Someone mentioned on another thread ( full of trolls ) everyone seemed to be a home owner on here and we should do a poll.

So, here it is.

What about lodgers? I am renting a room from someone who has a mortgaged house whilst I wait to move into my own rented flat/house in February, God-willing.

Technically I am homeless.

Then you are a renter

No, I'm not recognised by the law as a tenant, I understand. Lodgers don't have the protections that tenants do. Same for people in temporary housing or hostels.

I want 'homeless' as a category.

What does 'living in a van' class as, or squatting?

If you dont pay council tax, you dont get a vote.

People in Jail should consider themselves renters.

Ahhhm you're proper renter scum I'm afraid, but just class yourself as renter for the purposes of the poll.

If the Government pays your rent via HB, are you a renter or a scrounger?

More seriously, it would be interesting to have renter subdivided into Private rent and Social sector rent.

If you worked for BHS for 10 years and are now redundant and have to claim HB are you a scrounger or just unlucky? Maybe we should have HB claimants divided into worthy and non-worthy whilst we're at it.

Hard to say. In my area, if as a single male you haven't found a job in 8 months I would say scrounger. Other areas of the country may be different.

So about 70% are renters and 10% are owners and 20% are trolls.

 

Sounds about right.

You should have asked how many have a share of one, a whole one, or more than one BTL.

Should be 'just a renter' - it's a necessary prefix.

And any form of ownership should be described as 'on the ladder'
