Just keep on them. And BE NICE. As my mom always said, "you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar." Government delays can be somewhat common these days, depending on a number of factors, and it seems we never do find out which one(s) in particular are at fault. And here, it's not really a year, as they got the documents in August, no? Nevertheless, 4-5 months does sound a bit long. In any event, there's nothing anyone can do for you here on line. If you can't get them to nudge yourself, perhaps go in for a quick consult with a local tenants lawyer. If you have little income, and no substantial assets, you should be able to get some assistance from local legal aid. Hope this helps. gsg
Responses provided herein are merely commentary on the question posed. They are NOT intended as legal advice, nor to be relied upon by anyone, for any reason, nor to create an attorney-client relationship between you and I; and all askers should consult an attorney for advice regarding each individual matter, since each case is a bit different, and not all information is typically recited in the online question as posted. PLEASE do not contact me directly; I am NOT accepting new clients at this time, and only volunteer here on AVVO to "give back" after a long and rewarding career. Good luck!
