Last spring, we learned that the bank had foreclosed on Neelu Berry’s house in Ilford. Then in late July, Neelu told Andy Peacher that repossession was imminent any time after 9 August. Nothing happened during the autumn (barring the repossession of her son’s car for non-payment of a fine), but yesterday the other shoe dropped.
It started about 11 a.m. with a cry for help: This was followed by several videos.
In the first, we see Neelu and her sister seeing the bailiffs off. According to Neelu, they said they’d be back with more resources.

Next, Neelu reviews the damage done to her front door. She seems quite shaken, as one might expect:
And in the third, we see the bailiffs and police breaking in the door and confronting Neelu and her family:
It’s difficult to tell from all of this whether the eviction was carried out, but clearly, the process has begun.
Neelu’s explanation to one of her Facebook friends is typically garbled and nonsensical: It seems very odd that as an educated person and a homeowner Neelu would somehow be ignorant of the basics of how mortgages work.
The facts—that she has been in arrears with her payments; that she doesn’t seem to understand the interest/principal ratio in a normal mortgage; that she somehow believes it reasonable to demand that the bank repay her the interest she has paid; and, worst of all, that she has chosen to ignore the foreclosure notice which she received nearly a year ago—all seem to mitigate against the possibility that Neelu will be able to scream and harangue her way out of this one.
While it’s not clear whether Neelu is homeless today, it seems quite certain that the bailiffs and police mean business, and that the day of reckoning has finally come.
We take no pleasure whatsoever in this. While we’ve chuckled at Neelu’s antics regarding her son’s car, and have shaken our heads at her strange obsessions with arresting judges, imposing multi-gazillion pound liens, planting crystals around courts in an effort to raise the vibration, and insisting that SwissIndo is not a scam, we don’t like to see anyone deprived of their home.
There is no doubt that Neelu, once an intelligent, well-educated woman with a bright future, is facing further encounters with the bailiffs; and it seems extremely unlikely that Neelu will prevail.
