Housing Options

A couple of years ago I learnt from a Portuguese friend living in London about the shared-ownershiph housing scheme. The tenant buys a share of the flat and the council owns the other share. It seemed very good and as I was starting to hate landlords, I registered with them. I wanted to own a flat in London. Even if I had the council as the landlord.
After my registration, I never heard from them again. Until today.
I received this email:

To which I replied:

Dear Housing Options,

Thank you for your email but I registered in your website almost two years ago.
I no longer live in the UK so you can forget about my subscription.
Once again I thank you for your promptness in replying to my email.

Kind Regards,




Amazing!

Tinha deixado aqui um comment tão giro mas a minha net estava emparvalhada e não ficou... buhhhh
Era qualquer coisa a ver que ao menos foi 2 anos depois de saíres do uk, porque em PT só receberias 2 anos depois da tua morte... mas tava mais giro, bolas
