MAY APPLETON SONS: URGENT UPDATE: PLEASE READ THE APPEAL TO WEAVER VALE HOUSING TRUST 2 DEC. 2016

 

may10“Hi everyone,

Weaver Vale have today admitted to seeking to evict May Appleton’s sons. Therefore, I have submitted this letter, along with petition links to them by email (hardcopy to follow) today.  I think we have to show them that their behaviour as a housing trust is not acceptable!  Here is the letter:

2nd December 2016

Dear Mr Jennings,

I am writing to you concerning one of your tenant families. The family is The APPLETONS –  Langford Road, Lostock Gralam, Northwich, CW9 7QR. I have their full permission to speak to you about their appalling case.

 You evicted this family from their property of 61 years after May Appleton had already applied to buy their house under the ‘Right-to’Buy’ scheme. You said it was because of ‘anti-social behaviour’. May was 87 and died in the temporary accommodation you found for them. She was very stressed due to the nature of the eviction and seeing her beloved collections thrown about and stamped on. The damage in the house was considerable. The damage to these vulnerable people has caused long-standing problems.

You were forced to let the Appleton sons return to the house despite your efforts to prevent it. You refused to allow them to retain the tenancy their mum had for so long probably due to the fact that this would retain the ‘right-to-buy’. You refused to allow them even a new tenancy but you stressed that they must continue to pay over £100 a week rent, despite having no contract.

 You have just stated, in a letter to these vulnerable people, that you intend to attempt to evict them again.

Despite using the excuse of a hoarding issue, your behaviour towards this family has been nothing short of bullying. They are all vulnerable members of society that a ‘trust’ like yours is supposed to protect. If you succeed in this eviction, you will have three people who have never known another home, one of which with mental health issues….all of which, severely stressed. And you will have made them ALL homeless. It can be argued that your bullying helped cause the death of their mother. Is that the way a ‘housing trust’ should behave?

I am enclosing links to two petitions signed by people all over the world appalled at your stance against this family. The first one was started when May was still alive. The second is far more recent and is picking up speed fast.

 https://www.you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/weaver-vale-housing-trust-let-may-appleton-s-sons-buy

 Four national newspapers are interested in taking up this story and I am in touch with BBC North, who covered May’s funeral. I implore you to let this family continue with the process May started and let them buy their home.  They are now in receipt of their inheritance from May – which is what she put aside to try and secure their home before she died.  You have all the figures.  You will lose money on the sale because they have been paying rent for 61 years.  However, the property would need considerable work to make it rentable and the publicity you will get for treating this vulnerable family so disgustingly will also need to be taken into account.

PLEASE give this family a happy ending and let this be the subject of this story all over the media instead of the shameful way they have been treated so far.

PLEASE KEEP SIGNING AND SHARING THE PETITION!

 SHOCKING VICTIMISATION + ABUSE OF PROCESS! “WEAVER VALE HOUSING TRUST – Let May Appleton’s sons BUY!” 29 Nov. 2016

Please sign this petition regarding allowing the sons of May Appleton to buy their former home – they are being refused their right to buy their home after their mother made provision for this to happen years ago – the price for the house was set then, but they are now being refused their right to buy. Shameful.

May Appleton, 87, died in a “Travelodge” hotel-type b+b joint a short time after being brutally evicted from her home of 61 years on 23 March 2016 by characters who thought they were hard men – paid “heavies” who were totally intimidating towards a very elderly lady and her sons, who have health problems, causing damage to both the home and May’s keepsakes during this sordid and brutal eviction – see the pics below. May and her sons had already had loads of cr-p from this housing trust, and others, eg. after being told they could buy the property, then the promise was renaged upon. Some “Housing Trust” this is!!

WEAVER VALE HOUSING TRUST - Let May Appleton's sons BUY!

Allow May Appleton’s sons to buy her home.

Why is this important?

Weaver Vale Housing Trust forcibly evicted 87 year old May Appleton from her home. We believe the shock killed her. She died in the temporary accommodation she was made to stay in. Before she died, she had been trying exercise her right to buy their house. Weaver Vale don’t want to sell because the house would go to these tenants of 60+ years at a cheap price. Weaver Vale have used tenant hoarding as an excuse to victimise them and throw them out. They are determined to hound this family out!

