    Need help urgently

    To follow on from this post, I really need help.

    Basically the story goes something like this. I was in bed last night fairly early, around 12 or something, and a few of my friends can testify to this. However I get a banging on my door this morning from the manager of my hall who asks me to meet him and his wife downstairs in 10 minutes. So I get dressed and go down there, wondering what it was all about and then get handed a letter saying I had been evicted for smoking on the fire escape last night. I was in bed, so I tell them this, but they are pretty determined to make me leave, so I've got to pack my bags and be out of here by 5.30pm tomorrow. The only saving grace is that I can go home, as I am on holidays, but Nina is going to be down her and I'll miss her and she isn't on holidays (Yeah, soft bastard, I know)

    Now, a few things strike me as odd/relevant.

    I don't have money for smokes, and haven't for ages.
    My mates can testify I was in bed,
    Bruce (the manager) has a habit of drinking, coming down and going nuts at us.
    The fire escape I was allegedly on was on the other side of the building to my room, meaning I would've had to climb out of a window on that side of the building.

    Thoughts? Suggestions? I'd say I was with Nina all night (a lie) but there are cameras on her floor, meaning Bruce would check the tape to see if I went into her room or she came out and went upstairs to mine.

    Feeling pretty **** right now, so any help is appreciated.

    It's a good idea, but it's not cheap.

    The trouble is as you are paying for board at their residence they have the upper hand in the whole scenario. Key points to focus on are your alibi and on their proof of actually catching you smoking. You should of course be adamant about your innocence and even go see a lawyer for some legal council Yet in the mean time you're probably going to need to find a new place.

    Just read in the Student Handbook that if I get evicted I've still got to pay 10 weeks rent, whilst also renting another place. How the **** can I afford that if I'm only making rent each week here? Geez. Not looking too flash right now.

    First of all, why would he come running at you telling you to 'GAGF' for apparently smoking in the first place? Do you have enemies there or you and the manger don't like each other (before your notice). I know you said he has a habit of drinking and going nuts at you guys, but something must of happened in the beginning for him to do this as I (TBF I don't know the bloke) find it hard to believe somebody would get pissed and going around telling people to leave for a laugh (unless he is very sadistic and cruel).
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Do you have a lease? If you do, check it's terms and see if it has a clause about circumstances in which they can evict.

    Otherwise, have a look for a legal service or an advisory service/ tribunal that helps tenants. Over here it's the CTTT (Consumer, Trade and Tenancy Tribunak), but there might be something like a rental board or somewhere that'll help you.

    Even if you don'thave a formal lease, call them anyway - they'll probably be able to give you some good advice over the phone.

    Good luck with it.

    What happens if you find another place but can't make the other rent that you would still owe (for the ten weeks)?

    pretty stupid lying about your alibi, when you've actually got a solid truthful one that you can't fall back on now...
