Hi, not sure if this is the right place, and to be honest not really money saving. Anyway to cut along story short........moved to Helensbugh (Faslane) in 2007 to awful 90% empty estate suffered alot with the local wildlife shall we say (bricks through windows, petrol outside door and cars, fencing kicked down, knocking on door and running away, bins set on fire etc) anyway after begging letters, with photos and so one DHE wouldnt move us to the other estate even though there where many empty houses there and every week I went round to told them......to be told a load of crap in return.......so we used LSAP and brought any house we could afford (which isnt really fit to live in, which we didnt relise at the time) anyway in Aug we got our move atleast (we found being somewhat forcefull helped) and now are happy. Still own a house 9 miles away but the living in the MQ has been cleared due to its state. this yr of paying rent+ mortgage is nearly making us bankrupt but we are struggling on and its not selling!
Anyway we are moving to Plymouth next year and woundered if anyone could give us a heads up of the houses and areas? as we dont want any of the above problems.
for my 2 pence worth - DHE are a complete waste of space and I echo my housing officers (move in out guy who is lovely) view that they are disgraceful and couldnt care less & he said many of the girls are ex armed forces wives so its even worse.
On the + side whenever I have had to call out for repairs they have been carryed out well - execpt for fencing which was done so badly.
Looking froward to moving to Plymouth from Faslane, just worried about the housing, after fighting so hard to move to lower churchill we now have to leave!!!

I have recently moved into this quater and notice the colder the weather is getting the worst my damp is in the kids bedrooms.
The last house that did this and complained and all they did was come out and paint over the damp. Then a couple of days later it reappeared.
My kids have asthma and this can make there health worse, Is there any other way I can get this solved.
