  • 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 DaftAida, 26/09/2012 9:25 pm in HOUSING ASSOCIATION TENANT FAILURE

    Oh, and just a couple of other points; don't bother explaining to those who are obviously clueless. Unless they've been in an extraordinary situation they can't possibly understand - let them remain in ignorance. Cut them off and out as being too offensive to bother with.

  • From alan brunwin children's author, 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.

  • From Progressive Solutions Required, 18/07/2012 3:27 pm in The rise of the private rented sector

    What saddens me more Joe is that the scale of additional private rented homes has not involved any considerable extent of new building, simply the recycling of former home, and a large number of former social homes at that, into cash cows and multiple occupation rabbit hutches.

  • From Rue, 29/06/2012 3:24 pm in the way of shared ownership

    Many thanks for that, Sancho. I have indeed investigated most of these. Unfortunately nothing is available at the mo, in the price bracket - smaller share say 25 -30%. And those that have been around longest are now on the open market, and vendors seem reluctant to continue the conversation with the housing association from whom they bought the original share. One in particular, I fell in love with, and have been watching its lack of movement on rightmove at f. m. v.
