I was last week called by a gentleman from my housing association about being decanted. I was very shocked and felt put on the spot and he was a bit taken a back why no one in my housing association had said anything. This is to do with an on going problem i have had for nearly 2 years to do with damp and mould in my property. So far i have now had 3 surveyors out and i have been asking continually for my housing to keep me informed of what is going on which time and tie again they do not. I was told by this guy my housing estates manager should have spoken to me well no one did. The property they wanted me to move to was to far from my children s school and i dont drive so i had to say no but also i have been told nothing about what repairs need doing. I spoke to the ombudsman who is also in shock as no one has informed her either about whats going on or the environmental health. All the manger of complains can say is that sh was off for a week and she passed it over to whomever to continue forward in her absence and they should have contacted me hmm pass the buck much!! What i want to know is should a housing association have a decant policy? What is involved in this? and can a decant be permanent? The reason i ask is yes i have had enough of all of this its been going on for to long but also they do not think about the effects and how my older daughter who is 5 gets affected. She hates change has been under pediatrician ,occu health ,speach n language etc. I have to prepare her and make sure it is managed well for her its just very up in the air and we are not happy at how its been going on.
