PSR. Are you quoting Theodore Parker now?

I'm still confused what the advantage of living in England I have over those living in Scotland, Ireland or Wales. Other than the fact England is a nicer place to live...

Some people would argue that Scotland is being propped up by English taxes, which presumably means that they can afford luxuries that England arguably can't. The Scots argue that this is not the case.

Personally I suspect that they just have their priorities in a different order....

    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?

  • 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.

Were ...

    Hi Andrew,
