Hi everyone i wanted to do this forum to see what answers i could find. I am on waiting list for commission housing in vic we have been on the list now for 2 years this is just for general not early. We have been told it can take 15 years until we could get a house. At the moment me and my kids live in a 2 bedroom bungalow in my dads backyard witch is not self contained we have been living here for about 5 years now. Over the years the bungalow has got rain damage which causes mold etc and we are forever getting sick despite how clean i keep it. My son asthma and i am highly algeric to mold. We can afford to rent a house and housing comision has been my only option. I rang up a few days ago to see how i can get further on the list they told me i need to go to my dr and get them to prove me and me son have medical condtions in order to be on the early housing list. I can do this without a problem. She also told me even that list can take 10 years is she lying or what honestly? I know someone who got a house within 2 years of being on the early hosuing list. i want to hear from anyone who is on the waiting list and what they have been told etc. What would be the best area in melbourne to go to when you chose a area? I have 2 kids shareing the one room at the moment all they do is fight my son is always sick i am always sick and i know its from living in here i am 26 years old almost 27 now i just need to get into housing. What anoys me the most is i have a street down the road full of comisiion housing that all have drugys and drug dealers how the hell do they get priority over people like us who really need it??