Sign the petition  https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/weaver-vale-housing-trust-let-may-appleton-s-sons-buy

May’s sons suffer from varying degrees of mental and nervous illnesses. Two are retired and one is long term sick and under psychiatric outpatient care. They have suffered severely since their mother died and are now threatened with losing their home. Their mother has made provision for them to buy the house at the rate quoted to her years ago. Weaver Vale’ a housing trust’!, would prefer to put them on the streets.

  • This is completely heartless behaviour towards vulnerable people by the housing trust. What do they expect will happen to these men if they are evicted? They will be imposing another death sentence. They should be charged with manslaughter after their actions led to May’s death.

DESPICABLE MAY APPLETON [R.I.P.] EVICTION involving “WEAVER VALE HOUSING TRUST”: UPDATE 26 Nov. 2016

Updates

3 days ago

Thank you to everyone who supported this petition and I would love to tell you that everything worked out and there was a happy ending. It didn’t and it hasn’t. Weaver Vale Housing Trust are determined to turn May’s sons out of the property and have continued to hound them. Due to fund-raising by the public and any money the sons had they have hired a solicitor who has, so far, failed to win the right for the sons to continue with the ‘right-to-buy’ request that May started. The solicitor is now asking for more money before she carries on. I think it’s time that public support took over and we demanded the right to allow May’s sons to use their inheritance to buy the house their mother started to buy and which resulted in the hounding of the family and May’s death in a Travelodge. I am using this and the original petition to raise this again in the media. I am going to open a facebook page I will post the link here later. Please help. SIGN & SHARE and watch the media

Weaver Vale Housing Trust forcibly evicted an 87 year old woman on the grounds that she hoards. They have no right to tell people how to live in their own homes. She earned the right to buy this property after living there for 61 years and NEVER missing a day’s rent. Nevertheless, once May Appleton asked to buy her home, Weaver Vale started to pester her because all the family collect things and the house was cluttered. 
May was eventually FORCIBLY evicted and placed in a Travelodge with her three sons until the stress killed her.  Her sons have a variety of mental health needs and are suffering significant signs of stress.  They were allowed back into their home after a judge had demanded May be given back her rent book just before she died.  They were starting to clear the home and get over the death of their mother when an eviction order was served on them. 
Nothing has been sorted yet concerning still purchasing the house as all their inheritance has not been released yet and a solicitor is still fighting their case.  The solicitor has quoted £3000 for her services.  More details at the original petition site here….

25 July 16: MAY APPLETON: URGENT UPDATE: SOLICITOR NEEDED ASAP + ARCHIVE

may9
Above: May Appleton, R.I.P.
25 JULY – URGENT UPDATE – PLEASE READ – WE NEED YOUR HELP!

If there are ANY solicitors out there PLEASE contact me.  There has been a terrible update to this story.  As you know, May lived in the property for 61 years.  Her sons were born and brought up there.  When May asked to buy the property, her hoarding suddenly became a problem to WEAVER VALE housing and within a short time, she was evicted.   I believe the stress KILLED her.  She was worrying about her home and her three sons who are vulnerable.   After the funeral, Weaver Vale dumped all of the stuff that had been in storage back in the house.  I saw it.  It was scattered everywhere.  The sons were upset to see May’s broken dolls just strewn around.  NONE OF THE WORK THEY PROMISED TO DO HAD BEEN DONE! 
Worse to come.  The sons have started to sort through the stuff and even sell some.  They are making good progress.  Then, today, someone came to ‘talk about the tenancy and where they would go from here’.  However, when they got there, it was really to serve eviction orders! 
They are to be thrown out on 22nd August!  PLEASE, if there are any solicitors/lawyers/media out there could you contact me.  May’s sons need help now and urgently!

Dear Friends
May has NOT returned home yet, despite what has been reported in the media.
She is quite distressed and still at the Travelodge. Negotiations are ongoing, Weaver Vale Housing Trust spoke to May and then told the press it was all sorted. Even if she is allowed to return to her home, her stuff has been moved out and she will be upset by that.
PLEASE SIGN IF YOU HAVENT ALREADY, AND KEEP SHARING THIS PETITION UNTIL MAY HAS BEEN OFFERED THE CHANCE TO BUY HER HOME AND FEEL SAFE. THANK YOU!

