    I don't know how you'd go about vetting potential tenants, to make sure you don't end up with the wrong sort. It's a lovely thing to do though.

      Whilst I'm impressed that they care that much, lets hope it turns out OK. I fear it will turn to Tulip.

        This just isn't going to end well. The charity workers themselves are going to need charity to help them

          You might house people you already know. It mentions they're Christians so their church might have a program helping such people, which can funnel candidates their way.

          Or they might not care about vetting that much, and take the view that if their house gets trashed, that's a risk they're willing to take.

            Maybe they've already got to know the people they're housing? We have an asylum seeker staying with us. We'd known him for a year before inviting him. I'm hoping his application is granted as I'd like to take him on as a permie and makes some money out of him.

              OK I can only post about cars, watches or attacking another poster.

                nope read the post

                The husband and wife asked charity Hope Projects to find them some tenants
                we all know you want to exploit some asylum seeker rather than training up a local , "may your morals be overridden by greed" not sure where that was on the stone tablet...

                  If you treat people like crap they'll probably meet your expectations. It's a bit of a vicious circle with landlords in deprived areas... they treat the tenants like scum because they can't be trusted; the tenants then act badly and treat the house badly, reinforcing the landlord's views and so on and so on. Breaking such a chain involves risk and probably cost which means people rarely try.
