Labour would fix the housing crisis?

Minimum room sizes, sometimes arbitrary, or at least 6.51m, on already built (for me ex council) properties mean that I have had to sell 3 properties evicting 12 tenants because suddenly it was decided that it is better to have an empty room than someone happily living in it. (these rooms had always let first because of location and cost). Still not sure how this helps anyone.... Read More

Are Lambeth's Proposed Additional HMO Conditions Illegal?

I had been fearful of Lambeth, as the worst possible council that we deal with and concerned about the future for me if they did licensing for all HMO's I sold the two we had in advance of this.

£10 billion for more homes, end rough sleeping and communities

Amazing that they are doing this but happy to have tenants evicted because minimum room sizes mean it is better to have someone on the street sleeping rough (legal) but not in a comfortable room because deemed too small. We have had to sell two properties evicting 8 because one room was just under the 6.51m rule... Read More