REAL? EVICTED MAY APPLETON TO RETURN HOME?  27 MARCH 2016

Evicted hoarder May Appleton offered chance to return to home in Lostock Gralam by Weaver Vale Housing Trust

BREAKING: Evicted hoarder, 87-year-old May Appleton, will be allowed to move back into her house

Rachel Howarth, Reporter / 4 hours ago / News

Published 4 hours ago / News

HOARDER May Appleton has been told she will be allowed to move back home only three days after being evicted.

The 87-year-old, and her three sons, met with officials from Weaver Vale Housing Trust on Saturday.

They were told they can return to the house on Langford Road, in Lostock Gralam, once it is safe.

“We have offered Mrs Appleton an opportunity to return as soon as practically possible,” said trust chief executive Steve Jennings in a statement.

“That is subject to the house being made safe and for some items to be placed in storage in line with previous requests made to the family.”

May, who has lived in the house for 61 years, left on Wednesday after bailiffs smashed down the front and back doors.

Sons Brian, Mark and Paul were told to leave at the same time.

They have been locked in a three-year battle with the trust, which acts as their landlord, over possessions the trust claims are a fire hazard.

“We are pleased the family and Weaver Vale Housing Trust have started this dialogue,” added Mr Jennings.

“We now hope to work together to resolve the difficulties at the house.”

He said the family is considering an offer of alternative local accommodation in the meantime.

Please take note:

I, Mr. John Graham, will pay a payment of £500 immediately, which may continue, towards this old lady’s return to her home.

What is happening to this old lady and her family is completely unacceptable.

 How would Weaver Vale employees, or council employees, or even MPs like to be evicted from their homes at the age of 87? Theyed cry like babies, but as council affiliated along the line, nothing like this would happen to them or their family members anyway and they would in no way be evicted as theyre all chums!!!!! Truly outrageous!!

I am not looking for any medals, but this should not be happening to the elderly lady, especially when, for example, bankers award £billions in bonuses, as they did recently = http://news.sky.com/story/1641137/uks-big-four-banks-to-award-5bn-bonus-pot . It is truly disgusting!!

For example, when do the authorities in this case expect Ms. Appleton and family to return to their former home?

It is now the 14 April as I write – why is the family’s return taking so long?

I write on behalf of very concerned parties regarding the situation Ms. Appleton and family find themselves in, and we look forward to your speedy reply.

Dear Ms. S—-,

Thank you for your swift reply, and the information within that reply, particularly:  https://www.wvht.co.uk/latest-news/trust-responds-to-coverage-of-appleton-family-eviction-541 

The “information” contained within the text that link is relating to is, of course, very much only one side of the coin, so to speak, regarding the situation Ms. Appleton, 87, and her family find themselves in regarding their enforced eviction from the home Ms. Appleton has been residing in for 61 years, sadly. What would be nice would be if a more honest assessment could be provided, which has not only “Weaver Vale Housing Trust”‘s statements but also the views and opinions of the people that have been forcibly –  and dare I say, extremely brutally evicted from their home of 61 years – Ms. Appleton and her siblings.

I may say also that I, and the many good citizens I have been in contact with [and still am in contact with from the past 5 years] have seen firsthand how town councils and the like have got away with an infinite number of clear and concise irregularities to do with subjects who have had the misfortune to have had to have contact with them to do with various matters – and not only in the courts. So, bearing that in mind, I’m sure you’ll be the first to agree that what we’re seeing via these “statements” is only a tip of a quite large iceberg of allegations relating to this eviction, totally omitting Ms. Appleton’s view of procedures and events that have, allegedly, taken place.

 

I have been told in previous communications that the home of Ms. Appleton is being prepared for the family’s return to it. Can you please inform us why, as I write on the 18 April, the family has not returned to their home as surely the time taken from their eviction date up till today is more than ample enough time to get a few rooms ready for living in again? Or is the matter going much deeper than simply the refurbishing of a few rooms, and Ms. Appleton and her siblings have upset you so much that a completely different agenda is really at play here – one not at all connected to this family returning to their home, but, rather, the complete opposite?

 

I don’t know if you are aware, but I was so appalled at what I understood to be the actual eviction of this elderly lady and her siblings that I am still offering to pay an amount towards a situation that sees the return of this lady, 87, and her siblings, to their home. That is: I, a person who has managed to save from his disability benefits over a long time, relating to terminal ailments – is prepared to give money towards a family’s return home, whereas the people connected to the evicting in the first place, have literally unlimited funds.

 

And, whats more, I feel I should say that my offer is not because I require any medal, but rather that I see a situation that is unspeakable, to put it mildly.

