    Agree with previous comment. Your best bet is to try and get a job as a Customer Services worker with a social landlord.  After a couple of years of that, you'll have a very good overview of what HO's do.  If you can do some training at the same time, that'll stand you in good stead.

  • From Paul Jones, 16/09/2014 0:04 am in Tenancy Succession - Urgent Advice

    Just to point out about "one of society's most vulnerable" : Addiction is an illness. Now, some addicts do terrible things and cause havoc. If this is the case then eviction should follow, but only after a recommoendation that the said addict go into recovery. There is a big difference between an active addict and someone clean and sober and causing no trouble. The second is a vulnerable person deserving of support. The first is generally a neighbour from hell.

    HI, Firstly the fact that two of you are working should really make no difference to the scenario although they may have a better chance in securing a private rented propetry is they wanted to do so.

  • From TrackDay, 27/08/2014 4:47 pm in What makes some estates worthy of regeneration while a lot are being demolished?

    Hi, first question last.  Park Hill Flats was one of the first of its type to be developed in England in the early 1960s.  The back to back terraced pre 1919 houses it replaced were highly unpopular.  The vision of Streets in the Sky had not been sullied by bad mangement, poor (in some cases) construction and thermal insulation, and anti-social behaviour.  As a result the flats were very popular when they first opened, and even up until the late 1980s many of the original tenants were still living there.  Later developments of similar flats in Sheffield failed to ...
