"Free Websites" Myth
These "free" sites you may find (or be offered by your landlord) are not always free. Either it is a blase forum based site, or a hidden priced site. Remember your last rent increase? Landlords pay to provide access to these systems. So basically, the cost is hidden from you within your rent charge.
We do not hide our charge, in fact we are proud it is significantly more affordable than any other provider.
Many choose to belong to both free and paid membership sites, in order to open up lots of possible opportunities. Decide how serious you are about moving and if a free site is for you, or our premium website, or both.

On April 1st 2013, new legislation came into effect, whereby anyone in social housing under-occupying their property, with one extra bedroom, will have 14% deducted from their benefit, and 25% for two or more bedrooms. This change is expected to affect 650,000 households.
Our top advice. Ask your Landlord if you are affected by the changes and join MHE so you can realign your housing arrangements, to avoid the so called "bedroom-tax".