This family, particularly Ms. Appleton, are surely distressed beyond any comprehension you or I can come up with regarding what they’re having to be put through. I truly think you should ponder upon that when you have a quiet moment.

I await your reply.

Thank you for your time.

subject: THE EVICTION OF MAY APPLETON, 87

Dear “Weaver Vale Housing Trust”,
Can you please tell me what is happening regarding the return of May Appleton, 87, and her family, to their former home of 61 years, having been forcibly evicted from it by parties acting for Northwich council, on or around 23 March 2016, according to newspaper reports.
For example, when do the authorities in this case expect Ms. Appleton and family to return to their former home?
and,
It is now the 21 April as I write – why is the family’s return taking so long?
I write on behalf of very concerned parties regarding the situation Ms. Appleton and family find themselves in, and we look forward to your speedy reply.
Thank you.

OUTRAGEOUS!!! “May Appleton, 87, evicted from Lostock home by Weaver Vale Housing Trust” 23 March 2016

 

 

 “May Appleton, 87, evicted from Lostock home by Weaver Vale Housing Trust” 

Gina Bebbington, Chief Reporter / / News 

MAY Appleton and her sons have been evicted from their home after their front and back doors were smashed down by bailiffs at 9.30am today, Wednesday.
Bailiffs used sledgehammers and crowbars on the doors before drilling out the locks and telling the family, of Langford Road, they had half an hour to get items together and leave the house where they have lived for 61 years.
Brian Appleton, 61, May’s eldest son, said: “They got a sledgehammer to the door and smashed the window at the top – the glass went all over Mark and cut his hand and went halfway up the stairs.

“All this time mum was stood in the living room shouting and screaming ‘leave my house alone, leave my things alone’.
“Both Mark and Paul held off at the front door and they came round the back, we kept them off for 25 minutes but in the end they drilled the locks off.

“They chucked all my mum’s stuff out on the front garden and trod all over it.
“She was devastated, she was screaming.”

May, 87, has lived in the Lostock Gralam house with her sons Brian, Mark, 51, and Paul, 49, since it was built. 

They have been locked in a three-year battle with landlord Weaver Vale Housing Trust over their possessions, which the trust classed as hoarding and said was a fire hazard.The trust said the family needed to get rid of their hoarded items to comply with their tenancy agreement.
The family argued that the items represent a lifetime of precious memories.
Bailiffs attempted to evict May and her sons on Friday, March 4, but left without success.
They they served the family with a notice to say that they could be evicted any time after 2pm on Wednesday, March 9.
May and her youngest son Paul were checked over by paramedics after the eviction this morning.
The house has now been boarded up and the Appletons have been put up in the Travelodge, in Lostock, for one night.
Brian said: “They were concerned about my mum’s health but just carried on pushing it through.
We’re at the Travelodge now but where we will be tomorrow night I don’t know.”
Judith Burbidge, director of neighbourhoods at Weaver Vale Housing Trust, said: “We have arranged and paid for temporary local accommodation for a week for the family.” 
We are aware that the family have made contact with Cheshire West and Chester Council’s housing solutions team and social services who are assisting the family with finding long term accommodation.
 
“An eviction is always our last resort but in this case we have to put the safety of the family, neighbours and anyone else entering the home first.
“We have tried every option open to us over the course of three years, including the offer to install a sprinkler system in the home and offering to clear and store the items safely, but Mrs Appleton and her sons have continued to refuse all offers of help to reduce the fire risk to both themselves and visitors entering the home, including fire fighters. “We have had almost daily contact with the family to try to find a solution.
“Once the bailiffs took possession of the property, a full safety inspection was carried out.
“The house was then made secure before the removal and safe and secure storage of all the Appletons’ items.”
Mark Cashin, deputy chief officer at Cheshire Fire and Rescue, said: “Hoarding certainly is a growing issue for fire and rescue services.
 
“It presents significant risks for individuals, communities and firefighters.
“This is not about us telling people how they should live their lives it is about keeping people and firefighters safe, something that we have a responsibility to do.
“Fires in the homes of hoarders have resulted in several deaths and have in some incidences put the lives of fire crews in extreme danger.”

Judith added: “Both Cheshire West and Chester Council’s social services team and the local church made last ditch attempts last week to work with the family, to try mediate on our behalf and find a solution, however this was unsuccessful.”
