  1. Why is it that people like me can’t get the home package cause we’re on a pension. Bring back the old days for us and let us rent to buy our own homes. Or let us people get the first home buyers grant. It’s not fair. No wonder there are so many people not coping in life.

  2. Thank you because im a pensioner now nobody wants to rent me anything but i can afford 250 but its more than30% of my income so unfare even when i do part time to make it up i want to stay on queensland but maybe i av to live in a tree i can live on the smell of an oily rag just want a place even a caretaker somewhere or a shed im fit and still capable if you have any suggestions id be grateful thanks for opportunity to express

  3. I’m a pensioner whose pays over 50% in rent. I find it hard to get past the 30% requirement by most real estates, it is a way of excluding low income people because they think we may wreck the property, not true. They don’t even know how to calculate it properly, with the housing assistance, designed to help with high cost.
    We can only afford $150 a week, I challenge anyone to show me a rental for $150 a week!!
