SIMPLY

you don't pay your rent you get evicted!

you don't abide by the lease and rules you get evicted!

Low Income Housing is meant to be transitional housing. To help families get back on their feet and in a home in the private sector. Its was never intended for multiple generations of families to live there decade after decade.

There should be mandatory time limits of living in any low income housing. Yes some people are disabled, elderly (there are low income places for elederly and disabled)and some people are struggling with what life has dealt them but again some are just lazy and choose to live off tax payers and some are pathetic and will get involved in illegal issues and still think it is okay to live off the tax payers who strive to work hard and accomplish their dreams and goals.

Here is my real point...WHY,WHO, would encourange their grandchildren to "get on the lease"? ABSURD ! NEGLECT... should NOT be allowed!
I am sick and tired of supporting lazy worthles people....this lady has another20-30 years for US to support her. Her final years will be in a nursing home with the taxpapers footing a bill of $6000.00 a month....
I'm moving to anothe country !

Landlord Tenant law is governed by each state--there is no rule throughout the US. Besides, she had several 30 day notices before she got to court, then it was 84 days since the court gave the housing authority immediate possession of before she was really kicked out. In Virginia it takes 90 days in arrears before you can get to the hearing. This woman has not paid rent in a very long time.

I seriously doubt she's the longest renting tenant. That's what is so sad. Some families make it a way of life and don't try to break the cycle. If your rent, electric, food, and probably Medicaid, is paid for, and you live on the city bus line, you don't need a lot of money to survive.

Perhaps she should have given up the dog and used that money to pay her rent.

While I couldn't fathom living off the government for this amount of time, it is a shame that only reading the short article that left out a great amount of details as to what her situation is and to assume that she is "worthless" is sad. She could be disabled. The 2012 benefit for SSI is $698/month. I would challenge you to find any housing in Charlottesville outside of government/subsidized that you could afford on just $698.
The subsidized housing she was living in probably had her paying less than $100 per month, well below the 30% of her total income that most working people pay for housing. The court records indicated she had been behind in 2008, 2010 and again in 2012. The steps to get this data into public records take a considerable amount of time and resources. Would your landlord or mortgage company let you stay in your home when you were delinquent for over 4 years? Treat everyone equally......

I believe she had had notice for 1460 days....back to 2008 when she was taken to court for back rent the first time.

20 years is way too long for anyone to live in public housing. The limit should be 5 years, and also anyone who applies for welfare needs to be drug tested. When are they going to start to notice all these welfare people are getting money from somewhere to have nice cars, jordans, polos and whatever else I can not afford.
