LETTER: I can not afford to be a Wakefield District Housing tenant

On moving from Leeds to South Elmsall over two years ago I was delighted to have more space for myself and my family.

However, I do not understand how Wakefield and District Housing (WDH) can change their policies so heartlessly. I struggle to make ends meet yet WDH expects me to pay for a window to be replaced due to an act of vandalism which I obtained a crime number for.

I also have to pay for any damaged doors and cupboards. It seems I cannot afford to be a WDH tenant. I wonder if there is a landlord with insurance to cover damage who can rehouse us in the South Elmsall area?
