New council flat

Recommended Posts

I made the move from private tenant to council tenant a few weeks ago. This should save me around £175 a month in rent. Given what a **** quality of retirement the MSM hints I may face in 25 or so years time I'll need to save this money for the future!

I only got offered the 1 bedroomed flat because of the neferious nature of the previous occupants. It was let under a 'sensitive let' criteria. The local authority had to 19 or so places down the list until they got to my name.

My wait on the register was 2 years and 4 months. It is still possible to get a council or Housing Association place at a reasonable level of rent. However as with the lottery 'you have to be in it to win it'.

So I now join an elite club of HPC members like council dweller & rentier paradiso (does he still post here?) as council/HA tenants. :)
