Can I name and shame all my tenants who fail to pay their rent, cause havoc on the estates and cause £1000's of damage to my employers property?

Yes, go ahead. You would be a stupid not to. You don't run any risk as I am sure your employers will protect you and on top of that they'll give you a promotion.  The more tenants you name and shame the higher your promotion.  You might end up Ceo is you name and shame all your tenants in one go right in the next post on this thread. Just think of the fat salary you will be getting and go ahead, mate!

Your Social Housing employer already has extensive powers and means available to discipline those tenants that behave in ways you have described. Perhaps they are not Draconian enough to ease the anger and frustration that you feel.

Your post is really a deflection from the topic of this thread, isn't it? A tenant raises the possibility of making serious criticisms about a housing association on a public forum. Your response is to deflect attention away from that issue and to try and focus it on the poor behaviour of a small minority of other tenants. It is a way of avoiding the topic that's been raised, with its focus on Housing Associations behaviour.

This is the kind of thing that failing Housing Associations and or workers do to avoid taking responsibility for problems that tenants raise with them.

    It's an interesting situation because The Right to Exchange provisions of The Housing Act 1985 apply only to Secure Tenants not Asuured. I would say therefore that you might be on dodgy ground claiming deemed consnt because the landlord has not responded within 42 days although ironically your neighbour might make that argument.

    It just doesn't work, the only way you will get this to marry up is to change the charge element upon agreeing payments by DD to monthly payments.

    Or perhaps of course, its been determined the other MEx partner would overcrowd a 2 bed or even there are reasons why the other partner is not being allowed to move that you cannot be told.

    You'll find there are some experts and they are clearly marked.  You'll also find others that work within the housing field.  Just because someone works within housing doesn't mean the advice they provide is correct.  I myself work within housing and have done for some time.  With regards my comments on RTB, my brother succeeded to my mother's tenancy.  It was a 4 bed property and he lived in it with my other brother. 2 bed need.  I went to the succession appointment with him and was very surprised how unsympathetic the housing officer was.  She was adamant my ...
