piece of piss
i was living in a shitty high rise block, which was all that had been available at the time. knowing they were kicking everyone out and having to rehome them soon, i stayed put.
as a result of this, when time came to be hoofed out, i got a lovely ground floor flat with a massive garden, the removal men and van were paid for by the council and i was given £3,850 "for the inconvenience".
happy fucking days!

EDIT: just pointing out that i lived there for 7 years and had no idea for the first five that plans were being made to evict all the tenants and close the block. once plans were announced, nobody else was allowed to move in, so nobody could take advantage of the council's policy of paying out to people being evicted when they didn't want to be.

i pay tax too, you know
had to move out of my parents' house on very short notice and the high rise was all i could find, apart from a hostel. i was lucky to get it, even though they couldn't give flats away in that block at the time. the old couple on the top floor had lived there 36 years and had no choice over whether they stayed or not, we all had to go. i'm simply pointing out that i got lucky and moving house was, for me, bloody easy.

I think I would have enjoyed reading
why you had to leave your parents' house at such short notice. Maybe it was for quite innocent reasons but I'd prefer to imagine otherwise.
