GRANNY FLATS FOR THE HOMELESS

1)Install granny flats in the homes where mortgages are about to result in people being unable to pay and selling

2Allow owners to keep the rent and use it as a supplement on their mortgage finally if times get better for them pay it off and use the flat as they see fit.

 

2) BENEFITS

public

1 Boost to building trade and therefore also to the economy

2Homeless off streets

3 Keeps banking system and stock markets stable in so far as unpaid mortgages effects them

4 Cuts down on crime from desperate homeless people and the cost of jails

5 Cuts down on disease from homelessness stress and poverty- therefore spread to other members of the public of disease

6 Cuts down on mental instability, child abuse,insanity anxiety disorders-therefore saves public cost and level of stress in the community

7Restores faith in our institutions and could perhaps lead to less civil unrest and certainly would lead to a greater chance of election for any parliament that introduced it

private

1 Keeps people who otherwise might become homeless themselves in their homes

2 If things do not get better they do not add to homelessness themselves-in fact they get to contribute to it's solution

3If things do get better they can pay it off and have a means of living with their relatives in their old age or of installing a carer,and in between times a refuge for any member of their family who suffers economic or health problems including accidents.

4 Cuts pack on mental or physical health costs that they may incur.
