For this one off special, part of The Great British Property Scandal season, Phil Spencer will meet some of the people worst affected by the UK housing crisis, and helps them find a roof over their head for an opportunity to get their lives back. Some experts say that many people find themselves only three steps removed from ending up without a roof over their head. Those who lose their job and separate from their partners can come perilously close, and it often only takes one more thing to go wrong - such as getting ill - and they end up on the street. In this programme, Phil meets two men who have ended up on the streets, and learns that single homeless men are often worse off as it's especially difficult for them to find a place to live due to the acute shortage of one-bedroom accommodation. He tries to persuade the owner of a property that has been empty for years to let him renovate the building and rent it to those without a place to stay before the onset of winter.
