starkill3r said:But if you have been "offered" it, surely it was offered from the council? because you are on benefits etc? you must of applied for a council housing to get offered one.
Usually when you get offered a council property it's because of those reasons, it's not like your local estate agent pops round and offers you a property etc..
Apologies if I'm way off.
Don't need to be on benefits at all, I put my name on the council list when I hit 18, was offered a couple of bedsits at 25 which I turned down, was then passed over to a housing association who offered me a proper 1 bed flat. I was in full time employment the whole time.
Ahh fair enough, I thought I was wrong, I didn't know you could apply for council housing without being on benefits.
Everyone has a right to affordable housing, I've been on the list for 8 years and because I changed from needing a two bed place to a one bed place I got offered one after bidding on 1bed places for last few months.
absolutely excellent Hope you enjoy living there A friend of my wife has lived in one for over 20 years. Reasonable rent and the council look after the building well... and it couldn't of come at a better time It's going to be a saving of over half of what I'm paying now!

i lived on a council estate for nigh 15 years and i can certainly say the vast majority of my neighbours were working people
