MIJAS Council has stepped in to provisionally help a family keep their home in Las Lagunas after they were threatened with eviction for non-payment of rent.
A spokesperson for the council confirmed, “Mijas Council continues to work to help this family and any others who may be in a similar situation.”
According to the town hall, “all kinds of help” have been given to the family since 2006 through both the Social Services Department and welfare payments. They added the family “have received several different types of aid from the council, including basic supplies and food stamps.” The town hall also confirmed €1,200 had been given to them in April to either negotiate with their landlord or find somewhere else to live.
According to the council, “in total this residents has received 86 different forms of help, on top of the personal support provided by social workers and educators and our psychologist. The department has also helped with the resident’s disability and put in place all necessary procedures so they are given a non-contributory pension.”
