed when providing new accommodation.
I am particularly interested in those suffering from mental health conditions which may mean they cannot fully engage with the council or comprehend why they have to quit their home.

Yours faithfully,

A Rugen

will support perpetrators of anti-social behaviour to help sustain a
tenancy and avoid eviction

evictions however, I can confirm that we are in the process of drafting a
