Illegal sub-letting of privately rented property.

Person/persons believed to be illegally sub-letting a privately rented house traced to property owned by Gateway Housing Association.

I rented my house in forest Gate to a man called Rafiqul Islam. I discovered he was illegally subletting my house. When I tried to evict him, he refused to leave and stopped paying the rent. I recently regained possession of my house, it was in an awful state. Mr. Islam owes me 13 months rent. I used a tracing agency to find Mr. Islam and they told me letters from my house had been redirected to *******(address omitted), which is owned by Gateway Housing. I contacted them about this, but they don’t seem interested.
