    Hi this is a letter I just wrote in complaint to the council if you have a read you'll fully understand my situation.

    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.

  • From Rose007, 28/06/2014 11:00 am in Succeeding the tenancy

    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 ...
