I just wanted to clarify this one; that when the council asks “Would you like to rent a house?” it actually means rent it yourself and NOT out to someone else!


As I’m sure you’re all aware about the big “scandal” that has &  currently is sweeping Great Britain by storm.

Now if you didn’t think people cheating the benefit system was bad enough for benefits or claiming illness when there is nothing wrong then you will just love this.

Now people who are on a very big chunk of money, in terms of their income, are receiving housing and thought that was not enough; so decided so sub-let and earn a pretty penny on top. But it does not stop there; even people with no job or any motivation to get one who have been homed by the council are also subletting to actually earn themselves an income!


And this leads me to this other story, where now the council are going to refuse to house criminals in their properties.

So because of this are we now going to see a massive influx from the social housing sector coming over into the private rented sector???

Because if you want to know how to do it this is how;

1. Go and rent 10 individual properties out at £500 a month each

2. Now rent those out for £500 a month each (equalling £5,000 a month in cash)

3. Run it as long as you can, until your landlord susses it out

4. Then, let’s say you get away with it for 3 months on each one, you’ll have now made £15,000 profit BISH BASH BOSH!

5. Penalty county court judgment and nothing.


But if you rent out your council house you will now receive the penalty of imprisonment.

And they say we are all equal? ! Some just a bit more equal than others it would seem!

One way to possibly stop this in it's tracks is to phone the council tax dept for where your properties are on a monthly basis.

If you receive back a response on the phone that is not who is listed then you might have a problem.

Also insist that the electoral roll is signed before they sign the AST and send the form yourself.

Again monthly phone the electoral roll dept and confirm the occupant.

Of course an RGI policy would stop the landlord losing anything.

But the RGI companies would take a hammering!?
