I'm conflicted about this post and MAY delete it down the road. We live in an expensive to live city. D C has many problems with housing. Much of it is her own fault, as she often gets frustrated in some way with her place and wants to leave quickly...like in two months. This is actually an improvement from the past. In the past, she would get evicted. Her father is her designated payee, because she can't handle money. About 90%of her check goes into rent. And she stays in horrible places. Sometimes places that would be considered slums. And she's been pinched and groped at various places and one time saw men shooting up by the stairwell. Right now she is in a room within a nice house (but one that needs repairs) not too far from our home. The owner has financial problems and is charging a fairly low rate. However, the owner is a g. F. G. . The ac was broken for six weeks and we had to get repairmen over there to get the ball rolling and he (the owner) never tried to get it repaired or offered an explanation or to lower the rent for the time being. Other VERY VERY weird goings on and of course, she wants to move. I can't totally blame her this time (and some of the other times too). If a relative was to own a home or a condo in a decent area and charge her the rate for the going area or slightly below, would this be ok (she's on SSI)? . We don't know what else to do. I read the website info and it seems like it would be ok and the rates vary in the area I'm thinking of...so it would be hard to pinpoint the exact proper rental fee. Does anyone have any personal insight into these situations? Thank you. PS I might ask for this thread to be deleted....but really really need any insight.
