Newham Council: How to Fleece the Homeless part 2
Newham Council are without doubt leading the pack when it comes to extracting maximum value from the homeless. A friend who was given a property on a non-secure lease was forced to decorate the property despite musculoskeletal disablement. He didn’t mind too much as he was promised the tenancy would become a secure one after a year.
A year later Newham have changed their policy. My friend will never know his home is permanent – after several years he will have to move to another home. Newham have got their stock decorated on the cheap.
This is all to improve “Choice” apparently.
