    im not clear on what the question is and even less clear as to whether anyone is actually answering it?!

  • From Abe Foolish, 19/10/2014 6:17 pm in Queen Mary University of London ,Disgrace

    Just to say that the QMUL Residential Services team have gone down in my own estimate . I didn't think such things happened but now I can believe anything. My best wishes to your lodger for having the courage to come out with this revelation which can't be very pleasant considering he is a student of QMUL .

  • From Ansa Celestine, 22/05/2014 11:27 pm in Help With Disrepairs

    I spoke to someone the other day who very bravely withheld their rent and put it in a seperate account.  The housing association took them to court but then they told the judge that they did have the money, they are just desperate to be heard as they are not getting any help.  The judge ordered the housing association to do the repairs and the tenant to pay the rent.  Apparently now when the person phones the housing association they jump to do the repairs.  I am not as brave as that person, but I do understand the frustration ...

  • From Mr Webb, 02/10/2013 4:32 pm in are housing benefit under occupancy rules a threat to vulnerable people?

    The vulnerable do appear to have been crucified by the welfare reforms. No doubt though the policy makers will claim it was not their fault and find some other group to blame it on.

  • posted Anonymously, 15/09/2013 9:07 pm in HCA Framework Document

    i know of a social rent property which was vacant one day, new tennant ( via nomination from homeless) informed 3 days later, no mention of " affordable rent" in offer letter. Rent has increased by over 300.00 per month.  Now that certainly is not Affordable..

  • From alan brunwin, 03/08/2012 4:13 pm in Yobs with Dogs: Another "needs" based allocation outcome

    I live in shelterd housing and its a life of hell. we have a Rottweiler dog housed with two old people in a one bed no garden first floor flat next door to us 5 feet away, and its made our life hell. Kepts us awake night day with them taking the big dog down the staircase banging doors. The Housing assosiation are a law unto themselves do what they like to you. Even told us to move out if we don't like it. shame on them.The dog comes first.
