Re: Hyndburn Homes

Is it about that BwithUs scheme which allows you to apply for transfer to other areas?

If so, I registered with BwithUs several months ago, when Harwood Red told me that this was coming up. You can look on line to register an interest in another home in Hyndburn BlackburnwithD and Rossendale
http://www.b-with-us.com/homedata.asp
The site is only showing the BwithUs in BlackburnwithD at the mo

No Margaret..........It's called Choice Based Lettings, it's gonna be like Eavesbrook where you have to bid for properties.
Blackburn with Darwen and Pendle and Rossendale are doing the same thing, if your an applicant with Hyndburn Homes your eligible to be considered for the other areas as well

Re: Hyndburn Homes

I think that 'Choice based lettings' is the term used nationally
Shelter England - Choice-based lettings
I notice that a BwithUs link has appeared on the hyndburn Homes website

Re: Hyndburn Homes

That's all well and good allowing people to bid for different properties, but what about checks on people making the bid. Over the last 2 years we have had an alcoholic living in our block of flats and its been horrendous, the police have never been away, its not so much this guy but the baggage he brings with him, people screaming and shouting at 3 and 4 o'clock in a morning, having to watch one of his cronies stood peeing against a wall at 9-15am, the enforcement officers is never away, but it takes a lot to get rid so I ask why house people like this when they know there could be problems its social engineering gone made

Re: Hyndburn Homes

We had a problem in the block next door but one.
The woman tenant added -
her daughter, her daughter's fella, 2 children, 2 dogs, several cats, and her own manfriend with his dog
in her ONE bedroom flat.

They had habits which included dog fouling and careless rubbish disposal.
Hyndburn Homes eventually evicted them after many warnings - took about a year to achieve.

Just keep complaining.......and hope

Re: Hyndburn Homes

checks are made of prospective tenants but we have limited powers as an RSL (Registered social landlord) to refuse housing.

Also someone being an alcoholic does not exclude them from needing housing.

As for nuisance issues, these are very difficult to deal with as in many cases people are not happy to report it let alone fill in the required paperwork/reports to allow us to take it further.

EVICTON HEARING

Judge: So what evidence do you have that this person is causing intolerable nuisance to his neighbours

Housing: Because we say so!!

Case thrown out

Plus just getting as far as an eviction hearing is time consuming and full of red tape!

By the way I work in the B-with-us team

Well I'm not frightened of filling in any paper work, have been doing it for 18 months, Alcoholics may have a right to social housing but it doesn't give them the right to screw everybody else's lives up who come into contact with them. HH knew this guy had problems so why put him in a block of flats with three other people over 60 one was in is 80's and in poor very health and has sadly died since. They knew the score when they gave him the keys then just sat back and lit the blue touch paper
