Take 2 parents with 3 boys living in an average condition 2 bedroom house,boys are between 3 & 12 with the youngest staying in parents bedroom.
Anyway despite being on council housing list for several years,points total not able to go up for any reason and not been offered anywhere till now,would you accept a 3 bedroom house in a road where there is bother,druggies and so on. The house you been offered was currently occupied by drug addicts too so could be future bother for your family.
Would you accept it if in okay condition or stay put? Bear in mind social housing rarely comes up as those on transfer lists will know. Family not able to move to bigger home by other means,not possible for moment.
My take on it is well you never know who might move next door to you,or in your road. I try keep myself to myself and even though I've had this and that happen round my area,I've never been involved or affected as such in any incidents,so for me,I would take it up and not get involved with people around the road if I knew I was going be moving into such a situation. Keeping in mind,it be long time before I'm offered anywhere else.
Also a lot of councils,only give you 3 refusals on offerings and then your suspended for 1 year on list I think.
