"Geez, if it's 3 bedrooms then it shouldn't be a space problem."
No overcrowding problem even when my Gran was alive according to Scottish law.
"And, if it's not restricted to seniors/retirees, (no children) then the only thing I can think of is this:"
No restrictions, the place its a family home.
"If there's a waiting list then you may not be permitted to jump ahead of others because of Granny's untimely passing. Because Granny was not
permitted to choose the next occupant, her rights and privileges terminated when the poor soul moved on to her reward. The unit now reverts back to
managers' control, and the control freaks won't like it if you end run around their rules and occupy the unit. They may enjoy the power to make
families worry, grovel and sweat while waiting for approval."
I have been on there list for 5 years and have been offered numerous 3 bedroom property's buy the same housing association which i refused at the time
down to the state of the property's. I also lived in the house for 26 years previous to having to move out because there were no property's available
at the time.
"And, all the places we applied did background and credit checks on me and mine when we moved a few years back."
They can carry out as many background checks as they like regarding me and my family, in that department we are pretty much squeaky clean.
In states that have RENTERS' BILL OF RIGHTS the law tries to protect the interests of renters and landlords, but nowhere does the law attempt tp
protect third parties who are not on the contract/lease. That means the only party with rights at issue are the owner/landlord/property manager.
"If they like you and you meet the qualifications for occupancy (and there are no others who have been waiting for an opening) you may get lucky.
Hope so because i pretty much now have no where to go and will become homeless should we be refused and evicted.
"If you hire a lawyer you're gonna get hosed. In my opinion there is no legal issue on which you can mount a successful challenge, but that won't stop
some sharky sheister from taking your money by raising false hopes of a win in court. If you can get a free consultation then, see what he or she has
to say. Maybe your state has an exception that will allow yo to remain in the unit. But, I wouldn't hold my breath."
I dont need to hire a lawyer i will receive legal aid, that just how our country works down to my circumstances.
Thanks for the support.
