An alternative approach has been tested in South Lanarkshire, where two- and three-bedroom houses have been converted into separate apartments (separate rooms, common areas. B kitchen). The idea was that each person was responsible for their own municipal tax and rent, and that individuals could more easily leave. Occupancy contracts were used instead of leases.

With a joint lease under the Short Scottish Secure Tenancy (SSST), this agreement has been in place since September 2017. SFHA is part of a group that wants to continue exploring this type of model, and I would like to hear your thoughts. What do you see as barriers? What do you think to make it work? Do you think there would be a request for that in your area? The two people in this project have gone from unemployment to employment in the housing company. What matters is that it worked really well for them and was considered a better alternative to a temporary furnished apartment. This document is also available in pdf format (328k). Simon Scotland and DWP are working on a joint lease project.
This is for people who can become homeless and the offer is an opportunity to share a two-room property. The Council`s taxation and differences in interpretation in different areas could also be a challenge. In South Lanarkshire, for example, the appraiser agreed to separate dwellings and the HB team agreed to have each property taxed. The City Council also ensured that each dwelling was registered separately, so that each individual was subject to tax, even though this increased the total city council tax. Although the proposal to use LHA in the social rental sector does not apply to some, the idea of a common rent in the social rental sector could be very attractive. Proposals to introduce the ceiling on local housing assistance in the social housing sector would have a significant impact on single people under 35 in the social rental sector in Scotland. A few years ago, radical changes in social policy forced people to think creatively about meeting housing needs. Some projects are already exploring the potential.
In this project, this type of housing is highly regarded as a stage and not as a permanent home. But it offers a good option for some people. Motivational Letter Acknowledgements Section One: How to use the Model Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement (MoSSTA) Section Two: Model Scottish Secure Tenant Agreement Section Three: Summary Model Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement Section Four: Legal Commentary on the Model Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement Research published by CIH Scotland estimated that around 12,000 single holders under the age of 35 living in mainstream social housing. The likely deficit for this group of tenants would be between $5.3 million and $8.6 million per year. The support of the DWP, especially the local HB teams, was very important to make it a success. They were happy to agree on the same allocation for HB support. How could this work in UC? The answer is that we are not. DWP does not have a barrier, but it has not yet been tested.
