What is the rationale behind allowing those persons/families that are receiving rental assistance from the government in purchasing a house?
How will they be able to afford to repair it if they can't even afford to pay rent? Where is the responsibility that comes with ownership when the cost of everything comes from your own pocket?
I foresee a lot of these homes falling in to disrepair within 1-5 years of ownership and slums developing if too many are gathered in one area.
It's a novel idea, but not well thought out and all the consequences haven't been explored yet (like who is paying for this extravagance?)
