Why are Housing Associtions not required to follow the same rules as the PRS?Make Text Bigger
Please take a look at this article in the Huffington Post (click here)
“A housing association has repaid tens of thousands of pounds to a Black woman whose rent was higher than her white neighbour’s – in an identical house.
“Sanctuary refunded Selma Nicholls £30,000 after the overcharge left her struggling to make ends meet and facing eviction – but has refused her request for compensation after the stress and anxiety it caused.”
It is an outrageous example of abuse by a housing association.
Even if you do not think the matter is racist it is grossly unfair and victimisation.
I’m sure if this were a private landlord, all types of bodies would be prosecuting the landlord for all manner of offences.
