A MOTHER and her two small children are to be evicted from their home after a mix-up between the council and Wulvern housing staff.
Anna Vernon, 22, moved into her new house at Mossford Avenue, Crewe, in December last year after being forced to quit her previous home on Timbrell Avenue.
She moved into the Wulvern property with her two children, Leanna, two, and four-month-old baby David, born premature and currently waiting for a major operation.
Having fallen behind with her payments, Miss Vernon approached Crewe's Citizens' Advice Bureau, where she was told she could settle the £114 debt in weekly £3 installments and was given a payment card to make the payments.
But she was horrified when, last week, she received a letter from Wulvern Housing saying no agreement had been made, the eviction still stood, and court action was to be taken against her.
Miss Vernon said: 'At the CAB, I explained I had this debt and they told me what they could do to help me.
'They phoned Wulvern and I filled in the forms and began making the payments with no trouble at all, but now Wulvern have said they are evicting me and taking me to court.
'I told them I filled the forms and got the payment card, but now they are saying they never agreed to the payment plan.'
And she added that, with two small children, the stress was almost too much to bear.
But a Wulvern spokesman said Miss Vernon had not appealed against the decision made by them to evict her from the property on the grounds she had made herself 'intentionally homeless', although Miss Vernon said she had not yet had explained to her what that meant.
The spokesman added: 'She did not comply so a possession order was granted by the courts.'
