Its totally scandalous whats going on in the rental sector.
Landlords are charging what the hell they want as gov just walk about in coma as evictions sky rocket along with rent and council tax arrears.

Rent or mortgage whatever your situation the big problem is going to be who the hell can afford to pay either.

People are now going to work to just exist,pay rent etc;no ones actually making a living and i feel its been this way since 2005 progressively got worse.

Remember when we all went to work at some stage in our lives and paid the bills,went on holiday,saved a little money,paid our debts and maybe changed the car every 5 years.

Tory's have made dam sure that kind of life is only for the 1 per-centers.

One day this will come back and bite the Tory s and their rich property development friends right on the bum.

Dont know when, but here's hoping.

I`m very lucky that I have always stayed at home and share a council house now with my older mother and we are joint tenants. But I know that one day when mum is no longer around, that joint tenancy will be ripped up and shredded and the full rent will be in my name rather than half the rent. That`s why it`s not worth risking a job that pays over the safety net where the wage would affect your housing benefit. I don`t ever see myself getting full time hours again anyway so I will be happy to do whatever is necessary to cover my back, be that staying where I am or only doing what the job centre say. I don`t see the point in working now unless you are in a secure job with decent wages. It`s all low pay, contracts and gloom.
