I raised my daughter alone. struggled every year to put a roof over our heads and food in our mouths.thought I was ok when I qualified for afordable houseing lottery only to find out much later that after 17 years living there and putting money into it I didnt have to spare , that I can no longer suport myself and if I have to sell , it goes back to the town and I will walk away pennyless.where does that leave me at 57 years old and alone. in a refridgerator box?

It is apparently much like section 8 housing. Not good for anyone. I knew a couple that had a beautiful fully restored 10 room Victorian home that paid only $300.00 a month rent, had fuel assistance, food stamps, ect and unlike you, kept pumping out the kids Like Hot muffins!
Realy, it seemed like every 3 years another baby was in the house so they would be able to continue collecting state funds.....Here you did the right thing, and you get short end of the stick. Terrible. The Terms should have been fully explained to you way back when. Do you still have the original agreement/contract?
Is the house going to stay within their jurisdiction for the states affordable housing law requirments ?
Maybe you can get a Farmers Home Loan or no money down ( 1st time apparently )mortgage or somthing and buy it from the town ?

Tell your story to Deval. I'm sure he'll be happy to jack up the taxes on the rest of us to pay for your house. He'll probably throw in a big screen TV and digital cable too.

Sorry for my lack of sympathy but I'm tired of folks who spend their entire lives depending on the government to bail them out. Unless your child's daddy was deceased, he should have been either helping out or spending time in jail.
