    If it helps get high income people out of public housing, good

    Send them a list of everyone who lives in public housing - bound to get lucky with a few. :-)

    And thats perfectly ok. There are some (probably a large number) who might be earning a decent salary, but cannot afford a mortgage / down payment at the moment.

    Can he / his family afford to move into that apartment and pay the mortgage if they are evicted from public housing? No sympathies if the apt is fully paid up.

    Randomly curious.. because anecdotally, it does seem like lots of older folks seem to have saved / put money aside in property while living in the public estates.

    Being cynical, this could be a clever move. Get people used to snitching to the government for a reward on a topic most people agree on then extend it to people saying unpatriotic things.

    Should be fully paid up. When signing the contract I see that he paid around 12.5% of the current market price. The value was around 6 years of the current rent.
