Maybe sublettees have to be benefit and they would show proof of this.
On the other hand, the scheme can allow that the subletter can sublet to anyone she wishes, whether they are on benefit or just someone looking for a temporary cheap accomodation.
This would greatly being down rents in the private sector too, so I am sure private landlords would not like social subletting made available to the market.
Well, the scheme has to be sorted out in detail. I have not worked everything in detail here.
All I am saying this would be a sound progressive initiative, with enormous advantages for all, which would be much better than paying £500 to neighbours to shop subletters.
