we were finally offered a house from the council and we were thrilled as it was in a nice area and had a garden etc. the only thing was it only had one base unit with the sink in it. that was it. so we accepted the house and thot we will put our own units in.

the lady on the phone refused this!!! so i invited her to the house to see it (altho she had already seen it). my dad and i met her there and she said no again. my dad then asked her if she was the person who had passed the house as safe even tho the windows inthe whole house were locked shut as was the back door. she stormed out of the house ( i presume as she knows she was in the wrong) as it is health and saftety fire risk

anyway. she has flagged me on the council system as 'violent and aggressive'. and got a letter stating that i was abusive.
wtf. i nver once used bad language or derogatory terms. i was calm and collected the whole time. she was the one who stormed out and slammed the door.

she is making it all up, but how do i stand up against a council! i feel upset and embarrassed that my name will now be associated with bad behaviour when i have done nothing wrong.

would a councillor be able to help do you think or is it too petty for them??

sorry for the long post struggling with this , making me really down in the dumps

Have you told them how she behaved? If not then do so as other people may have had similar complaints about her. Tell them in detail what happened and why and go from there. If necessary I believe you can organise a mediated meeting to discus the issue.

Isn't one sink in the kitchen enough? Or do you mean units?

Yeah she sounds very unreasonable
