Tenants have number of options available to them should they feel dissatisfied with services, including the withholding of rent and generally making the HA staffs life very difficult - and this is happening every day.
By increasing choice i.e. balloting for a new association or tenants taking over the board is not only a bad idea but an expensive, dangerous one at that. Organisations are in place to ensure performace levels are kept in check and in the main do a pretty good job. The only thing that will result from this is an further unnesseary framentation of an already over complicated system.
