Tragic Neglect: Council’s Unsuccessful Attempts to Reach Deceased Mother and Daughter

…By Judah Olanisebee for TDPel Media. Council’s Failed Attempts to Contact Deceased Mother and Daughter


The tragic discovery of the bodies of Zarin Adatia, 84, and her daughter Tasneem, 48, in their north London flat raises concerns about the communication efforts made by council authorities.

Despite their repeated attempts to reach out, the council failed to establish contact with the two women for six months.

It was only during a routine gas safety check conducted by engineers on November 24 of the previous year that their bodies were found.

Failed Communication Efforts:

Council officials from Barnet Homes, responsible for the management of the East Finchley housing development Prospect Ring, made persistent efforts to contact Zarin Adatia and Tasneem.

They claim to have made several attempts, including delivering six letters, making two phone calls, and conducting three door knocks in their attempts to establish communication.


Discovery during a Forced Entry:

With all other attempts to reach the mother and daughter proving futile, Barnet Homes sought a warrant for forced entry into the property.

It was during this entry that the bodies of Zarin and Tasneem Adatia were tragically discovered.

The council expressed deep sadness over their passing and extended condolences to the family and friends affected by the loss.


The council’s failed attempts to contact Zarin and Tasneem Adatia, leading to the discovery of their deceased bodies, highlight a concerning gap in communication.

Despite their efforts to establish contact through letters, phone calls, and door knocks, it raises questions about the effectiveness and frequency of these communication channels.

The tragic outcome emphasizes the importance of timely and efficient communication to ensure the well-being of vulnerable individuals within council-managed properties.
