Re: Do you live on-site or have a tied house?

2019,my salary was 18k, My rent for a 3 bedroom bungalow on site was £84 per month, with Suffolk county council. After 3 years being tupe over (2016) to academy status I lost my home and job, Great job, Great life, Great school, but new management were the pits!!!!! So early retirement for me and living in Spain now.

I'm near the 28K mark and I pay £37 a month which includes council tax and water. I realise how fortunate I am! The only trouble is management are failing the school so the job is difficult. On the plus side my partner is the big bread winner in the family and we practically save all of her income.

On site accommodation is as rare as rocking horse manure around here these days. The split site I worked on back in the 80s had three tied houses, one on each site. Times change.

I am on site and pay just over £250 a month which is for the rent and water. Local commercial rent is very high so it is pretty good.

Re: Do you live on-site or have a tied house?

I'm in Essex and have a 3 bedroom semi just outside the school gates. I pay £84 a month and have done so for 18 years. They tried to put the rent up by £20 once and I politely told them that for them £20 was a spit in the ocean but for me it was a £20 pay cut and if they insisted on making me pay the extra I would be straight out the door. I never heard any more about it.
Don't argue with fools! They'll bring you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
