    If you thought affordable housing in Sydney was an issue, check out the UK.

    Speaking of affordability, Anglicare put out an article to say Adelaide rents are unaffordable (the median being high 300s / low 400s) because only a percentage of unemployed people can afford to rent without assistance.

    Here's an idea, get a job!

    And yet the same Anglicare advised a former tenant of mine they can sign leases on as many houses as they want and then just live in one they like most and break the others on hardship grounds.

    They are hardly the beacon of property advice.

    I hate those studies.. it isn't even about getting a job... to me it is about living within your means. If you have bugger all income don't rent a house or unit by yourself... there are plenty of alternative that are more affordable,e.g sharehouses!

    What?!? I have to live in a house less desirable (by rent) than 50% of the market just because I don't have a job! Outrageous! (sarcastic rant over)

    Does Anglicare expect no one to live in the bottom 50% of properties, especially the disadvantaged/unemployed?
