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.

    Can housing association change my secured tenancy from a 2 bed to a 1 bedroom. I have complained for 15 years that my 15 year old bedroom is to small. Only can fit a single bed. That's all. Now they admit it's a 1 bedroom and want me to change my tenancy to a 1 bedroom also I have paid rent for 15 years and they say they owe me no arrears is this Legal?

    Hi. Can any one advice please. 15 years ago I swapped my 2 bed flat in Norwich to a 2 bed flat in Wimbledon. When I moved hear I questioned my then housing officer that the single bedroom was to small. After 15 years the housing associtation now say it's a 1 bedroom even though I have been paying for a 2 bedroom. Also they want me to change my secure tenancy from a 2 bed to 1 bedroom contract and tell me they owe me no arrears of rent. Is this legal?

  • From Alan London, 13/01/2015 6:11 pm in Relationship break down and moving out with housing association tenancy

    Thanks. No info on the website regarding assignment or succession but in the tenancy agreement it only refers to the subject when talking about the death of the tenant. My partner is still quite young and although it would be nice to have the ability to assign...if it exists, there are other questions to be considered. Her job is not secure and she has been told that if she should need to claim housing benefit in the future then she would only be able to claim for half the rent should my name still be on the tenancy. Were ...

    Hi Andrew,

    I advise you to seek proper advice on this.  There are many people that provide advice on this site that is not necessarily correct.  Have you now succeeded to the tenancy or is that still being looked into.  The Localism Act introduced further rules relating to succession.  caselaw is Newport CC v Charles considered by court of appeal.  The son kept up a pretence his mother was still alive when she had died a number of years previous.  The initial court hearing granted possession under Ground 16 which was overturned on appeal as more than 12 months had passed ...
