We will just get a place to rent here hey!!

 

I was talking to a 50 year old guy yesterday who has never rented before, but due to circumstances they had to sell their home.

They are a mixed generational  family of 6, Three of them work and there are 3 kids. For the last month they have been living with a relative.

They been looking for a rental property for the last 4 weeks with little success.¬†They have put in 20 applications and have just secured a home 20km from their preferred area – thats 20km from their child’s school…

In the end as they have no rental history to get them over the line, they had to get a relative with a rental history to apply for a house for them, just to get into a small 3 bedroom property …

But as we know, its population growth (which the government has no control over) that is the problem right!!!
