Hi,

 

Currently applying for a councill house under threat of violence and wondered what the earning limit is to be eligable????

 

i have read this can exclude you but i cannot find anywhere what the limit is.

 

If anyone knows this please help....

 

 

 

 

I do not earn big money but i also have a few debts which i am paying off currently and it is these that make it unviable to rent and buying is miles out of my budget.

 

Any advice as to what route i could take would be appreciated.

can't see how a big salary would be a barrier, it should give the council comfort to see that you could afford the rent.

 

You need to be aware that as most councils have a shortage of housing available to rent and that there are waiting lists for these, certain groups of people may have priority over you.

 

My advice would be to ask the council housing office for an application form and tell them your circumastances. As you're not specific about why you're "under threat of violence" its hard to know if you qualify for priority treatment but the council staff will be able to advise.

I work for an Housing ALMO. Housing Advice and Lettings still come under the Council where I work. I have found nothing to say that you would become uneligible for Council housing due to earnings. But as RickyD said it's all about priority and how many points you are allocated. If you earn enough money to be able to afford to buy or privately rent then this may affect your priority and the amount of points you are given. So, although you may be on the waiting list you may never get a property because too many people have more points than you.

 

However, you mention that you are under threats of violence. In our Council's policy a need to move due to harassment or violence including domestic violence is a priority and anyone with this need would get quite a lot of points for this alone before any other circumstances were taken into consideration. However, there would need to be some proof so if you have not done so already you should try to get some assistance. Our Council have a specialist ASB team that can work with all residents of the Borough and have dedicated workers in a domestic violence partnership unit - if the have this type of thing (or other agencies/support groups) where you live you should talk to them as they can be very helpful.You should also try to talk to the Police if you haven't done so. But as RickyD said get an application in and arrange to talk to an officer about your case.
