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.

    Tenants of Registered Providers do not have a legal right to exchange unlike Secure Local Authority tenants who enjoy a Right to Exchange under the provisions of the Housing Act 1985. For tenants of RP's their rights reagrding exchanging will therefore be found in the detail of their contract (tenancy) with their landlord.

    No they shouldn't, they should build new homes or invest in current stock improvements

    You are not being bullied, the council is fulfilling its legal duty, although perhaps they have not explained this well enough?

    Yes. It may well be the case the son succeeded due to a legal or contractual term, depending on the tenancy agreement. Perhaps it was even a policy decision which did not take the adpatations into account (unlikley but possible).

  • From Eve Steadman, 25/03/2014 6:51 am in Terrible service from housing assoc

    Further to my previous post: I would like to form a contact/pressure group of Metropolitan residents (South), which includes my own area, Cambridge. Please spread the word and provide ideas as to how all those residents may be contacted, and how we could establish communication independedently of this forum. Do many or any residents read Metropolitan's Facebook page?

    Many thanks for your reply, much appreciated

  • posted Anonymously, 24/03/2014 10:29 am in Service Charge Increase Legal? Moral?

    Legal: It is alawys a mistake to think of change of service charge cost as an increase - is it the correct cost for the services provided? & are those costs reasonable (i.e. for the service you recieve are the costs in the right ball park)

    Enlightening.

    Sara, you'll impress if you show you've researched a topic and part of the job that's new to you, and ask intelligent questions about how that organisation manages risk, compared to your research.
