I agree CameraShy. If you reject a suitable property only because it is not in your preferred parish then you can't really be considered desperate can you? Is there a maximum number of properties that someone can reject before being taken off the list? If not then it is no wonder that many remain on the transfer list for decades. What is the criteria used to define someone as 'local' to a parish? Is it 15 years? Do you have to have been born there? If you weren't born there but moved there when you were one or five or ten then are you still a local to that area? Do you have to have relatives who live there and if they move do you loose your 'local' status to that parish?
